Be patient with my indecision

  1. 0 I'm tired of searching for the ideal career given that I am desperately in need of one.

    I'm so tempted to go the masters route in nutritional science and hope to pursue a PhD thereafter. Whether I choose to do so or not, 6-7 years will be here anyway but with virtually no real income still (compared to nursing).

    I get paid a stipend in these graduate programs.... hardly sustainable. I don't want to pay any more money on study guides and no, I won't do so for the GRE.

    Nursing, despite the difficulty in landing a job, is still remarkably the better choice for my needs, it appears. I am sooo nervous about embarking in a nursing career as I'm a career changer. I still do not regret leaving pharmacy and I doubt I ever will. That's fo' sho'!

    I've had enough researching careers for the night.

    Never fear. Any career is what you make of it. Whether it be plumbing, nursing, or dog walking, I believe an intelligent, resourceful person can find a way to be happy and successful.

    I sense what I suffer from: the desire to do everything. Sometimes it's not so much a desire, but an acute awareness of all of the endless possibilities

    At some point you have to pick. Pick and FINISH, because there will always be a new possibility.

    If you become a nurse and bring in a steady income, you're opening yourself up to more opportunities. There are countless paths to pursue in nursing, and at the the very least you'll have a paycheck to get you through training for something completely different if nursing isn't your end-all-be-all.
