Just joined this website. You probably get this question all the time, but are the job prospects good if you are a nurse with a law degree? I desperately need to change fields. I actually hate being a nurse. There is no respect and you get treated like a waitress. I work 12 hr midnight shifts so hours can't get any worse. On the opposite, my cousin is a corporate attorney who hates her job, but would def not do nursing either. She said the employment rate for attorneys is bleak, but maybe not in health care law. Any advice is appreciated.
