People always say this and I find it interesting.
A year ago, if you went to some off the wall "tech" school for 2 years and got an associates in Nursing you basically where given a job, a nice sign
on bonus and a nice paycheck.
However.. since then, hospitals have been on hiring freezes, and more often then ever "associate" nurses are being turned away for four-year nurses
(thank god, I don't want a Community College Dropout taking care of me!)
It's NOT entirely recession proof because the "education industry" has worked to saturate the market with quasi-acceptable nurses!
But if you DO go into Nursing, make sure it's a Bachelors and nothing less, just this past summer I watched my girl friend and all her college
friends fight over the same jobs.
