I've come to the realization that nursing is just not for me. I've tried 3 different times within the year and I've pretty much made up my mind. At this point I owe many student loans and scholarships
specifically for my nursing degree, I have other bills, can't afford to go back to school for anything else, and get the "no call back" from non-nursing jobs I have applied for (3 different jobs have point blank told me that I am "over qualified" and will leave their job soon to go back to nursing for more money! They all seem to be hung up on the money thing and my Bachelor's degree).
I was wondering if anyone could possible give me some pointers. Has anyone on this board completely left nursing (I mean not a director of nursing, not a nursing case manager, NOTHING in nursing) or do anyone of you know someone who has? Specifically WHAT jobs are you doing and what jobs did you apply for? This is the second time that I have tried to get out of nursing. The first time was a big gigantic flop, I went back to it, hated it still and quit again very soon. I feel totally closed in. It seems like people in other professions can leave their professions and move on to other things more easily than those trying to leave nursing.
Can anyone help with job suggestions? Thank you very much.
