    Well I actually was (well I am) a licensed massaged therapist, now I'm also a registered nurse! Going to nursing school is nothing like going too school for massage therapy! You may find your pre req courses....ok A&P a little easier to understand and follow than some one who has not. I'm not sure if that answered your question?!? I do feel that nursing is a natural career pathway for a massage therapist, you won't feel weird about being in someones personal space.... AND YOU WILL be in those spaces

    I am interested in doing massage therapy and I am a RN. I lack 3 classes before completing my BSN also, but just am not satisfied with doing nursing any longer. I have been doing case management for the last few years and it is extremely boring. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    I do both. I was a massage therapist 1st then I went to nursing school! I LOVE what I do. I make really good money as a postpartum nurse and in my off times charge 75$ for an hour and 90$ for and hour and a half. Plus since I work for myself I keep everything I make. Which is the only way I suggest to do it. If you work for one of these companies like massage envy, you make no money! Go for it and you might want to leave case management alone! If your bored at your job and your a nurse, something is really wrong

    i'm an LPN and going for my massage therapy license. i work full time work and i'm in school full time
    it all depends on where you live NONE of my 95 hours of a&p were credited towards school so i have to take 150 hours of a&p
    and i'm learning new things every day. there are specialties available as a nurse therapist, and you can specialize in one modality
    if you do it right the potential is there to make six figures. check out the links below they should help
