Some might remember me whinging about hating my job.
Well I had a revelation and realised life is to short to spend the majority of my life loathing my days.
I looked into other jobs I was qualified for and realised I am just going to keep going from one crap job to another and whats the point.
So I have decided to go back to study. I know it will be a hard time with one full time salary coming in (I will hopefully get a little something of centrelink and still work part time as much as I can) But I know for certain this is what I want to do.
Well it has turned out to be perfect timing as enrolments for semester 2 at tafe are open.
This left me with deciding what the heck I wanted to study!
My first thought and choice was to become a vet nurse.. Looking more into it the job prospects didnt look great and the one course they have here in adelaide was already closed for applications- so that went out the window.
This left me thinking about what exactly I wanted in a job, and came to the following conclusions:
-I didnt want a 9-5 job
-I didnt want to stare at a computer and be on my butt all day everyday
-I wanted a job where each day was different and a challenge
-I wanted a job where I felt like I was actually doing something worthwhile and not kissing butt all day long.
-wanted a career with lots of different avenues so if I hate one direction I can try another
-Wanted a career with very good job security and where positions werent too rare.
All this led me to nursing!
So now I have applied for diploma of enrolled nursing, once I finish that I will see what I want to do- maybe go to uni and become registered nurse or something like that.
All I have to do now is take a test that establishes my competence as I didnt finish year 12. Am very nervous I have no idea how I will go.
Then if I go decent get accpeted. Apparently this course is hard to get into with lots of compition so who knows. Have a long wait though- 22 June!
Anyway sorry for the long post but am wondering if anyone in here is a nurse that could give me any warnings against or advise or anything like that?
Even non nurses- do you think this is a good idea?
thanks for reading my current life plan
