    I'm early into my program so I'm not sure. A family friend thinks his wife can get me a job at some unionized place with a decent salary + benefits. Not holding my breathe but it would be nice if that works out.

    If not I'll just spam all these places with applications and hope for a job. I think I'd prefer working in a nursing home, but I'll come to a decision once I start clinicals.

    I am 51, and have just finished up. I was thinking about med surg/ortho or nursing infomatics. Was wondering if anyone knows of good or in demand areas for over 50 nurses on new careers. Not the er or acute care settings for now.

    Ever considered peds? I'm yet to have my clinical in that area but I'm thinking working with kids might be cool. I got kids of my own and they seem to make easier patients than the wife. On a serious note, after getting some experience I think teaching is the way to go. Nursing is way short of male professors.

    Teaching I think is very much needed, and may not be biased against 51+ years. Just need a masters for that.
