Ill take being a joke as becoming a nursing when Im clearing in a starting wage of 21.50 ( note : my province pays the lowest ).







Ill be the joke when Im atleast doing something with my life.







Ill be the joke when Im am doing something I have wanted to do for years.







Ill be the joke when Im helping people whoms family couldnt be bothered to care for them themselves. ( Not all are in a hospital because of that, but the place I plan on working once Im done my course is a home for elderly and disabled children where some are there alone. No family visits etc )







Ill take career in a growing feild that is always in demand (in my area).







Yeah, Im a joke.

I used to be a Medical Assistant & Phlebotomy Technician.  I'm now pursuing a Bachelors in Nursing.   I've got to get my certified Nurse's Aid course completed before applying to the program.  

I'd much rather become an Optometrist, but there are no Optometry schools in Colorado and we just moved our family here 6 months ago, so we have no plans leaving here.

 I'm going to the University of Northern Colorado, it has one of the top nursing schools, which means it's highly competitive.  Hope I get into the R.N. program in 2014.

I don't think you are a joke. I am a registered nurse, OCN and I worked hard for my degree. Nursing school is tough but the field is rewarding and in some area pays great. I plan to replace a nurse in May who will be leaving after her baby is born. I worked there for almost 8 years before deciding to stay home with my kids. My youngest is in school now and I'm so happy to go back to my second home.

Congratulations, you get to be covered in pee and puke and exposed to potentially fatal infections for less than I made working in a grocery store.
