    Wow congratulations on 30 years of service! I get the venting part...everyone has to vent...and I think most people are not going to type a post about how much they love nursing, but rather come here to vent when they've had a bad day. So as a whole it looks like nobody enjoys their job. Serving God through our works is why I don't think I could ever do anything in business and so on. I would not feel like I am making any difference in the world other than earning other people more money. Thanks for sharing your experience

    Why PA over NP? I have applied to PA school in the past...got waitlisted but never accepted. I realized it was a blessing in disguise because after reviewing the role of NP vs PA, I felt like NP fit much better with what I was trying to achieve.

    I agree. I think some of the people I've talked to are just not happy with their lives in general. I am a pretty positive person, I love helping and caring for people, and I am usually happy. I never really have much to complain about in my current state. I strongly believe that it has to do with that type of person...not the situation they are in. Finding good in everything is possible. Thank you for the feedback! I hope one day I will have a nursing job that I love as much as you love yours

  7. I start nursing school in the fall and have gotten a lot of negative feedback from nurses I work with who are really miserable as a nurse. Some are very encouraging, but most have told me to turn around now while I have the chance. Even the ones that say they like nursing usually only like it for the schedule flexibility and the money they make. I am just wondering if there is anyone out there that absolutely loves nursing and loves their job? I don't plan on changing my path...I guess I am just looking for some positive reinforcement that I am making the right decision and that there are actually nurses out there than truly enjoy what they do. Thanks in advance!

    No way! It’s like I am living your life did you work as a dietitian too before becoming a nurse? I have been trying to find a dietitian transitioned to nurse to get their take but most end up going to PA route rather than nursing.

    Thoughts on vegetarian/ vegan diet

    Hi, I am a registered dietitian (working my way into nursing school) and it is against our code of ethics to provide specialized dietary information without holding RD credentials. It is ok to give general, healthful information like eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day, choose lean proteins, etc. But giving heart health diet advice to a cardiac patient or telling a patient to go vegan is definitely specialized dietary advice that should only come from a dietitian. I used to have patients tell me that their nurse told them do the ketogenic diet or do a juice cleanse, etc and this was very frustrating because nurses usually held higher power over us dietitians, but did not always have correct information to give. Anyways, if nurses and other healthcare workers were as well versed as RDs in nutrition, then dietitians would be out of a job

    I know plenty of new grad nurses and none of them had difficulty finding jobs after school. Most of them had job offers before they even graduated. I think it all depends on where you live.

    Hello! I am actually in your exact same position and am planning to take out private loans on top of the federal loans I've already been given. I have also seen many posts on discouraging against student loans. I am debt free from my first bachelor's degree and 30 years old, so yes, taking out loans is scary for me too. But if you are diligent to pay them off after school (stay with your parents after school, work overtime/holidays/weekends, etc.) you can create a plan to pay the loans off in a short period. I recommend subscribing to Dave Ramsey for help with creating a plan I am hoping to work PRN once a week, but I won't really know how that will work out until I start the program in the fall. I am not letting the cost or debt scare me because the main reason I am switching to nursing is for better pay/career opportunities and I am sure I will be much happier in the long run. Good luck!

    That’s odd. Was it from 404-413-1200? That is so suspenseful! When I got taken off wait list they called around noon then did not send the email packet until a little after 5pm so who knows!

    Yes, I hope there are more spots to open up for you guys! Thank you so much! I have a 3.58 GPA/3.75 Science GPA, bachelor's degree in nutrition, 92 TEAS, have been volunteering for hospice for 10 years and been working in healthcare for about 7 years...the last 4 years with direct patient care (I'm a registered dietitian). I'm proof that there's still hope if your GPA isn't perfect:) Good luck everyone!!
