hello i am new to this site as well the nursing field (sort of) i am a physical therapist assistant and was accepted into nursing school
to begin this fall. after 14 years as a pta im jumping from the pan to the fire and going for it in nursing! but i have a major concern:almost everyone i have been talking to lately says i am totally nuts for getting into the field! why are they so negative? is there something i just don't know about, i have worked in alot of different settings in health care, i would like to think i have seen it all (or at least most) of the good,the bad, and ugly. but i am really getting discouraged by all the negative responses!?! can anyone give me advise??? i am in the pittsburgh area & start ccac in august. please let me know thanks and have a great day!!!!
