Ideas On What To Do After Leaving Nursing
- 0Sep 8, '13 by NJnewRNFirst, I know that this question has been asked before in many ways. I just need some ideas on what to do with my life after nursing. Has any ever left and pursued some completely different and was successful?
- 0Sep 8, '13 by jadelpn GuideDepends on what you like to do with your free time.
Open a consignment shop--would love to do that.
Make and sell jewelry, handbags you make, something creative and fun that you can sell. Even online.
Teach adult ed classes.
Activities director at a senior center.
Or be a receptionist at a salon.
Sell real estate.
Get a job at a clothing store, home decorating store....heck my Auntie loves to work at the local Target!!

Are you looking to still do something nursing related? If so, how long have you been a nurse? What kind of experience do you have?
I had to stop working due to health issues. I am able to make some money writing blogs for a gated website for the specialty I worked in. It's a good supplement for my disability income.
- 0Sep 10, '13 by VivaLasViejas, ASN, RN GuideI'm in pretty much the same place: trying to decide which skills I've learned from being a nurse that are transferable to other fields.
I haven't totally left yet......have one foot still in nursing, and one foot very definitely OUT. If you figure it out before I do, will you please let me know?
Thank you, and good luck!
