    Would I let my brother down if I quit nursing to get into teaching?
    I'm just now finishing high school, ill be graduating soon. I am currently taking a can class witch would get my degree. In this class I am serving my hours at a nursing home witch I have notice it is really not my thing. Meanwhile I have to do fifty hours of community service which I am doing them at an elementry school helping a 4k teacher. I took the can class because I believed that my passion for nursing was important. But I am questioning if I want to really do it or be a teacher instead. Nursing gets me the opportunity to help other people I feel it would always keep me spiritually close to my brother which died of cancer at 25 and I don't want to let him down at this point if I quit. But I don't feel comfortable being around all the chaos it takes. Meanwhile at 4k I have an opportunity to really apreciate what um doing. I feel like I feel needed and I'm changing someone's skills to learn. I could use some advise right now. Please
