0Sep 17, '12 by Bella54Quote from harroldndWell 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 spacesHi... I am a certified massage therapist now but doing my pre reqs for nursing. Does anyone knows how that works for me? Is it just like being a massgae therapist... can anyone help me? Thank you
0Sep 17, '12 by Bella54Quote from lyv33I 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 wrongI 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.
0Sep 18, '12 by Steven Price LPNi'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
