I am in the process of contemplating a career change to nursing after 25 years in the corporate accounting world. Most of my positions have involved accounting management. I have B.S. in Accounting and MBA degrees.
Someone close to me questioned how I would handle being constantly in a subordinate position to doctors and nursing supervisors. They also questioned whether I would view a nursing career as being underemployed based on my educational background and experience.
I don't feel I have problems with being in a subordinate position or feeling underemployed if I go into nursing. Has anyone, particularly career changers, had to deal with these issues?
