I am 26 years old with a 9 month old son. I have been considering nursing as a career for some time now and have decided to apply for the fall enrollment. Unfortunately while i was on the web looking for encouragement and good news i stumbled across this forum. YIKES!!!!!! What am i thinking!!!! If my fellow nurses dont eat me alive, apparently the system will anyway. in the meantime, my son will miss out on his mother because she will be overworked, broke and in a bad mood. After a few years, i will have to quit because of burn out and i may came back, maybe. have a summarized it right? this is my future huh? YIKES, i say...YIKES!!!!
