Brief Run down: Im on my last semester of pre-nursing
. Nursing will be my 2nd degree. I already have an associates degree in business and have worked in the field for 10 years. Due the this unstable economy i decided to switch careers to nursing
. My 9-5 job is not favorable to nursing school
so i am seeking a job in the hospital especially a position with a union like 1199 that would aid in paying for my school. I am learning the hard way that the jobs on the nurse floor like unit secretary or pca pay like $15 to my understanding.
I already have a huge financial responsibility with the cost of living, mort., etc. I know a lot of people are career changers i would like advice as to how you guys did it financially
Kinda shaking in my knees, to think i would have to take a pay cut. I am currently an Executive Assistant for a real estate Mogul as exciting as it may sound there is no growth and always someone right around the corner willing to take my job for the perks, the experience and opportunity...The hours can be unpredictable and there really is not much time to study on the job
Is there something else that I could or should be doing while as i enter into nursing school. Am i selling myself short? Please share your experiences, thoughts, opinions and in sites
. Thanks so much
