After 4 years of working at my friend's company where I am paid very low and have no chance of promotion or raise (in fact I got paid less after coming back from another company that wasn't gonna last..long story) I wonder if I should follow my heart and go back to school. I work as sales, a job that requires me to talk to people on daily basis and I still don't like it after 4 years of doing it. I am also doing loans on part time basis and going for my broker license but it still requires a lot of customer interaction with uncertain salary (100% commission based). So I am considering leaving both jobs and go in a different direction. I have talked to a guy going for his nursing license about 6 years ago and have considered going for it since it's a hot career now and pays pretty well, plus I love helping people and it would give me great joy to alleviate pain and suffering to others. Problem is I am already 31 and becoming nurse means I have to spend 2 years in school while working and it would mean giving up my business career (doh) and forsaking my business college degree. I know I'll have income as nurse to support a family and not have to work in a dead end job that I (slowly) hate. I am also afraid nursing may not be right for me and I don't want to have to find out the hard way. Any advice or suggestion? I want to follow my heart but need guidance. Thanks.
