So it's looking less and less likely that a teaching job will be found this year.

I started looking into the Masters Entry Program in Nursing at UCSF. Looks like a 12 month program to get an RN, then you can take a year, no classes,just working as a nurse, get some experience, and then go back for 2 years while working to get your Nurse Practitioner qualification.

I think this seems like a good fit. I certainly have the science background, this is the other thing I was considering when I went to Davis to do the teaching thing, and after 1 year of school (during which year I'm likely to be underemployed or unemployed) my salary would double from what I made in NC as a teacher.

I'm thinking that my experience as a network monkey, and an educator might be able to, in the future, turn this into something good. Some kind of medical-IT-training type thing.

Does anyone have any information about this program, or other programs like it that might be a good fit?

So... I'm a random comment! Hi, I'm cat. I found your journal when I was looking for people with "service dogs" in their interests, as I'm hoping to get one soon. Even better, we have some more stuff in common (not sure if it's you or someone close to you with migraines and RA, but I have both of those & more), and then, of course, there's all the geeky mac stuff. But, that's just for starters... so, if you'd like, we could be friends?
