I won't go into too much introduction about myself, since I've already sort of introduced myself in a couple of different places here. But I am in my late 40s, have worked in the corporate world (IT) for 25 years, and am thinking about a career change into nursing. I am married and have three kids...two in college and one who will be there in a few more years. I'm hoping that, if nursing works for me, I will be through school about the time my youngest finishes college (or he will be close to it).
I also wanted to see if any of you who are similar to myself...a little older, career-changers...might have read a particular book looking for an answer to the "is nursing going to be right for me" question. I found a book called "Becoming a Nurse" from the Learning Express editors. There are two fairly positive reviews on Amazon, but that's not a lot to go on.
They have a Kindle edition and it isn't very expensive...I may get it just to see but thought I'd ask if anyone here has read it.
