Health and Fitness meets Nursing

Posted

So. I graduated in 2010 and worked in trauma for 4 years and have since worked in the medical device world as a clinical specialist. I have never really been unhappy but neither have I felt 100% fulfilled in what I was doing. When I worked in the hospital I was in many different leadership roles and continue some of that in my current role. The more days that pass the more I see that my passion is health and fitness. I am a Beachbody coach and have been able to help a lot of people reach their health and fitness goals in the last couple of years. It's something that so rewarding and something that I'm passionate about. Is there A nursing role that incorporates health and fitness? That would be heaven!

The underlying problem is - our current US "healthcare" system does not value or reward preventative health care. It is focused on illness care. So - clients for those services are basically self-pay. This means that there is not enough revenue to foster any sort of job growth. Maybe some day it will happen. Right now, the closest thing I can think of with jobs (that have a decent salary) are the Medi-Spas & Nurse Estheticians - who inject fillers, botox and such.
