I just got accepted to Nursing School here at my local college in North Carolina.
I am really excited and nervous, but my fiance and family have really been motivating me to keep the course.
I decided to go into Nursing not long after the economy went down in 2008. I was a logger at that time working hard during the week and farming on the weekends.
I have always been interested in Nursing, but unfortunately I live in a very rural poor town. The nearest Nursing School was 2hrs away and there was no way I could afford to attend.
After working my butt off I finally saved up enough money to afford school and rent. The school I attend is a 4 year program, so that means I can graduate with a BSN.
I know this is a lot of information to share, but the reason I am is because I want to know if Nursing is really worth going into?
I've heard conflicting stories about how Nurses are needed so badly and others say they cannot find a job.
I really want a job, because I want to marry my beautiful fiance Lindsey, who I have been friends with since I was a kid.
I want to be able to provide for her and I don't want to spend the next 2 years pushing myself in this career only to meet a dead end.
Would it be worth going to Medical School vs Nursing School? Would I have a better chance at getting a job with a Medical Degree?
I know it will require a lot more schooling, but if its gonna increase my chances of having a career, then I consider it worth it.
I need some advice, some counsel.
Please if anybody has some good sound knowledge to give me, please do so.
