Have you thought about nursing?

 

I currently have two career change clients (both male) actively pursuing careers in nursing. For anyone thinking about reinventing themselves and starting out in a new field, there has never been a better time to make a switch to a career in nursing.

Employment prospects for registered nurses are excellent, and they’ll only get better as the population ages and requires more health care, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Currently, there are 100,000 vacant nursing positions nationwide, and the shortage is expected to grow to nearly 500,000 job openings by 2020.

The switch to a nursing career can be made pretty easily. If you already have a bachelor’s or master’s degree, you can enter an accelerated nursing program offered by many community colleges and universities. Bear in mind however, that you might have to take a few prep courses first.
