Hello! I just migrated here in Queens, New York from Cavite, Philippines last October 14. I have not finished my BS Chemical Engineering degree in the University of the Philippines - Diliman Campus yet but I was convinced by my family to grab the opportunity and live with my mom already. They told me I can continue studying here. I am an incoming 3rd year BS ChE student and got to finish 60+ units - mostly Math, Chemistry and Physics. I am faced with a situation wherein I need to really decide which career I would want to pursue 'cause I now have the opportunity to change my degree. After two years of studying BS ChE, I was kind of disheartened by the difficulty of the lessons and I know that I can no longer compete with the intellectuals in UP who, in the first place, are from different National Science Highschools which, I ain't a graduate of - I believe it's what sets me apart from the people I deal with everyday in UP. Well, I don't want that to be the topic here so let's just say that I realized I don't want ChE anymore. It's not for me. And now that I am able to change my future profession, I am leaning towards health related degrees because as I see things here, the highest paid and in demand professionals are those in the health field.
This is getting long, I hope you're still with me. I am just wondering if shifting to BS Nursing would credit most of my earned units. Would BSN still be high in demand after I graduate 4 years or less (if my credits get accepted)? Which is the better way to RN: ADN first then work while taking up ADN-BSN or straight BSN? I care about earning money ASAP because I plan to get student aid. Also, I wanna help my mom in our expenses. She's 50+ years old already and is a cancer survivor - she's weak and I want her to have a break. So much for that. Anyway, what would be the best degree to shift into if not Nursing? I want to know other degrees that would have my previous units accepted so I won't spend much time, effort and money (debts, really). Thanks so much to those who are going to answer my questions. I hope at least one would.
