I'm a third year undergraduate student who used to be pre-med. I decided that becoming a physician wasn't for me because I'm much more a social person than I am an analytical person. I thought I wanted to go into foreign service because I want to travel, but I've come to realize that one of my most important priorities is raising a family, and I would much rather do that in a stable home.
So I know several things about myself:
1. I want a social career.
2. I know I'm very comfortable in a hospital setting because I have very much enjoyed volunteering in such settings.
3. I want opportunities to travel, but I want to have a stable career and earn a good salary for the benefit of a family.
My question is: I'm young, I'm still finding myself - If I couldn't hack it as a premed student, how do I know I could handle an Accelerated BSN program (which is the program I'm most interested in)? I'm a French major, Sociology minor, and I have a lot of background in science courses. I'm not horrible at science, but I know that it doesn't interest me as much as the social sciences and other liberal arts. I guess it's hard to answer a question like this, but do you think nursing is a good career choice for me? Could you tell me the pros and cons?
Thanks so much!
