I was a nursing major in college about 12 years ago but got caught up in the music industry and have done pretty well for myself in this industry. Currently, I am a Record Label executive at a Major Label and have a radio show on a prominent New York City radio station. Although, I am doing very well in my field both financially and career-wise, I have always wanted to return to college and finish my Nursing degree. I understand the sacrifices that I will have to make to pursue my dream. However, after reading some of the negative posts on this BB, its making me re-think my decision. When I left college to pursue my music career, I had EVERY intention to go back. My thinking was, "School will always be there for you but getting into the music industry is a once in a lifetime chance." After 12 years of the music industry, I feel that I have done all that I can in this field. My other reason is that at age 30, I feel this is a good time to make a career change. I figuire that by the time I finish school, I won't be too old. My concern is that I keep hearing work conditions are very dangerous at the hospitals among other things. Also, I want to get into Nursing Informatics because of my various computer skills. I have many other reasons why I want to leave the music industry but the main reason why I want to go back to Nursing is it was my lifelong dream which I have never stopped thinking about. I'll probably still have my ties with the music industry but I want to know what to realistically expect going back to school and being part of the RN workforce. Thanks for your time!
