Advice on which way to go.

  1. Hi,
    I have been posting here about becoming a nurse. But I have come to a crossroads. I have been seeing a career counselor and we came up with that I love the elderly. My tests also showed that I am a natural leader. I have always had a love for healthcare but don't know what I want to do in it. I lvoe teaching and adminstrative work. I have a BS in Human Resources Management. Do you think a nursing degree is better or health care adminstration? We also evaluated my values and the top three were: Economic Rewards, prestige/status and economic security. I know I sound confused and that is because I am. Can anyone offer any advice?

    Thanks,
    Jennifer

    What about social work in a nursing home? Or social work in adult protective services? Just a thought. You could still work close with the elderly. After being a nurse for several years now, I love working in Long Term Care, however I have always thought it would be great to work in the social services end of it also.
