Some questions for nurses?

  1. 0
    Hi, I'm new to this site so if I put this is the wrong category I apologize. I would like to get advice from nurses, because I don't really know anyone that's a nurse and it would help me out a lot.
    So I've put a lot of thought of becoming a nurse, I'm in college doing my pre reqs. I decided I wanted to do this because helping people makes me happy, I like thrill/excitement, and I want to make a good living to support myself and family.
    Lately I've been having doubts, because I'm not sure I would love this career once I had it.

    So these are my questions:

    -Do you love or regret your career of nursing?
    -What was your life like before, and what's it's like now being a nurse
    -Did you have the same doubts?
    - What's your opinion of qualities that you think nurses should have, and what weaknesses do you think are a deal breaker?

    If you have any other advice please feel free to share (:
    Thank you soo much in advance.

    My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. I was a stay at home mom of 4 for about 14 years before I decided to try nursing, but I was too scared. Bit the bullet and 1 year in, I am loving it, finding my place and my way, and feeling successful. I learn something new everyday, and help newer nurses find their footing as well!

    Qualities? Compassion, intelligence, be a team player, and have some confidence (nobody knows it all, if they think they do they are just going to hurt someone, but for god's sake have a backbone)!
