I've been taking prereqs to get into pharmacy school for about a year and a half now and was starting to fill out the pharmcas application for admission to the fall 2018 semester, but after taking the PCAT, I decided that it wasn't for me. I've been working in a pharmacy as a tech for 3 years and I do not want to do this for the rest of my life. Most of the prerequisites for pharmacy school overlap with nursing so I was able to take my HESI A2
and apply for admission for the spring semester. I should find out by the middle of October if i've been accepted or not.
I decided not to tell my parents that I've changed majors until I am actually accepted into nursing school
since I've changed majors 50 times and obviously never got a degree in any of them. (I've been in college since 2012). My dad constantly makes jokes about me having been in college for 5 years and still having no degree. I want them to actually take this one seriously, if that makes sense. Recently though, my mom has been talking about how she "tells everyone her daughter is going to be a pharmacist" and stuff like that. It makes me feel really guilty about not telling them that i'm not doing that anymore.
Should I continue to let them think i'm still trying to get into pharmacy school? Or should I tell them that I applied to nursing school? I'm so scared they're going to be disappointed or angry at me. How should I tell them?
