I graduated high school six years ago, and I have neither finished college or received a degree. I have been trying to earn a degree in the medical field for almost 4 years now. After high school, I started college and took courses to be accepted into a nursing program. After submitting my application, I wasn’t accepted the first time. I sat out for a year, and after reapplying, I was finally accepted. I only lasted one semester and was dismissed for poor grades.
I realized nursing was too difficult for me. I started to research other careers in Healthcare and discovered occupational therapy. After research, I decided to become an occupational assistant because only an associate’s degree is excepted. Once getting a AA, I would go on for occupational therapy. I found a technical college that offered it, and after submitting all my credits, I was accepted. I made it up until this past month and was dismissed. I was almost done. My grades were mostly A’s and B’s for several terms. I failed a challenging course and was dropped. As of now, I am devastated and am ready to throw in the towel. I really want to get into a career working in the medical field, but I don’t know how to get past the school hump. Are there easier careers where the school is easier?
