Thanks for all the feedback so far. I agree we shouldn’t add on to our debt situation which brings me here to find other options to present to her.
As far as what she likes about nursing, I think she truly enjoys helping others. She’s very selfless so when it comes to helping others she doesn’t mind going the extra mile. What she dislikes about the job is when patients/family members demand this from her. You all know what I mean I’m sure you’ve been there. What’s drawing her back to the pharmacist field I think is just not dealing with people so directly. Working with patients on the other side of the counter and not so personal. She also loves to organize which I’m sure you need to be being a pharmacist.
I kind of like the part time idea. Maybe it’s something to consider in the future when we get a couples bills paid of soon. But ultimately I agree that there must be some position that she can work towards that will not require her to go back to school for another 7 years or so. What type of nurse practitioner should I suggest she research?
