I am not a RN yet, I graduate next month, so I will answer your questions the best I can. I have worked in many hospitals doing my clinicals plus 96 hours of preceptorship and I love the med-surg floor. Total I have went to school for 3 years and as for the school part NO, I would not do it again LOL, it is very hard,stressful and never ending. I also have 3 children and a hubby plus all the mom and wife stuff to do. This journey has been amazing but very stressful. Test tomorrow so I am so ready for tomorrow to be over. Nothing but finals left. If you love taking care of people, teaching and counseling and can handle death because yes sometimes patients will die then nursing might be a good fit for you. How are you with blood, vomit, fecal matter and horrid smells LOL..
