Hi, I just completed my diploma in engineering field, but I just realised that Im still intetested in medic line. Biology is my fav subject as always, but since Ive got a better result in Physics, so then I proceed to study engineering. As my parents both are engineers, so I will have to be an engineer in my family, this sounds normal as everyone follow their parents footsteps. So I just went on to study without asking myself whether I like it or not.
After 2 years of struggling in diploma, Ive never think about to proceed my degree in that field. My parents said that if I wanna work in medic line, is either doc or pharmacy. Nurse is definitely not a choice for us. I would like to ask, whats the problem of choosing to become a nurse? Why theres so many pupil keep saying nursing is not a good job,which not hygiene at all, gottta work shift by shift, gonna clean up form time to time. As in my opinion, I doesnt care about what they say, I just wanna serve people, makes pupil happy, works that can saves lives in every minute. This is the job that I wanted.
Parents and cousins will say that Im just kidding, Im just wasting time and money to study it, not working in the field that Ive studied. But I thought that Im the one whos gonna proceed my future, live in my future myself, but not them. But if I proceed my degree in engineering, I will regret that I didn't make a choice just for myself, it will be more wasted if I continue to study.
What should I do? How can I convince my parents to change their mind and thoughts about nurse? Just because I will be the first nurse in my family so they dont have any reference for me. They just simply dont allow me to study that. Im so frustrated now that I have to make a decision to choose which field to go. Im ready to get scolded by them if I discuss this topic, is just few weeks time for me to decide. But what if Im wrong?
I went to school with my friends around, Im happy to be with. We discuss about engineering stuff, but Im the one whos the most quiet when it comes to this session. If someone just ask why I chose this path, my answer is always 'coz I didn't hate or like it, I just chose it.' for no reason. During festival celebrations, many of my relatives will be very busy body asking is my course tough, its obviously tough for me. When they heard the word ENGINEER, they will wowed. I was thinking, is engineering the best for you guys? Why?
I saw my cousins talked about their courses, like biotecs, biomedics, architec, etc. They shared their funs ands interest one by one with excitement. My turn, I will just said, erm... Engineer is like that, about leds, lights bla bla bla... No any excitement on me, this is the first time I realised that Im not that interested in my course. Ok next is, after school, I have no other minds to think about my course stuff, Im not curious about the news, the updates. Until my sis told me one thing, she said, hey, why dont you feel curious about your stuff, your future stuff. Shes studying software, she writes codes, and once the software run, she feel curious and excited about it. But I dont really have that kind of excitement when it comes to me.
Parents always tell me us to do business in futire, not just to be employed, they dont even ask about my opinion, just ask us to do what are the RIGHT things they thought of. How can I convince them about nursing?
