Should I have done Biomed?Watch
I have often thought maybe swapping courses to paramedic but I am in second year of nursing and I think that a reason I have been more confused lately is because I didn't enjoy my main placement. I think nursing has a lot of great options and a varieties of specialities, however, I HATED working on the wards, other places i've been seem to interest me, district nursing, A&E, doctors surgeries, walk in centres and other urgent care departments. I have even been out with paramedics and loved it, just the thought of having to work on a ward makes me want to quit and leave and never look back. I also hear lots of other student nurses saying how much they love it but I just don't feel this way, not when I'm doing ward work anyway.
So, should I be doing Biomed?! Because I am quite academic and I am interested in things like pathology and pathophysiology, looking at the study of disease, diagnosis and about how drugs work etc. I think that looking at things like cancer cells and endocrine diseases as well as the mechanism of hormones/neurotransmitters is fascinating. I also enjoy neurology and neurosciences. I've never really known if I'd like to work in a lab but nothing can be as bad as constant ward work.
SORRY FOR THIS ESSAY ( hope people will bother to read it as i require a lot of advice as my brain is scrambled. )
