What I learned this week

  1. 0
    I'm a mid-life career changer and have been looking for a new grad LPN job for months.

    Several weeks ago a staffing agency contacted me about doing some temp work related to my previous career. So this past week I spent in the office where I used to work. I hated it. I spent 40 hours by myself in front of a computer doing data analysis.

    I was amazed at how I remembered all the different screens I needed to look at, I hated every screen my brain remembered.

    I hated every minute of that 40 hours.

    I could get a good paying job doing data analysis, it would pay more than LPN I'm sure.

    I want to be a nurse, I want an LPN job. I don't care if I make less money than I would sitting in front of a computer.

    I start the RN program in May. I'd had second thoughts on doing it because of the current job market for new grads. I thought about going back to doing data analysis but not now, hell no. I'm going to do the RN program, its what my soul needs.

    Nursing is for me, I just need to find a job.

    Stick with it - you will graduate in 2 to 3 years depending on the program and the economy will have changed by then - hopefully for the better! You just got a great reminder why this is worth it!! Good Luck and keep plugging along!
