Hi I just saw your post and wanted to respond to you. I became a nurse in 2007 and have about 2 years of experience. I know what it feels like to try and pursue something that you are not totally passionate about. I think its intelligent on your part to not want to continue in an area where you have realized that you cannot see yourself functioning in that capacity for the long haul. I knew since I was about 6 years old that I wanted to be a nurse. I could have taken nursing in HS but did not have the confidence. For me the fear or challenge was math.
I did not pursue nursing until I moved from NYC and at the age of 33 I went for it. I cannot tell you obviously about how Canada's nursing programs
or requirements would be. But I would take the time and for one go to an area hospital and talk to a few nurses if possible to ask what their experiences are and ask questions. You can also ask to shadow a nurse to get an idea of what a day in nursing would be like.
You seemed excited in mentioning the idea of helping others and that is a plus! Nursing school
here in VA was challenging and it was definitely stressful at times. I worked very hard and took it seriously because I was already a mom and a wife so I didn't have time to waste. You may have a weakness and may be a slow learner but that just means you would need to work a little harder to be successful.
I am curious as to why your parents aren't supporting you becoming a nurse? If you haven't done anything woudn't this be a positive move in a direction to better yourself? Pasha you can read a lot of posts here on AllNurses.com and you can get an idea of what you would be up against. Type in questions in the search box and sometimes you will be directed to posts that may address your question or words ie: is nursing school hard? Why did you become a nurse etc.
I hope that I have helped you in some way to begin your journey. I wish you the best of luck and I hope that you will have the peace and confidence to become whatever you desire to be. Good Luck to you....
