I am brand new to the forum, I don't know if this is a tight-knit community or more just random posters. I am a student--just turned 23 actually and wrapping up my BA in liberal arts. For the past year I've been trying hard to figure out what to I want to do as a career with no luck! I never considered nursing before because I've heard a lot of negative things about it--about how nurses are worked to death, unappreciated, etc. There are a lot of doctors in my family and I've never really wanted to be a doctor but it never occurred to me that i may want to be a nurse! So here I am, and I think this is what I want to do. I'm tired of my liberal arts degree and ready for a change, and I'm looking forward to starting to take my prereqs but I'm just nervous! I only have one completed so far, the easiest one-nutrition (I'm interested in the post bac bsn programs by the way). Anyway, any advice? I hope I'm on the right track! My undergrad gpa is currently 3.77 and I hope with hard work I'll be able to make mostly A's in the science prereqs.
