    So My diploma finishes in Jul and I'm sorta planning on doing further study in either Psychology or Nursing Mental Health ,Like I would Love to become a Health Psychologist. But Psychology is a cunt of a subject in the sense that it takes so long in order to become registered ,then there is the specialization part as well. Whereas Nursing mental health is a 4 year degree with guaranteed employment.icon_biggrin.gif


    Like I'm turning 19 this year (almost 2nd year at uni ),and my parent's aren't always going to be there to pay for my fees (which is a bit concerning if i continue to study Psychology). And I'm getting over university,like study study!!!!!icon_twisted.gificon_evil.gif


    So for those who are in the field in either Psychology ,health Psychology or Nursing ...like is it worth getting into those fields? Do you regret anything? is the pay worth it?

    How long did it take you? How did you keep yourself motivated through out University or college ?

    Get the Bachelor's in Nursing, if you really just want to be hands on or the BS in Psych if you want to do more of the research aspect.

    It depends. I was getting a BSN for Emergency Care, but I fell in love with infectious diseases (long story), so I'm getting my degree in that.

    Ehh what do you want to do with it?

    Nurses tend to seem like drug dealing servers outside of a restaurant -

    A friend graduated from the UCLA studying psych - she went hr with it..

    it is really up to you --- my unsophisticated opinion? Psychology is more versatile....
