I need help and advice please!!

  1. Hello, I'm a senior in high school and wanted to be a nurse until I entered Anatomy and Physiology. I HATE IT!!! Studying is like pulling teeth. I just want to travel (specifically Europe) and help children. I don't know If nursing is for me, I thought that it was what I wanted to do but now I'm thinking speech pathology. Which would be better for me and what my dreams are? What field makes more? Please help me! I always wanted to be in neo-natal but I was told that it is nearly impossible to get accepted in that program. Help me

    A&P courses are tough, I hated them. But, it is not a reason to not go into nursing. It is just something that you have to get through to reach your goal.

    When you talk about traveling, are you talking about medical mission trips or working in Europe as a nurse?

    Working in Speech Pathology requires a Master's degree. That would mean 6 yrs of school. There are jobs in Pediatric Speech Pathology.

    Neonatal nursing is not a program. You need to either get your Associate degree in Nursing or your Bachelor Degree in Nursing, then apply to jobs in Neonatal. It can be difficult to get a job as a new graduate in NICU, but it is possible.
