I just finished year ONE of an Associates program. I am officially an LPN. Initially, I was going to go on to be an RN, and later on, a Nurse Practitioner..but I have also found an interest in taxes. I’m torn. I’m GOOD at both. However, my ultimate goal is to have my own office and work for myself. I know that I can be a tax preparer and generate some decent income working hard those few months..and same for Nurse Practitioner. I just don’t know how to weigh out the benefits for both. Which one is worth it? I’m 26..and a female..so as you can understand..I don’t want to waste my entire life starting a career..I have a biological clock that is also ticking
PS. To the people who think that nurses “always have a job” and are in “high demand”. I would like to tell you that that is NOT true at ALL and part of the reason I’m open to two options. Additionally…nursing is abusive and doesn’t pay well for what you are dealing with. However, I DO love it. I just hate the hospitals and how they slam nurses with so many patients that they can’t really give special care or anything. I’m soooo torn.
Also..I know this is the wrong section..but it’s a very active section with several adults, it seems..so I wanted to see what kind of insight I could receive.
I am in NYC and can’t land a nursing position to save my life..also know several experienced RNs who have been out of a job for a year.
