    My indecisiveness and change of mind has led me to consider rejecting my offer for Adult nursing.
    The thing is im not even sure if I want to go to such course, because i don't have any sort of experience, its a very stressful job and i don't want to "live to work". I've been negative comments about the course and profession as a whole.

    So I 've thought about going to college for 2 more years with the right subjects choice and then get into another course...

    Would it be better for me to take the course and see how it goes or start a fresh with a stronger base?

    P.s: I'm starting nursing course in April 2017, so i would have gap year..
    Any advice welcome!

    From someone who dropped out of a nursing course after 6 months, i would seriously suggest getting some work experience before you make a decision what to do about your offer.

    I'm already trying to do so I've contacted several hospitals to volunteer there and I'm waiting for their response. But when i look at myself in the future, I don't see myself with this career forever, I only see it as temporary way of making a living.

    If you dont see it as something to do forever, i would at least defer your place if not reject the offer.
