I did one year of nutrition & realized it doesn't fit me and the jobs are bad. I want to switch to nursing but it's to late in the season, spots are all taken up, so I have to apply for next year's season. Should I continue with my nutrition degree during 2nd year, or just take the year off, and get a job while applying to nursing and studying?

Also, I don't meet the math requirement for nursing, so I have to retake tests that come out late in applications and I don't know if I'll even pass. I hate my nutrition course though and it's not worth it considering the jobs it offers. Any thoughts? What would you do?

Well usually you only get 4 years funded by student loan. So I would suggest if you are adamant you don’t want to continue your current degree then dropping out would be a good option if you’re unable to fund your university fees yourself if you wanted to go back and do nursing! Possibly arrange a chat with a lecturer or careers advisor and go from there! Hope it all works out for you either way

It is not too late to apply, as many courses go into clearing. I would suggest talking to places you are interested in going to for nursing. But, If you continue on your course then it would be a good foundation to do the nursing degree. While it may not be a field you want to work in, academically it will help you in the nursing degree, and with elements of care and nutrition of patients. Nursing is highly competitive and having a degree will definitely help you. Also this gives you two years to get your maths done.
