Good afternnoon everyone! I am new to this group but I have a concern that I believe someone here may be able to provide a little insightful guidance:
So, I have a bachelors degree in psychology (BA). I went back to school to do something else as a job didnt work out for me out of undergrad and I wasnt sure of what to study on the graduate level. When I went back as a post-baccalaureate I finished my pre-nursing requirements in less than a year (some of my psyc classes transfered so it was the feasible option).
At this point, I couldnt decide if I wanted to go to nursing school or graduate school-for psyc. So, I waited and started doing some volunteer work that fell in my lap (at a free health clinic). I have taken the GRE once and did not make good enough scores at all!! So, I said maybe nursing is for me not grad...
NOW, everyone is seemingly pressuring me to go to Grad school or hurry up and get into some level of higher education. I understand that my time is limited but I do not know what to do. I came to the conclusion that I dont want to be a nurse so if i went into healthcare it would have to be a higher position but what?? I dont really want to be a doctor as i am not so sure that sort of schooling is for me...I wouldnt mind getting a PhD but I am having trouble with the GRE and that has to say something about my level of knowledge/reasoning skills. I am not so sure Im smart enough to not only get into grad but finish!
My question here is what should i do? I only want healthcare as a skill, I am not sure what I want to do with psychology (some sort of counceling or maybe even research in human sexuality-no idea really...). I like foreign language but im am only okay in Spanish (I have a minor but I am NOT fluent-could speak to live abroad but not confidently). I dont know of any other interests and I dont want to waste my time and money trying to do the wrong thing. I am stuck at full hesitation AGAIN! I need help on finding the right thing to go for...what do i do with my life???? I dont have more time to waste with a toddler no car, no stable home and no decent income!
Any suggestions are much appreciated and I thank you all for your input.
