1. I used to be so pissed that I was going to have to pay a lot of extra money in student loans for my accounting degree. I had all my pre-reqs done plus the first year in the College of Business. When I switched to nursing, I had to take a year of pre-reqs before I could apply to the Nursing Program.
2. Unlike accounting, I can use my nursing experience for the rest of my life. I mean, everyone uses basic accounting skills in their life, but not everyone understands medical problems.
3. I have a goal to look forward to. I can stop feeling guilty about "wasting time".
I am sure there are more positives, but my mind is very full right now.
