Thinking about LPN school

  1. Hello,
    I would like to introduce myself and say hello to everyone here!
    I am NOT a nurse, but am strongly considering going into nursing. I already have a bachelors degree in education. It has not panned out the way I thought it would. I am tired of working low pay jobs and being stomped on in the corporate world.

    Money is NOT the reason I am considering nursing. I desire to help others and have been told I am a very caring person. I have to admit, the job security of nursing is quite appealing. It would allow me to relocate and be able to get a job right away.

    How does one know if nursing is the career for them? I have read on this website that there are so many areas of nursing one can go into. A person would not always have to be in a nursing home or hospital setting.
    Can anyway give me any advice to "test" myself if nursing is the job for me?

    HI! Welcome! You might want to post your question in the general nursing discussion forum or one of the student forums to get more answers. ANd, I would bet that there is a website out there somewhere that has a test of the sort you are looking for! LOL!
