Hi everyone, I'm new on here but figured this is the best place to post any worries I'm having about choosing nursing. This summer I graduated from UCLA with a degree in Sociology. I like challenges, love helping people and want a career where I can do that every day. I'm currently trying to figure out what I want to do with myself while working as a receptionist. Nursing interested me in high school, but once I found out about IV's I ran the other direction and pursued my dream of transferring to UCLA. Once graduation got closer I began thinking of nursing as a career again. I'm currently taking anatomy and I'd only have 2 other prerequisites to complete before I could apply to nursing school (if I chose nursing). My main concern is getting over my "fear" of IV's/tubes, I really don't think the other things would bother me, however, whenever I tell people this the common response is "how can you be a nurse if you are scared of iv's etc" or "it's only going to get worse" urgh....In the mean time I'm sending out applications to become a nursing volunteer so I can get a better perspective on all of this. Any advice would be appreciated
! Sorry if this is too long and all over the place.
