How can I tell my parents that I do not want a career in the medical field?

Updated Viewed 409 times

I am Nigerian and all I have ever heard from my mom is that I should be a BSN or pharmacy. To please her, and to avoid conflict, I enrolled in college for nursing. I was unhappy. It took a while for me to gather my courage and change my major to biology. I did not inform them of the change so when they found out, they were very upset and are still upset. I don't know how to tell them that nursing is not where I see myself in the future. I may be in college a bit longer than others, but I am now very happy with my choice. #biology #counselor #parent-communication

I think you need to explain to them the advantages of your new career. Try to convince them that it is as good or better than nursing.
