I am still unsure about what I want to study in college, but my family is strongly encouraging me to become a nurse, should I just listen to them?

My grandparents, parents, and siblings all think I would be a great nurse but I am unsure that that's for me. My problem is I have no idea what is for me, so how can I know if they are wrong or right about that? #nursing #career-choice...
