This is something I've been wondering about & maybe some people out there who know psychology can comment. I made a change to nursing after a long career of research at the lab bench. I am curious about the thought processes for lab research versus nursing. With nursing, a lot comes at me at once which is very different from the lab setting. I do enjoy my new work quite a lot, but sometimes I still find it overwhelming. Or could it just a matter of age I made this change in my 50s.Any insights about thought-processing etc out there? I feel like I'm using a whole different side of my brain than I used to.
