I started a topic about jobs a few weeks ago- this one is more specifically for any registered nurses out there!
I'm currently in the military working with networks and computers. I do not want to do IT when I get out however, and am looking for a career path to get into. Most of the things I would love to do simply don't make the money to sustain myself comfortably. So I researched into other things to no avail.
Then I began to read up on nursing. For once I'm actually intrigued with a job outside of my working with animals dream. I've been avoiding it all this time for petty reasons and I regret that. I had the wrong perception on it. It seems flexible with good income and rewarding (although I don't think I could take the stress of working ER). I am from Houston so nursing might not be a bad deal seeing as Houston has a major medical center.
The flexibility also seems compatible for horse lovers. I've come across a good number of RN equestrians, which is why I'm asking this question!
Any registered nurses here? How do you like it? Do you find it compatible with your hobbies and lifestyle?
