I am a first year nursing student in Canada. I started this September and I am in my first semester. I’ve done well so far in all my exams, tests, quizzes, and assignments. I chose nursing because i thought it was a good career that helps people when they are really sick, and the job security security was also appealing at the time I applied for university. My main problem is, how do you know if you like something or hate something. I’m not entirely sure I like nursing because I don’t seem to have as much interest in nursing as the other students. but i am not entirely sure I hate nursing either because i do enjoy some classes. Maybe I’ve lost some motivation. I’ve also considered getting a business degree if my clinicals don’t turn out well (i am terribble or I don’t like it)
I would like some advice of what to do and how to know if you like a career or not because at this point I am totally unsure. My parents will be upset if I leave nursing, but they will support me in whatever I do. I just don’t want to disappoint them. Managing a hotel or casino seems like something i would like to do if i got my business degree.
I don’t want to rush things and regret decisions, but I need to come up with a flexible plan to know where I am heading in life.
