    When people suddenly want to be a nurse when you get in? Since getting my place (3rd attempt may I add) 5....yes 5! People I know have applied literally because I have. They never had an interest before and it just irritates me. 1 girl hasn't got a single experience in care but yet she wants to be a nurse. Sorry for my rant I just think why?!

    Why? Lol. I start nursing soon and a lot of "associates" have literally dropped everything and applied for nursing. They had no intention before I got in

    I don't really understand why you are annoyed. It's obvious that you have inspired these people to make nursing their new career interest. Why would this be a bad thing? Nursing is a great profession and if you believe that they are applying but not suitable then I guess they will find that out themselves.

    I agree with the previous poster. When I applied to do nursing it peeked people's interest and other people applied too. Not everyone got a place but some of them are now trained nurses who work in different specialities. I don't think this is a bad thing, and if it's just a fad because they don't know what to do with their lives then they will most likely drop out in their first year.
