I am looking for some advice. I am a 32 year old stay at home mom (previously a bank/financial manager.) I have always been interested in the medical field and I now have an opportunity to explore that. I am taking my pre req classes now and plan to start nursing school next fall. Because I don't know much about the medical industry I have done some shadowing. First on the med/surg floor. That was a terrible experience for me and I could never see myself working there. Then on the mother baby unit and that was amazing! I watched several births and a c section, however I then got scared not knowing how I would handle the emotions of a child who didn't make it. Are these fears normal? i have also been considering dental hygiene or physical therapist asst. i don't have time to change my mind later, it is now or never for me so I have to make the right decision. Thanks in advance for any advise!
