If you could go back would you still choose nursing?

  1. If you could go back to before you started nursing would you still have chosen to be a nurse? And if not what would you have choosen to do instead?

    YES!!! I've wanted to be a nurse for literally as long as I can remember, and I have absolutely no regrets.

    No, no, no, a thousand times no. Anything but this.

    I can't imagine doing anything else.

    To have a job that you love is one of the most satisfying things in life.

    Not an RN yet, but I know I won't regret this decision. I love nursing.

    Yes, without a doubt. My only regret is that I waited until my mid 30's to go to nursing school. I wish I had gone right out of high school.

    I'm not done with school yet but from my past experiences and everything I've done up to this point, I can't imagine anything else that would fulfill me as much as nursing. I love my patients and my work (yes, especially being a CNA). The biggest complaint I have at this point is the paper work and not having the time with my patients.
