What are some alternatives to bedside nursing that can be found in Michigan? I am trying to scope out my options to see what is available in my state before I take the plunge and go back to school to change careers.Is the job outlook good here? I have checked out a lot of he hospital websites and see that there are a lot of nursing jobs. Are insurance companies or places like that hiring nurses? I would like to work bedside right out of school (not sure what specialty yet), but plan to have a family eventually and after a few years of bedside would like to look into something with more normal hours, etc. Any advice would be appreciated! I have heard that in nursing there are a ton of options.
