Hi there! I am currently an LPN. My story is a bit unusual but I am desperately reaching out for advice from others in the nursing profession. I have worked as an LPN for 2 years now. I love caring for others and the opportunities nursing has to offer. early in my career I started experiencing debilitating anxiety. I began having difficulty with panic attacks and basically was told by my doc it was work related. I did not see myself getting better and went out on a whim and applied for a radio-logic sciences program in attempt to stay in the health field but not have the anxiety of a nurse. Well I was accepted and have successfully completed the first year (two year program) I have quickly realized that only taking xrays does not give me the fulfillment nursing did. I am torn because I now am weighing my options of completing this degree or jumping into the LPN to RN bridge program I was recently accepted into. Both are great careers but I am battling within myself of finishing what I started with radiology or leaving that program while I have the opportunity to jump back into nursing school this go round. My anxiety level has decreased greatly bc I only work part time as a LPN while in school. I do still suffer panic attacks these days but theyre not as fueled by the radiology field as nursing did. MEntal health versus fulfilling career?! Help Please!!
