My sister is trying to convince me to become a nurse like her

No way can i do that. I'm too dumb and i get mad too easily with people

I'd bet money you're smarter than you think you are, but nursing absolutely takes a certain kind of person. I can't do it; maybe you can. All I can say is, infinite patience is a requirement for sanity.

@Graylight i don't think im the right fit personally

@scabs Knowing that is just as valuable as wanting to follow something. Maybe EMT work. Or maybe you listen to your heart and walk your path. That's your true calling.
With all due respect, you shouldn’t be picky. And you’d sure make more working in fast food or as a dishwasher. And who knows? Maybe you’ll be good at it and actually enjoy it.

@Ducky it takes patience and you have to be nice to people no matter what and i have a hard time watching my mouth and being sassy. Besides it's for the smart people and the young not some old bag like me
@scabs There are plenty of older nurses out there and regardless, it’s still worth a try.

Yeah,that does not seem like a good combination for a nurse,then you need money for schooling ????

@Ramrod exactly i have no money for schooling of any type

What about half way? Carers are in big demand in most countries and often good perks with the job too.

@meggie NEVER do something because it pays well. You'll be miserable unless you love the work and there's little work harder than nursing.
