I also have an architecture degree (worked for over three years now), but am starting a DNP-FNP program in the fall. A lot of people have a skewed perception of the architectural profession. Its not as glamorous as what the media shows, and the profession is evolving and making drastic changes...changes I do NOT want to be a part of. The only connection we have is with our computer screen 8+ hours a day, to name a few reasons why I want to get out. My cousin (an RN) initially told me to not even try, and now that I got accepted into the program she knows how serious I am about a career change and is more supportive.
Anyone in a similar situation since the last 2014 post in this thread?
