I am an ER nurse. I have been a nurse for almost 20 years. I realize I'm getting older and am more likely to get hurt in the ER or ICU than almost anywhere else. I'm over weekends and holidays and nights. I don't want to be a manager or director on the floor- I'm not good at it anyway. I was thinking of going back to school for a BA in Health Informatics. Because of all my science classes and only an ADN degree, it means I will need to go about 3 years to get this degree. I will be 50 and need another year or 2 for a masters. This is a lot of money and time. Is it worth it? Do you think I will find work? Will 52 yo with no experience in informatics be able to get hired? I plan to stay in the ER while in school for the money. I'm still a single mom. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
