I am 35 just laid off as an Administrator for an Ivy league University and have been toying with the thought of going back to school for Nursing. I am sick and tired of getting worried sick about my job EVERYDAY! However, friends have been talking me off Nursing, pointing the number of Nurses out there today and how even the nursing field is not as secure as it used to be and how the pay is no longer that good. Mean while, you have to work a double or triple to make enough, because of all the lpns too. So what would you advice a confused and desperate mother such as myself?
