Quote from lindseynicole12
But, I decided that it was too much risk to go to school and get a degree in a field where it's difficult to find a job.
You realize that this pretty much applies to nursing as well, right? If you poke around the boards here you'll quickly discover that in many parts of the country it is incredibly difficult for new grads to find work. You may find that the aspects of nursing that you say are important to you ("job stability, good pay, good benefits") may not materialize once you graduate.
If you know you don't like science, hospitals, or nursing in general than it doesn't seem like nursing is going to be the career for you. If you want to be a PA you definitely do not have to go through nursing school
first; like someone else said, maybe you could look into getting a BS in nutrition or something. But if your "dream career" is in journalism you may never be satisfied in any health care profession. It's difficult to find a job in many
fields these days, may as well pursue something you love.
