I will graduate with my teaching license in May of this year.
But I realize now that my heart isn't 100% into teaching- I enjoy lecturing and my subject, but I feel like I have to do a lot of behavior management, bureaucratic paperwork, and it doesn't include any involvement in healthcare, which I thought I would be doing since high school.
So, what should I do? I'll have a bachelor's of science in math with a license in secondary education in May. Should I try to take pre-requisites while I teach and apply to schools
? I have some experience as a home health care aide, working with physically and neurologically disabled clients, and I found that work really fulfilling and I could see myself continuing to do work like that. I really enjoy patient care, which is why nursing is slightly ahead of going to medical school to be a physician.
What would you suggest? Is there something that you wish you had known prior to starting as a nurse?
I appreciate any and all input! Thank you!
