I know this is way off the topic of our cancer, but figure I have a varied group of gals on these boards and possibly someone can pitch in to help.
My daughter, 21 yrs, is at college working on her business degree, emphasis in marketing. Been working this summer at a financial corp as an intern, but wondering if this is what she really wants. Great, as we figured one more year of college and she would graduate. Now the new thoughts of "what do I really want to do". We've tried to tell her DO WHAT YOU WANT, DIG DEEP DOWN INSIDE (we've heard ideas in past of law, teaching, to name a few), and now her thoughts are going to the nursing field -- her take -- I want to be rewarded at the end of the day, by helping others. As I remind her, you've only been at this internship for a whopping 2 weeks, how can you know the business world isn't what you want?
Now that she's looking into the nursing field, searching for any one who can chime in to give me their experiences. My concern, she's really not a grest science student, but excellent in math, plus with this new Obamacare coming soon, what will that do to the nursing field? Hearing so much about shortages of doctors and lower pay with our socialistic health care programs.
We want her to find her spot, but with me I didn't know until I really got out and worked.....took me a few years, but I found my true passion. At this point I want her to get her business degree in one more year, then step into the corp world and find her niche. But nursing, as this just popped up this week??
Appreciate any input you gals can provide. Thankfully we have only 1 child...gee!!
