    Advice for changing my major. Leaving nursing?

    Thank you Carrie I feel for your friend working in CPS. It seems to be the hardest on people. Nursing seems so versatile, that's why I keep going back to it. Thank you!

    You feel better now? You really showed me there buddy. "Undesirables" is what other people refer to the population SW work with when I tell them I want to be a SW. Same as people saying SW is fine but you'll have to "pay your dues" by working with poor people. I was the undesirables. I was poor people, so get off your soap box. The stereotype has proven to be true that female dominated careers are filled with smug brats. I'll enjoy my "leather chaise" now, please lmao.

    Online CNA Classes?

    Hello! I have decided to become a CNA to better understand the field. Are there any reputable online CNA classes? Or is this something that is better done as face to face training?

    Losing sleep over possibly changing my major.

    I am glad to hear someone views school like that. So many people have told me nursing school is the hardest thing they have ever done and you truly have to love it or you won't make it through. Some other people have suggested becoming a CNA to better understand what the roles people play in the hospital. Thank you!

    I was 2 people away from getting into nursing school. 600ish applications for 60 spots.... I made a B in AP1&2. Just do the best you possibly can. Remember that the majority of people are average, the work you put into it is what sets you apart. You will do great!

    Advice for changing my major. Leaving nursing?

    Neo solider I understand what you are saying about money which is why I have sat down with a financial advisor. All of these fields I am looking into make enough money for me otherwise I wouldn't be looking into them. I believe in taking care of yourself before others. I said money wasn't my motivation because I would take a job that makes less if it means doing what I love. My deciding factor will never be money unless it's having to live on the streets type poor. I work front desk at a clinic now and I like it a lot. I get to speak to patients and just be someone who listens to them. My coworkers however are the most miserable people. I float between 3 clinics and this is the case everywhere. The Dr. hates it the NP regrets every going into nursing, and the nurses and X-ray techs hate every time a patients walks in the door. I don't know why everyone is so miserable and mean to the patients and each other. I'm hoping the majority of the medical field isn't so glumy. I will definelty look into becoming a CNA to enable myself to see other roles in the hospital. Thank you!

    That is a great idea. So CNA or nurse tech would be the path I need to take to open up these opportunities for me?

    Thank you so much for the advice Neats!! Thinking about how I like to watch things unfold and how much time I will be spending with either clients or patients opened up a new way of thinking for me too. Thanks!

    Advice for changing my major. Leaving nursing?

    Thank you both for your advice. Cyc0sys Nursing is hard to give up bc it is so diverse. Of course, with social work I will have to "pay my dues" by working with the population that are seen as less desirable, but that's okay. I'm actually interested in doing that... for a little while. And I know new grads don't jump into private practice. Job descriptions in my area typically look for 1yr of experience to get hired on with a agency that doesn't work with "undeserirables". I would never JUST get a BSW. SW is MSW-LCSW or ending up in your 3rd friends position after years of service. How do your friends like their jobs? And where are their jobs located if you don't mind me asking? Brownbook you didn't really say anything that wasn't money realated. I suppose I should have added I am not money motivated lol. I know what I need to make to have the life I desire in my area, which it is possible with the career choices I am researching. Do you know anything about psych nurse job duties or the setting they usually work in?
  14. Hey everyone, I am applying to NS, but I didn't look at my other options before I dove into this major 100%. The human mind and human behavior interest me way more than any of this pharm, physiology, or bio stuff. I know I want to do something in the "helping field", but I am not particularly excited to begin NS. I have looked at other fields such as social work, management, and counselling... and yes, psych nursing too, my hesitation with that is I will have to make it through NS to get there lol... which I have already mentioned I'm not very excited about since it doesn't seem like anything they study interest me. Since many nurses work side by side with some of these professions (Mgmt, SW, psych nursing, counselors) what can you tell me about what they do? Pros/Cons of the profession? Thank you!

    Losing sleep over possibly changing my major.

    I am uncertain whether or not I like nursing. I know I definitely won't stick with it if I don't though. That's why I will be taking a semester to explore more. I never once enjoyed AP2. I enjoyed AP1... but for the wrong reasons I suppose. I was good at AP1 & I gained confidence from it, didn't really think what I was learning was interesting though. I have heard other people say the same thing about psych nursing!! Yikes! So say I find I do like nursing but hate what nurses learn in school... do many nursing student dislike their studies but love nursing??
