Answer by Pass It On…
It may be the area you’re from, but where I’m from (Michigan – Detroit/metropolitan area) they’re begging for nurses! In fact, the hospital I work for just went through a major round of layoffs…and nursing was the ONLY department not affected because they’re in such high demand.
Another area you could look into is physician’s assistant (PA), also known as physician extenders. This modality has skyrocketed because docs are crazy busy and physician assistants have the schooling and expertise to diagnose and treat in the absence of the attending/resident physician…which a nurse isn’t authorized to do without ‘direct orders’.
