I agree with 2ndChance - in my area of New England, it's very hard to break into the analyst role as a nurse without prior IT experience. On the other hand, there is also a lot of competition for bedside nursing positions, and the better ones (Monday-Friday, full-time days, etc) tend to go to nurses who have been in the union for years.
If you were to work in IT for a few years, and then want to go to bedside nursing, I don't think the IT experience would be a huge advantage - you would sort of be back at square one, and need to take a part-time position at a hospital, on the evening or night shift, or work in a nursing home. But that may be specific to my location. We only have 3 hospitals in this part of the state, 2 of which are very small, and the largest city only has a population of about 50,000. Regarding hospice, if there was enough demand that a hospice agency was hiring, and no one applied who had prior hospice experience, it would seem you would have a good chance of getting a job (and your IT knowledge would be a bit of a plus if the organization documents electronically).
