Hello everyone I'm new to this site and I need realistic and positive advice.I'm a freshman college student at queensborough community college in new York. Right now I'm taking basic courses like math English etc. I've been interested in nursing and some reasons are that you make good money and it's an area that are always looking for nurses. I don't have a passion for it, maybe I will if I shadow and get a taste of it. But I think as long as I make patients feel good and treat themRight, I have a sense of humor and I'm easy going that I could go for it. I know the nursing area is very competitive. But to me success is not easy and you have to work hard for and dedicate yourself, it's what you make outOf it. But I'm a little confused on which path to take. Right now I need to get into something and make some income cause right nowI can't work and go to school at the same time. I want toTry tO look into a year program or something less I'm just really confused and need some pointers. Should I just finish my basic courses at this community college and look into being a medical assistant so I could make some income and also get a taste of nursing? Should I look into being a phlebotomist? Or should I just finish my 2 years and become a lpn and then go for my RN? I don't want to go straight into being a RN becauseI'm not 100% sureAny nursing students who went through the same situation as I or have useful advice I would appreciate everyones feedback! Thank you in advance.
