Okay, so I have a Dilemma here. I've always wanted to be a nurse since I was 5 (24 now). I recently failed out of my senior year of nursing school
-RN and they're so strict I might not be able to get back in (which I get).
So I was thinking of doing LPN first then do a bridge. Thing is I don't know if I want to be a nurse anymore, this semester was so brutal and I was having such a tough time. My mom is a nurse and so is her 7 sisters and pretty much the entire family. I'm trying to keep my options open: EMT-thing is the pay sucks, and I wasn't going into nursing for the pay I genuinely love helping people.
Criminal justice and forensic is my other love, Im looking at associates degrees at my local community college. I could be a corrections officer or investigate crime scenes.
at this point I feel like I'm just going to do LPN so I won't let my mom down and her side of the family. my dad understands and just wants me to do what interests me. I just feel horrible my mom has paid my entire school out of pocket (pre reqs and the nursing at a community college) and now I feel like changing careers, I don't want her thinking that she wasted all that money. She also "brain washed" me since I was little thinking that I won't financially survive at all if I was anything but a nurse
Thanks in advance for reading this. Maybe I'm over thinking...but my anxiety isn't helping
