I need guidance!!!!
I've been out of school for 10 years now. I didn't go to College/University after I graduated because I didn't know what career I wanted to have. I DIDN'T want to spend thousands of dollars going to school and then finding out that I don't like what I'm doing. So, I took my time. I've been working in call centre environments ever since then. And now, I HATE IT! I can't stand hearing the phone ring. I cringe. That's how bad it's gotten.
I've gone to College back in 2001. I tried Chef Training. I thought that I would of really liked it and that I would of excelled. Not so. I hated it. I couldn't stand being around sharp knives and gas and fire. Freaked me out too much. Luckily, I didn't spend too much for that course. I only stayed for 2 months. Bad...I know. BUT, the good thing about it is that I now know that being a Chef isn't something I'd like to do.
Fast forward till now, 2005. I'm going to be 28 yrs old in August (Not looking forward to 30) and I need a plan. I need a goal in my life. I WILL NOT be behind a computer, listening to people yell and call me names. Nor do I want to hear a phone ringing/beeping every 5 seconds! I've had enough of that life.
I need a career change. And I need it now!
This fall I'm going to Seneca College here in Ontario. I'll be taking a Pre-Health Science course. I'll be learning Math, Chemistry, Biology and English. I've taken all these courses before in high school, except for biology. However, I didn't get good grades in school. I didn't apply myself as well as I should of. So, I've decided to redo them all. That way, I'll be able to get better grades which in return would mean that I would have a better chance of acceptance once I apply for the course of my choice the following year.
Here's my problem. I'm divided between either becoming a Nurse and take my Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree (BScN) [4yrs] or a Veterinary Technician (RVT) [2yrs]. I like BOTH fields. But, I can't make up my mind. The length of the courses doesn't scare me. I'm willing to be in school for as long as it takes if it means that I'll have a great job afterwards with lots of opportunities. Not to mention a better pay and a better self worth. I like making a difference in peoples lives. I enjoy seeing someone or an animal feel better and smile. Yes, animals do smile. Hahaha
So, my question to you is this...
Which field should I specialize in? RN or RVT?
