    For those of you who understand the financial world, even if you don't like it much anymore, I STRONGLY urge you to look into long term care. LTC? That's right! As an MDS Coordinator!! You will be a HUGE asset to your employer and more importantly the residents in the facilities. Office job, M-F, no lifting, etc. :-)

    Can you, or anyone, please expand on "good" money. As a prospective career changer with a family, I need to make sure that the pay will support my family.

    Depends on the geographical locations. Some states pay more, but have a higher cost of living so it doesn't work out to too much more. Plus new grads are having more and more difficulty finding jobs. So hopefully you find a job quickly after school or are able to wait roughly 6 months-1 year for a job in those areas where new grads are flooding the region.

    I am finishing up nursing school, and I am beginning to wonder of it was the right choice because of how tight the job markets seem to be, because I realistically can't wait more than 2 months after graduation to land a job. Sini have my fingers crossed that my BSN looks great to potential employers and I can move forward with my career and not have any regrets.

    In the NJ or Philadelphia area, does anyone know what the starting rate for a BSN graduate would be? How much does a nurse's rate increase after lets say 5 years?
