afraid of failure……Troubled Nursing Student

I am a student at a prestigous nursing school working on my BSN. I have 3 more semesters to go until I graduate. The only problem is that I hate it so much! With every ounce of my being I hate nursing school. It makes me feel horrible every time I work clinical.

Last, semester I skipped over 50% of the classes b/c I was just to emotionally upset. It made me depressed and physically sick. The stress and drepression I feel are causing an eating disorder. I do not want to be a nurse. Reading everyone’s comments has made me feel like I am not crazy.

My family thinks I am crazy for wanting to quit and tells me I am being foolish. They are putting so much pressure on me to finish…the thought of going back to that school makes me sick…school starts again in 5 days. I don’t know what to do…if I had $ to do something else, I would leave in a second. If anyone has any advice, I would appreciate it! I thought nursing would make me feel fulfilled, but it has done the opposite. I feel empty and used. I feel like I am working hard for no reason…I am not happy at all… If I had my way, I would go into herbology and natural medicine…or become a yoga instructor. Those things make me happy. I wish I didn’t care what other people thought about my decisions, but I still don’t want my family to think I am a failure.
