I am almost in the same situation as you. I graduated in 2008 and worked as auditor for the last 2 years at a large accounting firm. Within the first few months of working I realized that accounting was not my true passion, but I stuck with it for almost two years. I've always wanted to do nursing and finally decided to go back to school. Today was my last day at work:yeah:...and I start classes for my CNA certification next week.
I decided to take the long route and get my BSN. I will be working as a patient care tech while in school as a form of income and to gain experience in the hospital setting.
My friends and family have been really supportive of my decision. The hardest part was leaving my current job for the "unknown", but now that I've done it I feel so free. I know it's gonna be a hard journey, but I am ready for the challenge.
Good luck to you!
