Jobs for nurses, besides nursing!?!


Hello! Does anyone know of jobs for nurses that aren't nursing?!

I've been a nurse over 5 years, with experience in various areas, and burnt-out is exactly what I am. I am also a mom to a new baby, so I want more time at home with her. I live in a rural area, so no clinics are really hiring. 12 hour shifts aren't cutting it anymore.

I have a bachelors degree...any suggestions?!

There was a RN on here that got a provisional teaching license and got hired on teaching h.s. Science. In an under served rural area.

What about opening a home daycare. Being an RN would be an excellent selling point. Marketing to, say, teachers and other nurses would be a good idea, I think.

Another idea is to offer night care for working moms who need over night care while they work the night shift. There is a real lack of that service I think.

A lot of non medical home care agencies hire RN's for supervisory visits. Case management is also an option but is very stressfull. I will venture to say that non clinical type RN jobs are few and far between.
