Hey yall! Im changing careers at 27! I have been in the construction industry ever since I was a teenager and have decided to go to school to become a RN. I am the safety director for a large general contractor in Oklahoma. I manage over 200+ employees and a team of safety coordinators, as a team we keep our workers nice and safe so they can go home to their families every day
I am an artist as well. I sing and write music and would love to have more time to work on it but with working 6 days a week I just don't have time for it. I am a caring person that tends to always put other peoples needs above my own. Im attractive,fit, and easy to get along with..Can you give me some advice? How much of my social life over the next couple of years will I be sacrificing? I have a full sleeve(tattoo). Will that affect me in nursing school or in the work place? I dont have any piercings and I dress very professional, well for jobs I do Is it hard for a male to get a job in a hospital? Hard to date?? I take constructive criticism very well, believe in team work, and always have a pretty good attitude
Reason for changing careers:
I would like to make more of a difference in peoples lives more than I am doing now. I have not decided exactly where I want to work but a part of me is considering working with burn victims. My dad was killed in a fire 2 years ago and I feel I would do really well with burn victims and their families. And of course financially it is a rewarding career. I make good money now but I am going to work as an AUA at the beginning of the year to start getting some experience, better work schedule and get my foot in the door. I know HUGE pay cut compared to my job now but while I am going to school Im sure i can hang in there because it will be worth it when I graduate. I start this august towards the nursing program here at the OCCC. Any advice or opinions would be great!! thanks alot!!
