I am having a dilemma. I dont know whether I want to be a nurse or a doctor. I would LOVE to become a doctor, but 8 years of school and residency ahead of me isn't at all appealing. I have met the guy that I want to marry, and I want to do just that... I want to have time to get married, have a family, and have a comfortable life. So I thought about nursing... It seems pretty nice, you can have a schedule where you only work 3 days a week... And I would eventually go back to get my masters in CRNA or NP. But then I come on here and it seems that nursing isn't such a great career choice... But I just want a job where I will be able to have time to raise a family.. And not when Im 32.. (Im 17 now) But I mean, of course,, after I get a BSN I could always go back get premed reqs, and go to med school... But I dont know.
So I guess my question is.. If you guys could go back in time.. Would you have rather gone to nursing school again or medical school? And do you honestly think nursing is a better career choice than a doctor, as far as being able to spend time with and raise a family?
