I am 23 years old a mother of a 2 year old. I am wanting to become a RN and work in a hospital nearby. I am looking into Austin Community College for a associates degree in Nursing. Is there anyone else who is close in age thinking about nursing? I am intimidated when it comes to nursing as stupid as it sounds i know nurses are there to help but I am terrified I will hurt someone. I want to feel needed and I want to help others. I am very motherly and nurturing naturally. I want to be able to help my family and friends when they are sick and I want to help others. I can overcome my strange feeling when it comes to needles. I know I will grow out of it. I just need to hear that there are others my age who are feeling the same way :/ just some reassurance is nice.
