Nursing, is it the way to go?
I started out in nursing and did a little bit of placement and did not enjoy it. My clinical instructor was truly mean and my patient hated nurses and peed on me. I switched my major.

I'm just afraid I'll end up working with many people who despise their job and are miserable in the field. I love working with people. Did I just need a few years to grow up and develop thicker skin? I am also a little nervous about giving people medications, as people have died in the past because of nurses giving wrong doses.
