Lpn Charge Nurse at Bishop Drumm

I am looking to take a break from Healthcare after almost 20 years for personal reasons (no I’m not afraid of covid). Any recommendations on what would be a good place or type of career to try out first? #change #advice #career

@Amy Robertson, taking a career assessment will determine where your interests lie, and help you learn what kind of work environments and occupations suit you best. There are plenty of free online assessments available like https://www.careeronestop.org/toolkit/careers/interest-assessment.aspx

With 20 yrs of healthcare experience, you could transition your skills into a new field such as real estate, pharmaceutical sales, legal nurse consultant; or perhaps you have a hobby or special skill that you can turn into a business.

Here's an article about transitioning from nursing careers that may be helpful to you. https://nightingale.edu/blog/alternative-nursing-careers/

Best wishes!

It seems we have the opposite problem...I'm trying to get back into nursing after having been out for 5 years (since Oct 2015). It was the result of a moderate to severe TBI from a car accident though. Maybe we can switch roles, lol.

I have worked over 20 years in Social Service field (Social Work). I went back to school to get a Masters of Science in Human Resources Certification online via Capella University with a perfect 4.0 GPA. If I can go back to school in my late 40ies, with my 1st experience online while earning a 4.0 GPA than so can anyone.

Also, I have within the last few years worked as a Healthcare Recruiter. I just started a new job as an Onboarding, Scheduling Specialist. I will also be an Office Manager for their new office site located in Omaha, NE for a Healthcare Staffing company. I wish you much success and luck in your next endeavor(s). Best Regards, Kristina

Maybe consider going back to school to retrain or further your education? Also, I am doing the same as you after 21 years...and am looking into starting or buying a business with a small business loan, savings, etc. I understand your challenge!

Seems like you want a break from busy congested buildings full of demanding people, employers, etc., maybe a State rest stop attendant cause it appears you are good around people but don't want the high demanding pressure. Researching family trees for folks ? Or like others stated, enjoy some time off and consider the next step.

What type of health care ? Take care of the animals sadley, they are the first to go... healthcare extends to our pets . You need to be more detailed in your post though.
