Hey ,I'm New

  1. Hello Everyone! I'm a 21 year old college student,I Finally got around to joining this board and I'm looking forward to chatting and sharing stuff with you guys. I just recently switched my major to nursing. I was getting my BS in computer science but really felt it wasn't going to suit me. I love computers don't get me wrong ,Im a huge computer nerd but I don't see myself being satisfied in the field nor enjoying the work. I was doing intern work and actually did 3 different intern projects in different areas and just did not enjoy it at all. I felt it would help people in some way but not the way I wanted to. So after a career test,talking to nurses in the field and with my mom (who has her BSN and was in the field for 16 years) I switched my major and will keep computers as a hobby. I've always wanted to help people and have been a pretty sensative person so nursing seems to suit me well. I absolutely adore my course work so far and find all of it interesting as all get out. Yeah I will be in school for a bit longer because of my drastic major switch but atleast I feel comfortable with it and can see myself really enjoying it. Thanks alot. I look forward to chatting it up with you guys!
