I'm considering a mid-life career change from education to some field in allied health. I'm seriously looking at either speech language pathology or nursing, and I would like to work in rehabilitation. I'm concerned about the implications of the Medicare cuts but feel that there will be a need for professional services in either area. Any advice on the realities of working in either of these fields? Any insights that might help with this decision? Will my experience in education serve me well in helping people to retrain in living skills and to adjust to new challenges in their lives? Thanks in advance.
