I had a great teacher for Political Science in college. He was a lawyer before he started to teach. He was saying that if he could go back, he would never become a lawyer and that he lost so many years of his life doing his intence job. At that point I was deciding between a law school or medicine and I choose to go nursing. I have a Paralegal degree (AA from community college) and after I finish my nursing degree, I would try to combine both. (I actually haven't even started nursing yet, but I applied for BSN and hopefully will start in January 2010)
Good luck in your MSN. Who are you trying to become?
