I too, received my BA in art/photography after high school. I worked in the creative/publishing field for a year, until the company closed. After that, I struggled to find art-related work...nothing. So, I worked in retail, and joined a year long LVN program. Could not work during the program as it was so demanding...but since graduating and working, yes you can make time for your art, but sometimes I don't even feel like doing anything but relaxing after work. I found my niche in private duty/home care, so I work with one client 8-9 hours a day....let me say, the stability and helping people/fostering a relationship with the patient and family can be VERY rewarding. But I have found my creative endeavors have taken a back seat. Like someone on here mentioned, I too, have a few projects in the works that have been in the works for quite some time. Let us know what you end up doing!
I'm "only" a LVN, but I too, would love to work in an alternative/holistic environment.....a clinic that offered massage therapy/reflexology/homeopathy/herbology/aromatherapy/health&wellness coaching....etc. etc. etc! If anyone opens up one of these in or near San Jose, CA, PLEASE let me know! hahaha. Anyways, kidding aside, I am finally going for my BSN-RN. I want to be able to have more career opportunities, including something in holistic healthcare. I'd go for massage therapy, but that's another however long program and I think I need to focus on the BSN first.....:spin:
Yes, I'm a little confused too. If you are out of california, attend this school/do the online program, pass your RN boards, you can go back to California to work, right? Just doesn't make sense.
