I am in the process of getting registered at college in my home town, Temple, Texas, to go to nursing school
, but seem to be having some second thoughts....Not sure if I am nursing material. I like helping people and I know it is hard work, but unsure if my personality would work with it....soft-hearted and sometimes unsure, but also know that once you get used to doing something that you can persevere on.......any thoughts would be a wonderful help.

Good luck to you. Sounds like you're pretty self-aware. As long as you can be tough when you need to be, not afraid to confront, able to handle criticism and be your own assertive (not aggressive) advocate, you'll be o.k. with those qualities you mentioned. Nursing is not for the faint of heart.......you have to be tenderhearted for sure, but also tough as nails.
