Nursing isn't your area.

  1. 0 Since I had that battle with the hospital that forced me to resign, and that Nurse Manager telling me that "Nursing isn't your area and you should think about another field"
    I have contemplated on going the LPN route and *trying* the nursing field out. What she said really hurt me and made me reevaluate my career choice. I grew up in a medical fam (dad's a physician with his own practice, mums a nurse with masters...and I volunteered 4 years in the hospital growing up) I loved the atmosphere, I love the patients and the staff that took care of them. I cried and moped around after that hospital ordeal, after speaking to my mum, she assured me that Nurse manager was probably a sign to test me if this was something I wanted.

    After a long battle about LPN or RN...I decided to seriously buckle down and go for the RN. If I went the LPN route it would be harder for me to find a qualifying bridge program and I may have to find another job because lpn jobs are usually 9-5...and that's when nursing school is. I'd much rather bite the bullet and go for the long route. I messed up bad in College and so I can only take one class a sem. I am looking to apply for the fall 2015 program.

    It sucks, but I have to be patient and really focus on my class so I can get into the program I want. I am looking to get into a BSN program here at UTC. Eventually I would love to be an NP, so my plan is to go for the BSN...and then work in the OR and go for the RNFA...then sit for the CRNFA :3 It's a long route and it's going to be very hard...but I am very motivated and I feel I got this

    After that hospital, I thought my fiance would get upset because I was let go (I don't like to just sit at home and not work) He has been crazy supportive and got another job to support us both until I found something else :'( He's amazing and supports me with whatever I would like to do :3

    Since that ordeal, my studying habits changed and I feel like I'm on fire

    Anyways, I just wanted to say thanks to everyone that has commented on my indecisive decisions about one or the other.

    ...And reading this vent of doom haha

    Awwh it seems like your family is an amazing support system, and have vast amount of knowledge to help you succeed in the medical field. One person's opinion( obviously a bitter person) does not define you or measure your skills! I wish you the best of luck, you got this just never give up!!
