Jared’s Answer

That is exactly what brought me to the nursing field. I originally wanted to be an engineer, then majored in marketing my freshman year of college, then realized i'd hate a desk job. I would definitely say speak to anyone in your family or family friends who are nurses/physicians. DEFINITELY shadow these professions. Realize that the first couple times you shadow you're not going to have any idea what is going on but it gives you an idea of the flow, pace, and environment. It also gives you an idea of what it is like interacting with patients. I would also speak to nursing/medical/physician assistant/dental schools in your area that you would be interested in attending and that way you can keep your name in their mind and you get some good questions answered about nursing education. Just know that going into any healthcare field is very hard work and time consuming but they are great jobs and you can go pretty much anywhere because they are in such high demand. Let me know if you have any other questions!
