I am currently employed in IT but hate it. I've been considering a career change. My wife is a nurse and I am 35 with two young children. There is a local tech school that has an ADN program. I already have a Bachelors in Healthcare Management from a reputable school and have several questions about my possible career change?
Is there still a stigma toward male nurses?
Would my bachelors in Healthcare Management combined with an ADN put me on equal ground with new BSN grads as far as the job market for new nurses?
Do male nurses tend to specialize in certain areas? I know one thing I absolutely am not interested in is long term care.
Any other advice for someone in my situation? All advice would be greatly appreciated.

if i where you, i would check in your local area and see if there is any accelerated bsn programs available. if so, complete the prerequisite requirements and apply. i see no reason to settle for an adn when you could complete your bsn just as quick... being that you have already completed your bachelors, you could also check and see if there is a physician assistant program in your area.
