My mom sent me this article today. It’s kind of long, but a fascinating read about a 2nd career nurse. Lots to think about here, from the reasons that encourage us to make the change, the challenges of becoming a nurse (even after the official school part is done), the joys of nursing, and the occasional realities that the former career just pays better. The last point is an interesting one that I’ve pondered from time to time… what if I do this nursing thing and then decide that corporate life wasn’t so bad after all, either pay-wise or lifestyle-wise? What would that mean?
