Marco, your situation is a little better than others. However, since you do work at a hospital with tuition reimbursement and have the option to work at home, why not explore better arenas in health care? I know that my friends who went to physical therapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy and physician assistant school are not crying the same tune as nurses. They're all making the "big bucks" and I totally envy them.
I can give you an entire list of other careers to look into, that most people overlook since they have fallen into the trap of the media and believe that nursing is in demand. These fields are a little more niche and not nearly as saturated as nursing. It's something to think about. Part of me wants to scream at the top of my lungs and tell you to run the other way. I have a STRONG feeling about this. I feel that you would do MUCH better in another field.
I realize it's scary to think outside of the box and I realize you have been conditioned to believe that nursing is a "great" job that is "in demand" and employers will always want you..."you can do anything", but it's a big, fat, lie. Nursing is no longer what it was before. It's SO far from that and with the current trend, things will only get worse.
Really sit and think about this. I REALLY believe that you will be happier in a better field (such as the ones mentioned). I would hate to see you on here in a few years telling us "You were right, there's no nursing shortage". It's still a LOT of money and a lot of time, in your life, that you will never get back. Follow your heart. Part of me thinks your heart is trying to warn you and tell you otherwise. I'm glad I stopped to consider my intuition. I'm exploring my options outside of nursing as of recently.
