What career path?

Did you choose? What is a ballpark salary (I don't want your specific salary, that seems too personal), and how long were you in school?

I went into finance and got a Bachelor's. You can make a lot in the field depending on what industry you go into. I ultimately went into non-profit and make close to 6 figures.

How long were you in school and what was your major? Accounting? I'm sorry if they're personal questions. I'm just tired of what I'm doing and looking for ideas for a change. But I don't want to make less that I'm making now.

It's fine...not personal at all.

I have a Bachelor's, so it was a 4 year degree and I studied Finance. I never went into financial services or the financial field. I stayed away because of the lack of work/life balance. I worked in consumer goods and then media for a long time before switching over to the non-profit realm. 

What do you do now?

I'm a nurse. I love it but I'm burnt out. I'm also developing some health issues that can cause me to become more of a liability than an asset.

I am a farmer. If I didn't farm we would have lost the family farm. I am the only family member from my generation that stayed.

Got it!

I know there are different avenues in which you can practice? Is that a possibility? Or even leveraging your nursing experience into something more adminstrative?

I'm a medical writer. I have a phd in biology, so I was in school for a long fucking time (4 years undergrad, 6 grad school)

Starting salary is about 65,000. It goes up quickly.

I work freelance. Last year I made 55,000 working part time.

what about becoming a telephone advise nurse? Most big insurance companies have them. Nursing is a good field, try a new way to do it.
