  • I say switch majors and do what you really want. If your heart is not in nursing you shouldn't be doing it. It's long hours and sometimes not very rewarding and you have to be doing it for the right reasons. Good Luck

  • You should finish what you started and then you can go back and do something else later.

  • Finish the nursing. And while going to school for marine bio you could work as a nurse part time to bring in some money.

  • I would set a goal for yourself to be able to do what you really want to do, even if it means working part time and schooling part time until you can reach your goal.
    I think its worth it to be in a career where you will really feel fulfilled

  • finish the nursing, there are course in there that I'm sure you'll need toward your dream job.

    besides it's good money until you get through with what you'll need for your dream job.

  • I would finish what I had started if i was close then use that job to go back and work my way towards my dream job. alot of fields can be combined in surprising ways. Like children thinking about teaching well do school nurse for awhile you can be around the kids and see how you like being back at and working at a school. Talk to people in both fields and see how they would encorporate both into thier lives. But in the end if you dont love what you do it is just a job and not a passion.

  • If you enjoyed nursing and and only quit because you found something you liked more, I say finish the nursing and work part time there while getting the marine bio degree. If you quit nursing because you didn't like it anymore, don't go back into it just because you are almost done. Stick with marine bio if you don't enjoy nursing.
