My name is, well, let's say Mr. Disappointed for now. I am now 41 years old, and I am unhappy with where I am in life. I served 10 years in the military working as a mechanic, and I need to say I did not enjoy my job much. I was good at it but felt miserable doing it. After leaving the military, I was only able to find technical and mechanical jobs - Employers would not hire me for other positions because my most recent experience was doing mechanical work. After my marriage broke apart due to financial reasons, I have been thinking about pursuing a career in nursing. But I am afraid my age and lack of healthcare experience would prevent some employers from hiring me. Would it be wise to pursue a career in nursing at my age? How would employers look at it? Even with a degree, would my lack of experience prevent me from getting a nursing job? Please don't be politically correct! Be honest, and don't worry about hurting my feelings. It's a due or die for me at this point of my life. I do have a BS degree in International Business, and I am not sure what do with it at this time. Thank you all!
