So I’ve spent the last 2 1/2 years completing my pre reqs for the nursing program. I’ve been a CNA for over 7 years. I worked so hard to get accepted and once I got the acceptance letter I was more bummed than I was excited. I don’t know why. I’m just so confused. I thought this is what I wanted for so long, maybe because I’ve been told this is what I should do by my family members. I would love to get a degree in psychology or social work. The thing is, a nursing degree could provide a higher income in a shorter amount of time. I have a child and am a single parent. I am so torn. Should I start the program this fall and see how I like it? I don’t want to regret leaving this opportunity, but then again I don’t want to regret not going after what I really want. I can’t see myself being a nurse, maybe because I don’t feel like I’m cut out for the job. If anyone has an advice or has gone through the same thing please feel free to comment. Thank you for reading this!
