:hatparty: i am happy to help. i think it is interesting to get isnights from others. salary versus what one love's can be tough. my husband, as i told you, taught 4th grade. he loved it! he was lucky. most males don't last in elementry education due to the pay. however, for him being content was fisrt in line. of course, there are other things you give up.
my mainstay in nursing is newborn intensive care. that would be my speciality.
i worked for procter and gamble for five years as a nurse consultant. it was more of a "corporate american" type job. i loved it.
i owned a nursing agency. i liked some of it. however, i dropped it to do travel nursing, which i do now. i am at an age where it works perfect for me. when and if i get grand kids, i may feel more settled.
i always go back to my babies. i love the babies i take care of in the nicu. it by itself has been quite rewarding.
i have complained a lot during the years about nursing. but, when i look back on my life, being a nurse has really been pretty good to me.
oh, and i understand about concentrating on one effort. i'm past the time in my life where i can have too many things going on at once. sometimes i wish i could quit work and go back to school. i'm thinking that is the only way i would or could do it.
i love business. perhaps if i were to do it again, i would go into business. but on the flip side, a business degree doesn't make you an expert on owning a business. generally owning a business comes with having a skill, or having knowledge of a particular industry.
if money is the real issue, i think nurse anethestist are one of the highest paying jobs. so, if you really like that sort of thing, it may be perfect.
education and nursing and business is a great threesome. maybe we should go into busines. lol......
tell me how the interview goes.
if you need any interview tips, i have all kinds of information from corporate america on the interviewing process. :flowersfo
