I'm new here and this is my first post!
I'm looking for advice/suggestions.
I have just started taking the pre-reqs for the Nursing Program at my local community college in Maryland and I would love to work in a healthcare setting. My experience over the past 8 years has been in the financial/banking/investments field; primarily in an adminstrative capacity, and I am finding it hard to obtain a job in healthcare without healthcare experience eventhough I am applying for jobs closely related to my experience.
I have a couple of volunteer/internship positions at a free clinic and a hospital from high school (I knew back them but I became pigeon-holed into finance!) but these positions are not on my resume; no room right now, and the experience is over 8 years old.
I have considered volunteering, however with my work and school schedule that would be hard to commit to. Any advice or suggestions?
