I am planning a career change into nursing in the next 2-3 years. I am 44. I have always wanted to be a nurse and I am not changing into the career for the money-it is what I have always wanted to do. There are many different areas I am interested in. Some things I have thought about are: getting a doctorate and teaching in a BSN program, getting a nurse practioner degree and working in a holisitic wellness clinic, going into nursing management (I have a MBA and a CPA from many years ago). I think I do want to do this for the right reasons, however money is an issue. I would appreciate your input so I can head towards an area that I will like, and can do well financially. Thanks for your ideas.
