Hi Krystal-  So many choices are out there in the medical field for you to pursue!   Nursing is not for everyone-  Have you thought about respiratory therapy?   radiology technician? physical therapy?  as well as pharmacy!

You might call a hospital close to you to find out if they have a shadow program and see if you can observe the work of one of these that might interest you-- better to find out a little about the subject before you invest in school!   Best of luck to you Krystal!

I mean I can't answer whether or not pharmacy is a good fit for you, but it's a possibility. Note there's separate schooling for pharamcy. You'd need to apply to a ACPE accredited Pharm.D program after undergrad, graduate from that degree program, and I think you need quite a bit* of internship experience specifically at a pharmacy too (which you can e.g. do during summers or whatever during your degree program).


My neighbors in my adjoining wall duplex are pharmacy students. The initial round of internships was apparently not great because it required driving a long ways.


I have no idea what the long term job prospects are though.



* quite a bit - looks like it varies by state, maybe up to like a half a year of fulltime employment as an intern
