I'm currently working on my pre-reqs for Nursing. I'm hoping to get in in early 2011, which means I'd graduate in 2013. Anyways. I wasn't sure if I should post this here, as it's concerning the job market as well as nursing school, but I figured I'd try.
My mother said something today that I wasn't too sure about - she told me I'd probably have to work a job I hated until I could get one I liked. I want to go into NICU - from what I've read, some hire new grads and some don't. I've also heard a lot of people say that they are glad they went in as a new grad because it's easier to learn things that way.
It's kind of shaken me up, partially because I'm a shy person in itself and am kinda scared about starting my pre-reqs and everything. Nursing school is a huge step for me, because I am so young, and I'm scared. Her saying that I'd have to work something I hated after going to school for so long kinda worried me. So I know this is in the future, but when I do graduate, should I stick it out for a NICU job, or should I take something I hate?
Opinions, please? I'm really not sure what to do. Also, if this thread needed to go somewhere else, please tell me. ^^
