I am so glad to have found this blog! This May I will be finishing my BS in Environmental Science and have known for the past year that it is not my calling. I worked previously as a dental assistant and was considering going into nursing but let others talk me out of it before applying to my current undergrad major. Now, I know that you have to listen to your heart and not what others tell you when they are trying to detour you from what you feel you are really meant to do. I miss working with patients all day and being busy. I do not like field work and sometimes wish the trees would talk back and at least tell me "thank you" for helping conserve them. In the environmental field, it is diverse and you don't really have to sit at a desk all day. But, it requires lab work, intensive research, and hardly any human interaction. Time goes by really slow while working in the field or lab. So, with this being said, next fall I will be starting my pre-req's for, hopefully, acceptance into an accelerated BSN program. Has anyone finished a program like this? It takes four semester but it consists of two summers, fall, and spring semester. Roughly a year to finish. I am not sure what nursing field I would like to work in yet. Does anyone have a suggestion of how to figure this out? Thanks in advance for any advice!!
