I guess overall, I feel like it's for me, but soooo not for some of the others who want to do it. Although I don't mind the job I do now, which includes a huge amount of excrement and bodily fluids... I am extremely mathematically and scientifically inclined, while I find that the majority of those in nursing school are not (at least not math - biology, yes). I am also a guy, and work with exactly zero male coworkers where I am now - I get along alright, but I picture life being better having other guys around again, in the OR.
Nice way to boost your ego!
