Well, I've gotten to the point (79 credits into my Undeclared Bachelors, :x) that I realllllllly need to declare a major and stick with it. Family, friends, and the occasional random person all recommend that I get into Nursing. I hear great things about the pay, flexibility, benefits, etc. Then I hear conflicting horror stories about the working conditions, nurses are very overworked, bad management, high stress and burnout, etc. I also have to complete 78 more credits to graduate with this degre, ughhh. Then there is the English BA option that I've given myself. I think that a BA in English is pretty versatile, and can be used in a variety of different occupations. (And I'll graduate in just about 40 or so more credits) I was thinking about getting into Public Relations, Event Planning, or possibly Teaching. But I also want to be realistic. I don't want to be eating ramen noodles for dinner every night because I was too turned off about being a nurse without giving it a try. I just need a little help. I am totally confused, and I really don't have the time for it! I understand the economy isn't in the greatest state, and from what I understand, most professions are affected by it (yes, even Nursing). So, the economy aside, what advice does anyone have for me in regards to making this decision? Does anyone have any input regarding Nursing?
