    What's your dream career?
    I really want to be a Mental Health Nurse... I'm applying to go back to university as we speak!

    I forgot how much 'fun' UCAS was. :mad2:

    That sounds like a good career, it was one I was considering myself once upon a time I've heard it's really rewarding. What course did you take at sixth form/college in order to try and go into mental health nursing? I kinda get what you mean about UCAS, I've only had to apply to sixth form through UCAS but I found it pretty annoying.

    I take it you've changed your mind, then? What career path takes your fancy?

    I took a BTEC in Applied Science when I was at college and I have a degree in Psychology and English Language... I graduate Friday! It's only since I've graduated that I decided to take the plunge and change direction. Becoming a RMN is an unfulfilled career ambition of mine.

    Yeah, I watched a program on different types of nursing and realised mental health nursing wasn't for me. I know that since I want to work in a health related area I will have to deal with death and shocking stories, but the job looked a little too upsetting for me, I felt so bad for all the patients. I think I'd be cuddling them better rather than giving them their medication haha I'm thinking of midwifery at the moment, or maybe a nutritionist or counsellor.

    Ohh, congrats on graduating! Was it hard to decide to change career paths? I'm one of those people that always worries that I might one day change my mind haha!

    I spent two hours filling out job applications this morning, only to get an e-mail back telling me the vacancies 'no longer existed'... so, I thought, 'I'll play a game' and it turns out it's got a mahoosive patch... pls interwebs, speed up.

    Aye, I can see why it wouldn't be suited to everyone as a career path, to be honest. Still, whichever direction you decide to go, I wish you the best of luck with your applications and getting the career you want; I'm sure you'll do great. :grin:

    Actually, it took me about a year to decide that I was gonna go ahead and do this after I graduated, so it was pretty hard. I kind of felt like it was 'admitting I'd wasted four years' doing my degree. Now though, I appreciate the skills my degree will have given me and hope I can put 'em to good use in my training.

    Aw thanks, good luck to you too!

    Ah I see what you mean there, I think I'd probably feel the same. But as long as you enjoyed doing your degree and it's given you skills that you didn't have before then I'd be glad that I did it! Just think, you'll have more skills than applicants that have come straight from A-Levels into mental health nursing

    I kept getting an error too... EUW, pleaaaase, stahp! :rant:

    I'm level thirty, but I've kinda stopped playing normals and ranked games (provisional)... I'm taking a break 'cause there's only so much: 'omg n00b cancer go uninstall' I can take in any one go! So, it's all ARAM and Dominion at the moment.

    MID OR FEED! Lol, JK. I prefer mid or ADC, though.
