Just recently, I decided that I would aim towards becoming a nurse, particularly a pediatric nurse. Mind you, I'm still in high school and have about a year left, but I am applying to a high school for nursing and beginning to look for financial aid and such. The reason I want to become a nurse is to be able to help people and help them get better. But there's one problem- I hate needles! They scare me! And I cannot deal with very tragic and grotesque things... such as a head being split open. I was wondering if these things will hold me back once I begin nursing school? Will the fears go away? I am really set on becoming a nurse, and don't want these things to hold me back.
