Can you advise this potential student nurse?
“I currently work as a medical secretary. I earn a decent wage and I work regular, predictable hours.
“But recently I’ve been thinking that maybe I should give all that up and retrain as a nurse. I love the idea of being able to help people when they need it most.
“But I keep asking myself: is it worth throwing away a good career on what could be just a whim?
“Some of the things I’ve read about the profession - pay freezes etc. - and some of the comments left by NT readers have scared me off a bit, but I think it’s still something I want to do.
“Maybe I’m asking a biased audience but if you were in my position, would you do it?”
