I remember wanting to be a business major until I was 17. I didn't even know what they did, big problem is I thought their job was to be office managers, so that would have been a big surprise. Then I was an elementary ed. major for 2 weeks. I shudder at the thought of that now; God bless you teachers out there. Then I chose nursing though I didn't really know what they did. Thankfully as school proceeded I didn't hate it. I am very happy with my career, but if I could counsel myself at 18. . .

Specializes in Med-Surg Nursing.

I would become a teacher. I'd be WELL on my way to being tenured..a decent paycheck..no nighshift, weekends or holidays. It's my 6th Christmas at my current job and it'll be my 5th Christmas working :(

Sure I'd have to deal with parents but it can't possibly be any worse than the families of patients that I have to put up with right now. And these families, I HAVE to be nice to or risk losing my job because I didn't provide good enough customer service!

Specializes in diabetic wound care/podiatry.

If I knew then what I KNOW NOW....All kidding aside, I have always wanted to be a nurse. My grandparents (was lucky enough to have all four into early adulthood) taught me about compassion........That being said, nursing is the best career to show that compassion. I have worked in management, retail, customer service, medical assisting, (bartender = psychologist) and all of those jobs prepared me for nursing in one form or another. I am sooooo excited that I am so close to achieving my BSN after all of the life experience and the recent start over the economy forced me into. I give huge kudos to the nurses who have stuck it out and continue to hang on! Please give the new grads a chance nurse mangers and HR! Some of us that are adults and are starting our lives over have TONS to offer!!

Razi, your young! My suggestion is change professions now. Now that I am older, in 100+K debt, and have young children, it is much harder to change professions. Nursing has only gotten harder for me

I think I would go into politics and be the first black female president, maybe its not too late:idea:
