Hello, I have been a nuclear medicine tech for past 17 years. Recently lost my job & have no prospects in this field. I am 46 yrs old. There is a very good private college in Louisville that offers a 12 month accelerated BSN program. I have been considering this, however after reading this forum, I am reconsidering. Is nursing really that bad? I have 3 children & getting through this program will be very difficult . I cant afford to make a mistake this time around. There seem to be an abundance of nursing jobs in Louisville. Can anyone give me some encouraging words or should I consider something else. I'm really scared & don't know which way to turn.
