    With a degree in science and a number of years experience working in industry I decided to change gear and try my hand at nursing. I'm about halfway through my training and the realities of nursing and the demands of the role have left me doubting my decision to become a nurse. I'm not very engaged with the course and find the material and methods of assessment not very stimulating. Placements have been ok but when I see the qualified nurses I sometimes think I could not put myself through the stress and sacrifices they make. I'm losing the drive to stay on the course and if I do I'm wondering what can a degree in nursing get me outside of patient care. This experience has caused a worry and anxiety to bubble up in me as I feel concerned and stressed about the future and what I am going to do for work, for the next 35-40 years. I want to get out of bed in the morning feeling passionate about what I am doing and enjoying my life but right now I am completely lost and don't know what direction I am going in. Also, I'm not materialistic but I want to have a job that will have me financially comfortable but I think I will never manage to buy even a small house and stop renting with randomers.

    Anybody else experienced/experiencing a similar situation and how did you turn things around?
