I can't say that I always wanted to become a nurse but it was always in the back of my mind. I want a career in which I can make a difference in someone's life and help them, and a career that will always be in demand that's why I choose nursing. I'm am currently taking pre-requisites and transferring to a 4 year university in the fall of '08. But recently I started having doubts. I keep asking myself "What if I finish school and I regret becoming a nurse" or "What if I decide that its not for me when I'm halfway done with school"? This is really stressing me out and I don't know what to do. I've been also thinking about going to college to become a paralegal but this is different than nursing. Blood doesn't really make me woozy but I do have a problem with some "gross" and "nasty" things and I wish I could overcome this fear and just go for it because I keep thinking that this is the right career for me. I'm scared that I won't do good in school once I start clinicals and that I won't be able to start an IV ..lol..I know this sounds so ridiculous but did any other nurses have the same fears? This is really stressing me out and preventing me from doing something I want to do so bad. When I think about it maybe I'm not cut out to be a nurse when I'm worried aboutt it so much! Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
