I know of many, many LPNS who went this route, and now I was told they have a new payment plan, plus lots of grant and scholarship help.
No I have never considered it, but I'm taking a online course in Medical Administration. When I stop traveling, I want to do contract or consulting work in this area. The guy I have dating for awhile...is constantly pushing me to go into business for myself. He left Microsoft two years ago, and has been doing contract work under his own company. He used to contract to mircosoft thru an agency.
Now he contracts himself to microsoft thru his own company. He also teaches a course he developed himself, and will soon be placing his course onine. It took him sending out hundreds of letters seeking work, but he pulled it off. He was 48 when he started his own business...as he hated the 9=5 world and having others enjoy the fruits of his labor!
But I have about zero knowledge about the business world now that I have been in nursing so long. But I started out in the business world in another life, and I was VERY good at it, I don't say so myself...:chuckle.
I would like to assist in contracts negotiations, and assisting with writing grants...etc. So no...going back to school to just do more of the same...just doesn't appeal to me.
But you know what night owl, I know people who have been out of school even longer than you, and have done well. I think the more the desire grows in you, the more you will be driven to do something about that desire. I totally believe you have more knowledge than yourself probably even realizes.
But you know...if you don't start, you'll never finish, and my mother always said...nothing beats a failure but a try. And you can't ever fail, if you never try anything. So give it a try...maybe a course...at a time. You might be surprised where it takes you. And NO you're DEFINITELY NOT a wet blanket. If you continue to wait to deal with your dissatisfaction...it will only get worse. If you want....I will be glad to be your own personal cheering squad...:chuckle. Just give it a try...what do you have to lose???
