After reading the posts here, I have a question. I will be starting the Nursing Program in the Fall and have just finished reading the board where they were asking "Whether you would recommend Nursing as a profession" and it scared the mess out of me
I mean, the things I read about how unsatisfied some of these Nurses are as got me wondering whether I am making the right decision. They are not happy at all. So, my question is--Do some of you feel that you are making the right decision and will not regret becoming a Nurse 10 years from now or are some of you also wondering whether this will be the right thing to do (considering the shortage, pay, hours, etc.--These are some of the complaints that I read).

i'm in the application process for lpn & i'm very excited . i worked at a hosp. before as a tech & the nurses i worked w/ didn't seem unhappy. i'm going for lpn & because the pay isn't as good as rn i'll probably do agency when i have a year under my belt also it's another way of avoiding the politics, working weekends & holidays
hope this helps
