My gosh, there is so much more to nursing than science classes and clinical rotations. If a 16 year old came into my hospital room and started asking me my medical history, including my sexual history and use of substances just for example, I wouldn't know whether to laugh or be upset. Some nurses in their 20s and 30s have a tough time with patients, let alone teens. My message is: don't rush things. She has plenty of time. Plenty of time to explore school, healthcare, nursing and everything else.
