So, I am at a loss... I'm currently enrolled in a community college, and will be transfering to a four year school soon. However, I am not sure what I want my major to be- I am torn between nursing and teaching!
I love children, and the thought of being able to help them learn and grow as individuals warms my heart... however, I feel as though I wouldn't really
be making a difference. Which is what has lead me to consider nursing.
My grandmother was a nurse for thirty some years, and I've grown up with her telling me stories about the profession- I've always been fascinated with it. She tells me I have just the right mix of compassion, responsibility, and dedication to make it as a nurse... but to be honest, I'm just concerned that I'm not intelligent enough to learn everything that is needed in nursing.
So, my question is... for someone who really isn't THAT great at math or science (but can study their behind off in a pinch) what is better in my situation- teaching or nursing? Which is also the better field to get into?
I figure if I want to be a nurse enough, I will make it happen- I'm just afraid that I won't be able to 'hack' it.
Thank you so much for your time!
