I considered becoming a kindergarten/preschool teacher vs. nursing, too. I guess the reason was because my kindergarten teacher made such a positive impression on me (I still remember her, some classmates, and things we did (she was pregnant and every day she would measure her belly to show us how fast her little baby was growing; I, as a 6ish year old, loved that because I was so curious. Kids that age are curious about everything and I'm glad she embraced that)) that I wanted to do the same. Deep down, though, I knew teaching wasn't for me and that nursing was the only thing that would make me happy. Since around that young age, I've always been drawn to the medical field. I get excited about nursing. It's my niche. It's where my heart belongs. I'm not a nurse yet, but when I get licensed, I want to work in the labor and delivery unit. Babies are my thing lol. Nothing makes my heart melt more than babies. I'm thinking that when I have kids of my own, I (hopefully) won't be that paranoid mom that takes her babies to the pediatrician for everything lmao. I'll be able to remain nonchalant and know what to do for them as their personal nurse for when they hurt themselves, get sick, whatever. Nursing is such an invaluable skill to have.
So, I suggest what everyone else has and just go where your heart leads because at the end of the day, are you going to be worried about your potential or your happiness? And you know, you're young yet, try one and if you find it isn't what you thought it would be or you're not content, try the other. You've got plenty of time.
