I was accepted into an accel. BSN program in Pennyslvania for the spring of 2004. I already have a BS in Business and wasn't happy with my career path. I was a nurses aide for a while and liked it so that is why I decided on nursing but now I am having doubts. I have talked to alot of nurses and they wouldn't recommend the career. I think there are so many opportunties. I am also attracted to other healthcare field careers like physical therapy, occupational therapy and ultrasound. What should I do? I want to make the right decision.

To this I say it is never too late as a nurse you are more than qualified to be a dental hygenist just find a place willing to train you
I am sorry, but I disagree here. (No offense meant.) As I said in my previous post, I am a dental hygienist. Nursing and dental hygiene are NOT very similar.
Also, dental hygienists are not "trained". It is a university education...4 yrs. for an associate's degree (counting 2 yrs. pre-reqs) and 5-6 yrs. for a bachelor's degree. Just like RN's, we take state board exams (although we have 2...one written and one clinical) and obtain a professional license that must be maintained with CE hrs.
