Okay, since you've all got me thinking about careers, these are two others I've considered. The plan would be to work as a CNA (if my new massage job in chiro's office doesn't work out) until I could save enough to spend a year in nursing school. (Two year ADN program nearby, have prerequisites done all ready.) I've already had one year of nursing school years ago, so all I need to do to get on the nurses aide registry is to submit forms and take a test. I like that being an RN opens so many doors to other careers if nursing turns out not to be your bag. They are in demand, and all signs point to higher demand in the future. The pay is pretty decent. You get benefits. Would anyone like to share their experience of pros and cons? What do you like about nursing, what don't you like? What's a good day like, and a not so good day? You get the idea.
