I'm a 25yr old nursing student in an accelerated program in NY. I graduate in December and I would love to hear from the nurses who love what they do and are happy they picked this profession. This website can be quite disheartening at times because so many people post about the "horrors of nursing". I've seen people write don't do it, you'll see, turn back now and so on. In a field that people choose knowing its going to be hard work and long hours I'm surprised to see how many people complain about the decision they've made. I have chosen this field because though it may be hard and we may not get the thanks we so deserve, at the end of the day I'd rather be making small differences in the day to day lives of my patients than crunching numbers or selling advertising or planning how CEOs should spend their vacations.So please for all the nurses out there that love what they do and wouldn't change "turn back" please share your stories and remind this nursing student what it's really all about and why I can't wait to start.
