    Nursing or Veterinary Nursing!

    I’m a bit stuck, I want (or wanted idk) to be a veterinary nurse but after being accepted onto the course 2 years running I have failed to find a placement. I got really close, volunteered at a practice one 2 days a week alongside work, but in the end they didn’t take me because I can’t drive and because I was worried about it being unpaid (a lot are paid)
    I feel really disheartened after working so hard for nothing and for so long, I can’t carry on just a part time job so I can volunteer. I’m starting to wonder if I should do nursing. I have a year to decide, as I’m going to learn to drive and get a job as a health care assistant.

    For nursing I’d have to do the degree and access course as I anticipated working with animals
    What are other pros and cons of nursing?
