I'm considering switching my major into nursing. I have already gotten into a great program and everything, but I'm still undecided. I have a few questions.. I heard that there really isn't a nursing shortage just a lack of experienced nurses. Is this true, what is your take on this? Also, I hear many nurses complaining about their jobs. Some say that they hate the career they chose, my mother being one of them. She doesn't exactly have my back on this whole nursing idea. So do many nurses hate their careers? I know I shouldn't rely on the internet, but I see so many nurses complaining about their jobs and most of the nurses I know just seem miserable. My last question is how much family time do you have? Nurses typically work 12 hour shifts. My mom was able to raise me fine on her own, but I am an only child and I would like to have more than one someday. Thanks in advance!
