turning 40 and needing a career change

  1. Hi to all,

    I am nurse40, because I am turning 40 in 2 months. I am having an early mid life crisis I think. I thought about nursing 2 years ago but decided until I was committed I would wait and do it later. I have been pursuing an acting career for 10 years and knew at 40 I would change careers if I wasn't making the money.

    I love so many things about nursing. First taking care of people, the flexiblity of days, the salary.

    I am trying to take an anatomy classs in a few weeks to see if this is the right path.

    Any words of advice for me?

    Thank you.
