Considering Nursing...

  1. Hello everyone,

    New to the site here but I figured I would just post quick introduction. My name is Joel and I'm considering making a career change later in life to become a nurse. After a decade plus of active Army service, I'm looking at going back to school for a few years to knock out my science course prerequisites for nursing. Not sure if that is 100% what I want to do, but it seems like a rewarding career field that people enjoy. Healthcare overall appeals to me because of the very real and immediate ways in which a person can help another person during a trying time in their life.

    Anyhow, "hello" to everyone and I hope to learn a lot from y'all.

    Welcome! I'm actually in the same boat as you are about nursing. It never appealed to me to be a nurse, but I recently discovered I love children and I have always wanted to help others. I'm thinking about going for pediatric nursing, but not sure. Anyways, welcome!
