Hi, I am a 30 years old trying to get into nursing school. I am currently taking prereqs at local community college.
The more and more I research about nursing there is so much negativity forums and articles about nursing.
- patients treat you crap
- management is terrible
- undervalued, underpaid, etc..
I am currently in a totally different field, but I hate my job..and I don't see any future career in this field..
I was always interested in medical field and specifically primary care or anesthesiology and at 30 years old decided to change my field to nursing. my goal was to work as a nurse and purse my career further as NP, PA or CRNA.
I've done some research and found out that NP, PA or CRNA will not be in demand in around 10 years and that is taking away my hope as well...
I feel so devastated whenever I read about these negativity side of nursing.
I have so much fear of maybe not getting accepted to nursing school, failing my NCLEX-RN, not being able to get a job as a nurse.
am I overthinking myself? Do you think it is a mistake for me to purse a nursing career? 😞 please share your thoughts
