I think that you should listen to your heart. This will be your career. Ask yourself this, will I be happy in nursing 10-15 years from now? Don't go for nursing if your friends are telling you this is what you should be doing. You should be going into nursing if this is what you feel is your calling, what you were born to do. If this is how you feel, along with your friends say this is what you should do, listen to them.
are a lot of money. I just graduated from my LPN program this summer and I have 28,000 dollars in loans not counting my other loans from community college.
I also don't think that you should fear failure. It only shows that you tired and you learned from it. You try, you fail, you try, you fail, the only true failure is if you stopped trying.
