first off--great forum and i am looking forward to hear any advice.
i have been an occupational therapist for 1 year within acute care...I certainly have been experiencing increasing job dissatisfaction and often think i would find a career as an rn much more fulfilling. i don't have a concrete answer for why except that rns seem to have so much more opportunities for movement and growth and i think i am much more suited for the fast paced environments (such as emerg/ccu) instead of the field of rehabilitation. there are many other reasons why i am dissatisfied with being an ot that i won't bore you all with and i have made up my mind that i will be changing careers, just haven't decided if rn is the right path or if it is one of those "grass is always greener" kind of situations. the pay is the same but in terms of long term career opportunities, rns have so many options! Maybe even pursue FNP after gaining experience as a RN.
anyone else out there with a similar story? interested in hearing any insights.
