Alternative nursing careers?

  1. Okay, here's the thing... if I could walk out of hospital nursing today into a job where I can make comparable money, I would do it. Nothing dramatic has happened, I'm just tired of it after 17 years. Unfortunately, I am the main breadwinner and can't take much of a pay cut, which limits my options. Also, I keep thinking that it would be a shame to waste my experience. I have an ADN and 16 years of L&D/PP/NBN experience.

    I am open to trying new things, I just feel like I don't know where to start.
    I would love to hear from anyone who has been through this, whether you changed careers or just changed the type of nursing that you do. Any websites or books to recommend?

    Thanks in advance

    PS - all you newbie nurses out there - don't listen to me! I don't want to discourage anyone.
