    chemo sounds nice...it would be sad to see a friend die, though...

    Nearly all of my professors have told me this. They started to work 'just for a little while', and before you know it you feel needed (because you are), and you get so much experience (Which is awesome) and you move up the ranks (which gets you more money and better shifts), and then you realize 3-5 years have gone by without ever pushing your career where you originally intended for it to go.

    It really isn't for everyone. I'm doing my clinical rotations on the floor where the cancer is either close to metastasizing or it's already terminal. Some of the girls in my group are scared to interact with the patients for the sheer aspect of getting to know them--only to realize in their records that they have a death sentence and aren't lasting long.

    One guy was suppose to get married 2 weeks before he had a cancer diagnosis and it was a bad diagnosis. It really put a damper on the girl who had the patient.

    @Magic Qwan

    You're gonna hate it dude. You a core head type and it won't allow you to sit and analyze. Also, it's very fast paced, and you already seem like a nervous person to me, so I think it will make you even more nervous and stress you out. Pick another career dude.

    Initially yes. Absolutely. But, nursing has lots of other implications, and you could have a slow paced setting with the right job. It really is viable.. You can take on a lot of careers with the education you get from it. It's not as specific as, say, a radiologist.

    True. You can do many things with a nursing degree. However, if he is actually doing to specifically become a nurse, I think it would be a poor choice for him.

    Ok, here are some pros and cons about the nursing field. I am not a nurse, but my mother and sister are both nurses.

    Pros:
    - Good pay
    - its pretty in demand
    - You can be as versatile as you want. For example, say you want to work with elderly, you can work in nursing homes. Want something really fast paced? go working in the ER. Want something a little slower? Work for a Doctor in his office or in a Clinic. Like Mental Health ? Work with psych patients. Wanna be more a coordinator of services? Become a medical case manager. There is a great deal of specialization you can do with nursing, so you can easily find what you like to do best in nursing school.
    - It can be rewarding
    - working with a wide range of people

    Cons:
    - Patients can be a real pain
    - Really long hours
    - gotta have thick skin
    - Dealing with narcissistic doctors and administrators ( There are plenty of good doctors and admins though)
    - Co workers can be gossipy and annyoing
