Hey fellow nurses/soon to be nurses, can you guys give me some advice with this because I am having difficulty deciding what to do with my life. Well I just turned 23 and during and after high school I never knew what I wanted to career wise. Currently I am a server and more then ever want to be independent from my parents, not that I don't like them, they will be supporting me big time with school.
During high school I was a fairly shy person who had a hard time talking to people who I didn't know but now since i'm in my 20's I love meeting new people and Nursing seems to be a career where I get to be on my feet and "on the go", and yes I do absolutely like helping people. What I am mostly scared of is the actual schooling, I have researched about the topic much with a lot of mixed answers but many stating that the actual difficulty is not bad but the amount of information is a lot. During high school I didn't do well period, it's not because I was a dumb person but because I was very lazy and lacked dedication and during those rare times where I did focus on a subject I did well. Does that indicate whether I will succeed or not on my course of being a RN? I mean I will be giving it my all in this, since i'm mature now school will be different for me.
I feel like I am doubting myself whether I can get this done. Now if I were to pursue this career I would have to upgrade my Biology and Math to start my pre-reqs. The way I was thinking of pursing being a RN was to perhaps go for my LPN and work as a LPN while doing a RN bridge program. I am located in BC, Canada if that helps. Guys I don't know what to think really, i'm just seeking advice from people who have experience with nursing, thanks.
