NICU Nurse Manager at Baptist Memorial Hospital for Women
I had the same question when I graduated high school and went to college. I studied chemical engineering for a year in college because I thought I liked it- but then decided on nursing because my mother had been sick and in the hospital. I talked to some nurses and decided that was what interested me- I wanted to feel that I had helped people. I have been a nurse now for 30 years and haven't regretted that decision. I think sometimes you need to just start out in something, but be willing to change your mind when you get into it- It's a big decision because you want to be happy in your work-- since most of us need to work for such a long portion of our lives!
My oldest son actually liked Chemistry and thought he wanted to do that- when he had been in college for 2 years he switched to Economics! He is very happy with his decision. Best of luck to you Aurora- Maybe choose your favorite classes and go from there. Teresa
