    Hello All,

    I am also at a crossroads in my life. I am 30, I have a BA in Communications and have been working in the tech industy.I make a decent salary, but I feel no reward and I cannot bear to sit at a desk for the rest of my career.

    I have been thinking nursing for a long time. If I had gone when I first started thinking about it I would be done! There is a well-respected program at a 2 year college close by. I will need to work, but I am flexible as to what I will do while in school.

    The tough thing is I feel like anyone I tell tries to talk my out of it! I have heard nursing school is so Tough...there is a high failure rate..high drop out rate. I was a very good student in undergrad...

    People tell me it is a thankless job that is why there is such a shortage.

    I need someone to give me positive feedback, I really want to do this. I would like to work in a psychiatric unit if possible. I have always wanted to work in a field where I could use my compassion a strong desire to help people, but I am confused at this point. Please give me feedback!
