Hi all,I am currently a high school mathematics teacher. I've taught for 8 years as of next week. I'm currently living in Las Vegas, NV where the public school system is ranked last and it's awful teaching here. Before this I was in the Houston, TX area and had a much better experience. Either way, I'm considering a career change to nursing. I'm 37 y/o old male. Will age be a factor? Also this is a career area dominated by women, will that matter either way?I've looked online of course about the coursework and it looks like it's not even worth my time unless I go for the BSN. I have a master's in educational leadership already, so I was also looking at the MSN. It looks like it may be a better idea to go for the BSN first and then check into my options for the MSN later. Biggest question is how does one manage to balance returning to school and making a living? I have plenty of bills but want complete my education ASAP. Best situation I can come up with is to find another teaching job and go to school nights and weekends. I'd probably go back to Texas to teach full again, while attending school. (Specifically I was looking at the nights and weekend program at Texas Women's University, in Dallas)While I have BS in Mathematics and a M. Ed in Instructional Leadership, I see some pre-req's that I may still have to take. How realistic is it to complete this program in a year? I haven't attended college since 2009, but I am a teacher. I'm good at science, when it comes to physics, but I don't remember liking Biology class. Ideas? Comments? Suggestions?Future plans would probably involve moving back to Las Vegas to work as a nurse, I love it here, but teaching public school is horrible. How is the pay for new BSNs? I'm at $47,500 with full paid benefits as a teacher. Based on averages I've seen online it looks like I'll make slightly more at first. Maybe later with the MSN I can add to that. Thanks for reading and all input.
