I am tired of sitting at a desk all day and need some excitement. I can not wait to start school. Is it as painful as I have heard?
I just wanted to say hello to everyone and hope I don't quit before I ever get started.
Good on ya, Amy. If it's excitement you want, you can certainly find it in nursing. And frustration. And Reward. And Joy. And tears. And Comrades. And people-that-you-hope-you'll-never-have-to-talk-to-again-ever. Mainly you'll find yourself part of a community.
Not to mention travel. I've been a nurse from coast-to-coast and Alaska, too. Couldn't have done that as a computer programmer...
Yeah, nursing school can be a Canine-mother, but just persevere and you'll do fine. It will be an experience that will stay with you the rest of your life. The first of many. Good luck and hang in there. It's worth the hassle. (even when, in ten years, you're saying to yourself "WHY did I do this?" Even then, you'll know why)
