I’ve just started my second year of nursing. I have realised that it isn’t what I want out of career. I enjoy healthcare and learning a lot. That’s why I like the theory side of nursing more. I feel like I’d want to work in a non-patient facing role, but I also want to help people. I like the job prospects of biomedical science and the lab work interests me; I feel like the job prospects of biomed aligns more with who I am. I don’t want to work on the frontline the way nurses do. I know you can specialise within nursing, but it’s still nursing lol. And it can take some years to find your niche. Im not sure if I should continue the nursing course and graduate, as I do think it’ll look good on my CV. Or drop out and start biomed. I’d have to do a foundation year with biomed.
I’m just a bit confused lol. Any advice from anyone would be great, thanks!
