Im looking at updating my AIN cert and jumping into an enrolled nursing or applying for RN nursing. Ideally id love to work in oncology or palliative care.
The 3 years at uni scares me as well as the fact I really struggle with academic writing (am halfway thru a degree now and have totally lost interest in all subjects except those medically related so i know what standard uni expects and I am awful at it).
Rn also worries me in that I would have to study externally and i worry about on campus components (cost of flights/accommodation). How often are these held and where do you go (for those who chose this path).
RN does appeal to me over an EN though as I would love to specialise and having worked in aged care before I know I would prefer hospital work (and I know a lot of en's end up in aged care).
Thanks for any advice
