So the last time I was on here I was working towards my pre-reqs for nursing at a community college. Well life happened. I got a full time job, had another baby and ended up in a 7 month MA program. I was skeptical from the start because I've heard how hard it was to find a job...well I let my friend and admissions talk me into it, and I started 3 weeks later. From the beginning I had doubts. The students thought they were basically going to be nurses and the instructors didn't make it any better. They kept saying we were going to take the nurses jobs, and we could do everything a nurse could do.....how could that be when i got half way through the program and we hadn't even started doing things an MA could do?? All of our work came from two books for the whole program. It was all very basic......basic math and english.....very basic anatomy. I was doing very well....but the cost, time (m-f 9-4) just made me not want to do it any more. I was not satisfied. I was tired of spelling tests and other random things to keep us busy. I thought it would be more hands on. And it just wasn't worth 12k. So here I am, back to square one. I thought it would be a quick way to enter the health care field. I still want to be a nurse so I guess I better pick back up on my pre-reqs. I just needed to vent. Ugh.
