major for interests in both nursing and international affairs/studies
I am a rising high school senior and I am applying to colleges now. I am very interested in either becoming a nurse practitioner/educator or a diplomat because I really enjoy helping others through providing care and I love learning about new cultures and having a worldly awareness. As a nurse practitioner, I would like to work with Doctors Without Borders, the Peace Corps, or open my own practice. but with these two vastly different interests, I'm not sure how I will be able to decide on a major. do these two areas relate to each other in any way? would it make sense to double major in both nursing and international relations? or would it make more sense for me to apply as undecided? I'm not sure which career path is the right one for me and I want to explore both areas but I don't want to waste time and money in college. if anyone has experience in either or both fields, could you please help? thank you so much.6 replies
