Business or Pediatric Nursing Major?

I am starting college soon and am having difficulty choosing between two of my passions: pediatric nursing and business. I took so many business classes in high school that I had to take a test because I was considered concentrated in business. Business always comes easy to me. On the other hand, I love to help people and have a passion for children. Helping sick children heal and become better is something I m interested in. I know nursing school is challenging, but I m willing to work hard. My goals is job stability, decent salary ($60,000 at least) and when I have my own children, I must have time to spend with them. Thank you for answering!

In terms of employment, nursing has more options but will definitely be taxing in terms of time. Some work beyond 40 hours per week. Business on the other hand is very general and is applicable for various jobs; however, there are many business graduates who find it hard to find a job.

Hi there, congrats on almost finishing high school. Business and nursing are two very different majors to choose from. I would recommend to take a few science classes and see how you like them. After all, to earn a degree in nursing, you will need to complete tons of physics, chemistry, biology, physiology, pathology, etc. If you find yourself enjoying those courses, then nursing is definitely the way to go. As a nurse, you will have plenty of freedom to choose your hours, whether you like to work full time or part time, and the pay is very good. However, if you are struggling in those courses, you can always choose business as your major. You can volunteer with church or non profit organizations to help people on the side to satisfy your loving desire, and still make a good living. Best of luck!
