I've seen a lot of complaining about being a nurse on this website. It's made me think twice about becoming a nurse. I'm trying to decide whether to go into nursing or psychology. Personally, I would love to help people, but the life of an RN seems tough. First off, they have a ton of stress, and I don't want a high stress career; I have problems dealing with lots of stress (I feel burnout already as a college student at times). Secondly, they seem unhappy; I value my happiness a lot. Last, the long irregular hours are very unappealing; I can barely function off little sleep. I honestly don't know how nurses do it; it looks as though it's one of the hardest jobs you can have. On the other hand, I am very good at psychology, and a lot of it interests me. I'm bad at science and math. I'm looking into getting a masters in school psychology because I love to work with people, and help them, especially children. Please give your opinions! I would love to here.
