Quote from Charmedone619
I am a freshman in college and almost a month into classes I realized that I am unhappy with the major I am in. Something kept telling me that I should switch to nursing and I have talked with someone about doing this. It will be very difficult since I spent the first semester taking classes for another major. I am trying to figure out if switching is worth it. I believe that I would be a good nurse and be able to connect with patients. I am good at science and definitely think that I could handle the academics of nursing. My major "sticking point" (no pun intended) is the needles aspect of nursing, specifically IVs. I think that I could get over this fear easily with practice. I dont want to jump into this decision and discover that it was the wrong choice. I am sorry that my post is long, but this has been a difficult choice for me and I was hoping that I could get advice from other students who may be in or have gone through the same situation that I am in.
You are making the same mistake that I made when I started school as a freshman.
The only courses you need to take in your first two years are your general education courses until you know without a doubt in your head, what your major will be.
If you have the option, take probability and statistics for your math, AP I and AP II for your science or two semesters of chemistry....these will usually generalize to other majors in case you change your mind.
It took me 7 years to get my undergrad...because I STARTED school working on my major, so every time I changed my mind, I lost all of those courses...then I had to come up with a minor (required) and finish up my gen ed.
You are young, you have plenty of time...work on Gen Ed.
