I would like to go back to school for a degree in something specific (ex: nursing) and am in the process of figuring out for what. I'm scared of entering a nursing program and then being in over my head! Also, is there a type of nurse you can become that does not deal with super intense situations? All I can picture is an ER nurse that is constantly having to revive people. Are there nursing careers that are more low-key?
