I think it's time for a career change...

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

It's been really weighing on me lately. This job is just that. A job. A paycheck. Nothing more. I don't enjoy it. I'm seriously considering going to school for nursing. I'm terrified. I'm afraid I'll be the oldest one in my class. I'm afraid I'm not smart enough or dedicated enough to make it through school. On the other hand, I'm afraid that if I don't give it a shot I will always wonder "what if" and I'd just continue on feeling lost and confused and bored! /endrant

    My step daughter is 39 and finished up community college on her way to nursing school. It's never too late.

    She got a crash course in it when her second daughter was born with a heart defect. She's learned a lot along the way.

    Thank you all for your comments. :) I am looking into the program at my local community college.

    A friend of mine had been in finance for 20+ years, and was making good money, but hated every minute of it. When the youngest one hit college, she dumped her creepy husband, and ran away to nursing school. She was in her late 40s, and said she'd never been happier.

    One thing to be wary of in this economy is incurring a large debt to go to school. Other than that, I say go for it!

    I think it depends on where you go. Some programs are diverse and have people coming from other prior careers/jobs who mix in with the younger ones who went straight through...its not an easy job and can get strenuous depending i guess on exactly what you go into, but can definitely be rewarding.
