  1. I'm a 41 year old single mom (joint custody) who will be an empty nester in 4 years. I'm not sure if I'm going through a midlife crisis but lately my corporate insurance job no longer lights my fire and I am yearning for a career that gives me a strong sense of purpose and the feeling that I'm doing something meaningful. I have family members who are nurses and they've been encouraging me to consider Nursing. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Business & 14 years experience in the insurance industry + 6 years in the tourism industry. I'm looking into getting in the GEPN at University of Hawaii- Manoa on the DNP path. I know that once I start, there's no turning back because I'll be using part of my IRA money for living expenses while I do the 1 year intensive prelicensure before taking the NCLEX. Do you think Nursing school is a good return of investment at my age (41)? How is the job market for Nursing Grads in Hawaii? Thank you in advance. I appreciate the feedback.
