Since it is extremely difficult finding a job right now in a hospital and even nursing homes, is there any other areas of the medical field that having a Nursing degree would work? I also have a degree in Marketing/Finance.

Any info is much appreciated !

hmm - most of those hybrid jobs in which a nursing 'background' is considered either essential or a "plus" actually require applicants to have nursing experience/competence. For instance, medical equipment companies frequently hire nurses into marketing positions because they can effectively communicate with the folks in their target areas... but those jobs require specific types of expertise and experience. Same goes for jobs in case management, informatics, pharmaceutical industry (drug rep), medical-legal, etc.
