- by Tameka2010 Jan 2I am currently a high school teacher and after only three years teaching, I really do not like my job. I am a hard-worker, but I find teaching monotonous and stressful in all the wrong ways. I am seriously considering a career in nursing, and I almost went into nursing but chickened out because of the blood and guts. For the seasoned nurses out there, is nursing a better career than teaching in your opinions. Any guidance you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

The can also specialized in different nursing role and with higher work experience their salary is quite good as well.Last edit by TheCommuter on Jan 8 : Reason: removed weblink
- Jan 8 by akaniniI taught fifth grade for a few months and HATED it. Nursing gives me more opportunity and different experiences. You should go for it!
- Jan 16 by sh1015I'm in a very similar situation.
I left academics for education. And then hated education. I didn't even make it through the teacher training I was so bored. I love, love working with kids, but I don't want to be their classroom teacher every singe day.
I'm considering nursing, too. I think I'm going to become a CNA first to see if it's for me before I dive all the way in.
Funny, most of my close friends are teachers and they pretty much all hate their jobs. I have other friends who are nurses and they love it. They'll admit it's hard, but they never regret going to nursing school.
