The biggest mistakes of my life have been made doing what other people thought was right for me, or following what SEEMED like the right path, but just felt wrong.
If you really do feel confused, spend some time reflecting, asking (more) questions, filling in any information holes you might have.
Then, do what feels right to you; I feel sure that if you follow your gut, you'll look back and see why your choice really worked out best.
I'm starting an LPN program in a month. I have a bachelors (liberal arts) and two masters (health fields), and I was assured by an advisor that I'd get into the ABSN program here, no problem.
When I had to make the decision between doing the ABSN and doing this LPN, followed by a bridge program, I just felt no peace about doing the ABSN. Conversely, I felt great peace about this (longer) path.
I had several RNs (including administrators, etc.) call me and basically ask me if I was crazy? ("Why would you take a step back?") But someone on the outside looking in (to your life) cannot possibly come to a conclusion about the right choice for you. They can challenge you to think and question, and that is good. They can give you information that might help you make the right decision. But they cannot know what is right for you in an instance like this.
In the weeks since I had to make the final decision, I have seen exactly why the LPN followed by bridge is best for me and my family, and I am so relieved I made the decision to go with my "gut."
Some part of me (my intuition? my higher-level, but not frontal lobe, cognitive faculties?) did the "math" and gave me the right answer when creating "pros and cons" lists was just not enough.
Anyway, I just feel so strongly that you should follow the path that gives you peace in your core.
People never seem to regret making that choice.
