Best wishes with both your acting and nursing careers. My advice is keep the talk about the acting career low profile while in school.
Some Nursing Deans and professors as you see may not favor a dual career.
In the current economic climate, having two careers is a good plan. So, keep right on track-it will make you a better nurse to also have another career that you love.
I have been an RN over 23 yrs. When I tried to get a dual degree, nursing and business the Nursing Dean said that she would not waste a space in clinical on a foolish idea that I would be one of the first wave of people designing computer programs for healthcare and specifically for nurses.
She rejected me, and my business professors and Dean could not convince her that is was a wave of the future. Back then, there were no cell phones, laptops,or pcs.
This was a setback for me and I pressed on and found a different nursing program, but never pursued the healthcare/computer option.
I had a great career as a nurse, by her closing one door it opened many other opportunities for me...
So, follow your heart and...
Go for you dreams!!!!!!!!!!!!!:balloons:
