Nursing, like everything in life, is what you make of it. If you look for it to be exciting, challenging and rewarding it will meet and exceed your expectations and the times when the work is hard and unglamorous will be easy to overlook. If, however, you think it will be unexciting, mundane and unrewarding it will be endless hours of boring charting, difficult and often disgusting tasks and the wonderful moments that occur when you are a nurse will get lost. Hope to see you on the sunny side!:spin:

Welcome to Allnurses. Check out the various forums and see what our issues are and what's it's like. Be sure to check out the Success Stories in Nursing forum because we tend to come the various forums with our problems and it seems like nursing is all negative.
