HELP ME PLEASE with any info anyone can give me on my decision to become a nurse, specifically an OB-GYN nurse!!!! I am 19 years old and just recently felt this would be a wonderful career oppurtunity, however all of my life I have only ever wanted to be a teacher, but for some reason I am turning towards this very different career!!!! I have been doing some minimal research on the subject matter but will go more in depth after I get some answers and opinions from all you experienced people!!! Why I am having this sudden change of heart is unknown. I am the one who passes out at the ear pricking station to try and give blood!!??!!! But for some reason I feel as though I CAN DO THIS!!!!! Though in reading all of your stories, complaints, and praises I am really not sure if this is it!!! I LOVE PEOPLE, I am nosey person, when someone has a medical story or problem I WANT TO KNOW ALLLL the details!!! I watch trauma TV, life in the ER, and maternity ward (my favorite). Is this a phase??? I have been having dreams of doing this, I am SOOOOOOOOOo confused
!!!!! Half of my heart and mind is pulling me this way the other is pulling me towards teaching!!!??? SO, if anyone, anyone at all could give me advice, ANYTHING please write me!!!!! I posted a message before and someone named DOC gave me some VERY useful info, and I appreciate it!!!! SO anyone else, please let me know!!!! This is for my life and I thank you to EVERYONE who replys!!!!!!!!!! I APPRECIATE it from the bottom of my heart!! THANK YOU ALL and God Bless!!!
