Am I Nurse Material?

  1. I am a 44 year old trying to decide if Nursing School is for me. I have been accepted into the program and have now begun to second guess myself. I have attained an Accounting and Psychology degree in my attempts to avoid Nursing School but there is always some type of draw to being a nurse. When I think of the day to day work involved, I don't know if I want that but when I think of the knowledge and compassion involved I am drawn in. My fear is dealing with vomit and shots. Not that I am afraid to get my hands dirty, just that as I get older it seems that my stomach gets weaker. Does the training involved in clinicals help one overcome their fears or am I really not cut out for the title?

    Welcome to the site

    Things may change whilst you are training and you will be surprised on what you begin to tolerate. I manage most things but detest dentures but don't let it hold me back, Good luck
