Anyone who can give me advice, I would greatly appreciate it. I am currently a 30 year old Interior Designer and I am thinking about changing careers - long story short. I have a bachelor of science in Architecture. I am considering nursing and have asked many nurses that I am in contact with - what their degrees are in...for instance women's heath, Invitro Fertilization related, or operating room nurse, ect... I seem to get general answers. I don't know where to start online because I know nothing about NURSING. I live in florida and I work full time so I am looking for answers about which programs are better than others and why, and how long they are, which Universities I should attend?? Can I do it online at an entry level? I also keep hearing about how nurses are in such high demand that schooling can be paid for....is this true and if so by whom - the schools or the facilities? Could I really get a new degree for free due to high demand? Any direction would be great - somewhere to start other than google.
