I am currently a freshman majoring in nursing. Although I know I would make a good nurse and wanted to work in the ER, I am starting to change my mind. I am not a people person and do not want to talk to people all day. I've been looking into engineering and am interested in Biomedical Engineering, but would probably major in electrical or civil engineering because biomedical engineering is fairly new and not many companies are looking to hire them. The reason I want to switch to engineering is because I love math and there are really no math courses in nursing. Also, I like figuring out how things work and I enjoyed physics in high school. I am debating whether I should change my major or not. If I do switch to engineering, I should transfer schools so that I am closer to home and not paying so much money. Also, I went to the school I am at now because they have such a good nursing program. Should I transfer closer to home in Chicago for sophomore year and study engineering? If I transfer, I will also probably be behind on courses.
Any input would be great!
