    Is it worth it to get a bachelors in nursing?

    I'm honestly reading a lot of mixed opinions on it, although i find a lot of people online are claiming it's becoming harder and harder to find a job, pay is mediocre and apparently nurses now do a lot more work than they used to.

    I wanted to be a doctor, but i honestly can't make it through med school + residency and i don't personally think it's worth it. However i still wanted to do something in the medical field that only needs 4-6 years of education or so.

    Can't decide if i should go ahead and declare my major next year in nursing..

    Theres tons of jobs in nursing. Every nurse that graduated that I know had a job within a month of passing their boards. Pay is decent starting and theres a lot of room to grow--nurse admins, NPs, CRNAs, etc. Nurses run most hospitals, control the OR.

    What you need to find out if is its something you want to do. Theres many other routes in healthcare that are different than nursing. Shadow a few and see what you enjoy the most.

    My ex girlfriend just finished her bachelors in nursing and had her job lined up like 6 months before she graduated. I actually think literally everyone in her class did too.

    I think she makes a lot of money as well but not sure

    Solid choice m8 with lots of options and career paths. So many different job types to get when you have the letters behind the name, way more than you'd think. I'm almost at the top of my pay grade as a lower level supervisor, OT is everywhere and I'll probably make 140-150k this year working on average around 47 hrs/week with 6 weeks vacation. Grossed 14,700 so far this year and many perks to the job. ddddooooooo it

    I make between 80-90 bucks/hr between my two per diem jobs where I can pick up as many or little shifts as I want. Last year cleared 100k on just one of my jobs working on average 22 hrs a week.

    Think you have an RN confused with a CNA...

    You do realize how useless a bio degree is if you don't get into a grad program right? Not to mention biology is much more dense science wise. If you aren't into science, good luck not wanting to stab your eye out. This is coming from a bio major (love it though).
