    OP I am glad you are happy and fulfilled in your decision to leave so quickly.

    I could never imagine giving up so quickly on something I put so much time/money/effort into because of one lousy job. I hope you continue to be happy instead of continuing to career hop. I have a friend from school who has had about 5 different careers....she's 37. She seems to be unhappy no matter what she does.

    When I was unemployed 6 years ago, I completed a computerized career battery test at the local state employment office. It basically asks you all of these weird preference questions and it results in a printed report explaining the industries where your skills would be best utilized. Ironically, the career I was trying to leave was my lowest ranking industry, and among the top were health care and business. I started volunteering at a hospital a couple of months later and discovered nursing. 6 years later, I could not be any happier being a nurse!

    Your friend might benefit from this assessment tool.

I have a Bachelors in Business Administration, I regret not continuing with the Business Degree. Please contact me. I just need some guidance on how you did it. Because I am ready to quit nursing. Please email me neiop77@gmail.com Thank you so much and congratulations.

    I am happy for you OP but it seems that you went to nursing for the wrong reasons. Job stability and pay are no reasons to me or even changing major because "I could not find a job". But that's my personal opinion. I am saying this because I met so many people going for these reasons and honestly I would not want them to take care of me.

    Surely, there are other areas of healthcare we can enter with your nursing degree. especialy with our BSN
