Life after Nursing

11:58 AM

*alarm clock rings* Whoa! It's 6:30 in the morning. "Sh*t, I am late for my class!" I scrambled out of my bed and experienced a mini-heart attack. Until reality hits me, I AM ALREADY A GRADUATE.

That is what I felt 2 years ago. Now, I am facing my computer, unemployed with various call center experience. Yes, I am unemployed. Frankly, I can just apply to any contact centers and be hired. But I won't. I want something different. Something that is beyond taking calls and assisting overly-dependent Americans. I want to be free.

I am considering a lot of options. from doing typing jobs, receiving guests in a hotel to ESL jobs. Oh God, I am still not sure. 

A dear friend once asked me if I am a Registered Nurse, I replied, with conviction, "No, and that won't happen" He said, "Why not? If I were you, I would pursue my nursing career even though there are a lot of nurses now.." I eagerly replied, "For what? For me to be stuck in a hospital and suffer a below-minimum wage?" He simply answered, " No, for self-fulfillment." I was struck and he evidently caught me off-guard. .

Self-fulfillment? I guess he's right. No matter how I apply for different jobs, my nursing background will still haunt me. Sometimes, I feel that something is not right. Something unfinished is troubling me. He is right. I need to finish what I've started. I need to get back on track I need to become a Registered Nurse.

Though, I'm still not 100% convinced that I need to work as a nurse. Now, I just want to become registered and from there we'll see.
