I am currently in a nursing program, I just started on January 10th. I have never dreamed of being a nurse, and am still very unsure. I want to become a nurse because it pays well, has great benefits, and it is very secure. Now I know that noeone should go into a career for the money, but I believe that this is a large factor in most everyones mind. I am a good person and have a good heart. I have much compassion for people and I know that I will make just a fine and dandy nurse once im out of school. But, when im in class I often think, "Oh my gosh this is so much information & I have to work sooo hard for this, SOMETIMES I THINK, do I really want to put all this effort into something im not even sure I want to do? I ALOS THINK THAT LEARNING ABOUT NURSING IS NOT REALLY THAT INTERESTING. I am sort of a free spirited person but am a very professional person at the same time and truly appreciate proffessional jobs and workplaces. I have never foreseen myself working such a straight foward, serious job. I am 25 years old and have been working since I was 15. I realize how hard it is to find a stable, good paying job and know that when I become a nurse I will not have this issue. I have considered other fields in the medical world, but no other position pays as well and is as stable. Can anyone relate to how I am feeling? I am just not sure if I should become a nurse. Any advice would be much appreciated Thanks!
