I'm a 25 year old male who needs help making a decision. I'm currently an accounting major at Cypress College in SoCal. I have to take one more science class without a lab and an art class to transfer to a CSU in the Spring or Fall of 2013.
Lately, I've been thinking about becoming an RN instead of an Accountant. I do enjoy numbers; I just happen to be bored of sitting behind a computer all day. Like some people who were/are in the same situation, often ask themselves: What did I accomplish today? I want something more physically demanding and more satisfying in the sense that I saved lives today.
I became interested in the field again because
1) I work for a home healthcare agency (accounting dept) and
2) Male ER Nurse friends who I have developed a close relationship to have been talking to me about how much nursing sucks (for a lack of a better word); They also tell me about how much satisfaction they get. They love what they do.
I'm in a position at school where I only need to take the following Pre-Reqs:
General Human Anatomy, General Human Physiology, Medical Microbiology
I want to take the program at a JC or a CSU. Will an Associate's Degree be good enough?
Any help would be appreciated!
