I am thinking of leaving nursing but still need/want to work full time and would love to use my knowledge. Has anyone used a career counselor or found something they love and still make a decent income? Thanks!

Great question.

Great questions! You made a valid point that I never thought about with respect to salary. To me decent is $80k >. I guess I need to think more about what I truly love.
