She needs to re-evaluate her dream.
People always say there are many jobs in nursing that don't involve the "gross stuff". The reality is you have to make it through nursing school and your attitude towards providing care is evaluated. Patients can sense who is just going through the motions.
Then there are the "you go girl" posters who list tons of jobs that don't involve direct patient care. Yes, those jobs exist but not everywhere. Hospitals are unionized and seniority plays a big part in who gets what job. Then there the need to accomodate injured nurses who can't work the floor and guess where those nurses go?
Reality checks suck. If she wants to invest two or four years of her life to become a nurse, she has to be able to face the nasty bits. There is no shame or disgrace in admitting you rethought your plans. Looking back, I wanted to be a nurse right out of Grade 12. My Mum talked me out of it and I came to it late in life when it was time to retrain after raising my family. Know what? My Mum was right, I couldn't have done it in my early 20s but the life experience I gained by my 40s got me through it.
Dreams change, I wanted to be a stewardess, a ballerina, a nurse, a librarian, and a teacher. I've done 3 out of 4.
I've accepted I'll never get my dream job in nursing because I'll never have enough seniority and I pray that I don't get injured to get it.
