Hello. For over 2 years I had an idea to do nursing as a career path, although I am undecided between nursing sector or dental sector. I am more or less leaning towards dentistry but still unsure. Currently studying health and social care at college. Anyone have any ideas?:tsr:

They are two very different options. With being a dentist, you only have to worry about the person's teeth and gums. If you become a nurse, you are dealing with their emotional health as well as their physical health. If you want to help people, I think you might get more satisfaction from going into nursing.

Have you considered job shadowing at a dental office? Try to get an internship in a hospital to see if nursing is for you (or if you like working in a hospital). You could also find dentists and nurses to interview about their job.

Thank you very much for replying to this post.i had kind of given up that anyone would help. UPDATE: I am currently on placement in a local minor hospital. My previous placement was at a care home. Both I liked but still unsure. I had met with a ex dentist and she gave me a name of the manager. Im stuck for time to write to him. But im hoping to get it done sooner rather than later. I still would like someone to help make a decision as it is close to applications end dates.

Honestly nursing is a very hard job and it may come with depression with seeing people in a unstable place dentistry path is very good but if you have a passion for nursing and it’s make you happy then it’s good just giving you advice being in a dentist environment is very reserve
