Just like most college students, I am at a point right now where I have no idea what I "want to be when I grow up". For a little back ground- I enrolled in Nursing school last year (for no reason in particular, I'm interested in the health field and like helping people.. so perfect right?) and it's an Associates Degree program so I will be graduating this Spring. Long story short, these past 2 years have been miserable. I know that anybody who has gone through Nursing school has said the same thing, however it's usually worth it for them in the end. For me though, I think even after I graduate I'm not going to enjoy it; I don't necessarily enjoy the content or the clinicals. SO, that being said- I have absolutely no idea what to do now. As I mentioned before, I am interested in health care, and even more so helping people! Another important thing, is that I think I'm leaning more towards holistic health (acupuncture, reiki, etc.) than the typical health care. Any suggestions?? I will take any recommendations even if you're not sure if I'd enjoy them or not.
Some ideas I have had are working with animals to heal people, opening my own "wellness center" that would include things such as massage and acupuncture. I just really don't know... I hate to say it, but money is important and I have been told all along to not go into a job for the money, but to find something I enjoy doing and the money will come. I'm trying to stick to that but I just can't seem to find something I think that I will enjoy.
Thank you for any help in advance!!

Rosey answered Monday October 11 2010, 10:29 pm: Honey believe me, you are not alone! Many student nurses feel the same way you do. The ecomony we are in right now isn't helping matters any either. Many student nurses are unable to find employment. In fact many nursing graduates are unable to find work, RN's are needed but that is alot more schooling than the average two year program. The light at the end of the tunnel is the course requirements for the first two years of nursing are much in the same of many career paths. Associates degrees in science lead to many different avenues in the walks of education and professions, look into and you might discover that you dont need to take too many more classes to find a career you feel satisfied with.
