My plan my entire life was to go to med school. It changed my senior year of high school. I'm going to NP school now, but if I had a do-over, I would've stuck with my original plan. I opted for NP instead. I'll be 30 when I graduate NP school. I felt it was more reasonable to continue in nursing, rather than start all over again.

No, if I had wanted to be an MD, I would have gone to med school. I wanted to be a nurse so I went to nursing school.

I was not scholastic as a young adult and had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. And to this day, I'm easily content and not at all ambitious. It's a small miracle that I managed to go to community college while in my 30's. Medical school was never a desire for me ...which is just as well, because it was never a serious option for me, either.

I'm 24 and have been thinking about it. I think I'm leaning more toward CRNA school, though.

I had considered it, ( & was encouraged to do so), when I was younger..
..but the more time I spent with medical trainees, the less attractive it seemed..
If you think 'nurses eat their own' - for sure, medicine is even worse..

You can't go wrong with either!
I have no desire to go to med school but I would love to get the heck out of bedside nursing at some point. Too little pay for too much crap.

Do you regret that you chose to be a nurse?

Not anymore. I don't want to spend the next 10 years of my life in school and end up neck deep in debt as a new doctor in my mid-50s. Too much life to be lived! :-)
If I had a do-over, yes, I would have gone to med school. I think more like a doctor than a nurse.
No, I do not regret becoming a nurse. It is a great career! I haven't always felt that way. I've had some pretty miserable Nursing Jobs. But I like where I'm at now. It just took a little work to get there.
There is still grad school.

As a former athlete, I had contemplated on applying for a doctorate program in PT, but my path led elsewhere. I have no regrets with nursing.

I certainly have thought about it, but I am glad I chose nursing.
