I am thinking of changing careers. Considering nursing, but it seems like it might be risky as far as bodily fluids, contagious illnesses, viruses, etc. How many of you out there work in this field and especially how many of you work in the hospital setting in these or similar fields? If it isn't a good idea then I should try to find something else, however, it is one of those careers that when you study for it you know exactly what job to look for once you graduate! As opposed to having a broader degree in where you need to look at a wider field of job openings. I of course need something that is stable, with good insurance. I am single and cannot rely on a spouse's policy. I have to be able to take care of myself for a long time. I unfortunately do not have any children so stability and pay are pretty important for my future. Just wondering if any of you have dealt with many illnesses while working in the field, etc. Also, now that we are in the covid age I have to admit that I am wondering if certain employers would not want to hire me knowing that I have a transplant and that I am immunosuppressed, etc. I am not worried about this only in the healthcare field either. I have heard that some employers don't want to hire someone they worry might be having to leave work for lots of appointments or illnesses. Not trying to be pessimistic, because it really doesn't matter in the long run! I mean, they will do whatever they do! And I will just have to cross that bridge when i get there. But I was wondering what you thought about these things. Thanks so much for any information you might have. Love to hear from you.
