Welcome to Alternative Options

    My Story

    After I graduated from high school, I went into a diploma program for Nursing. Right after this I started a program to get a BS with a major in Psychology. By the time I finished this, I knew that Psychology was my field, so, I went into a program to get my MA in Counseling Psychology. I worked in this field since I graduated.

    However, I found that Nursing paid more and there were more opportunities, so I worked in the field of psych, but in Nursing. I have worked in-patient, and outpatient and I have taught psychiatric nursing. However as you can see on another website that I have, I was never really happy in nursing itself for many reasons. I have often said that I wish I had never gone into nursing. I wish I had gone into a psych program when I graduated from high school and gone on to get my PhD in psychology.

    I am retired now, but not really ready to retire. This is what brings me to Alternative Options For Nurses. I have searched for part-time work in Nursing but to no avail, so I started looking for other options. I came upon the idea, which I had been wanting to do, of writing about my experiences and dilemmas in this field. I started another website about nurses and realized there were options for nurses ‎if they wanted to either supplement or change their careers. Hence, Alternative Options For Nurses.


    I have always wanted to make a difference and I think I have made a difference in my patients’ life.  However I want to make a difference in the field of nursing as well.  This is the basis for this website and I hope I can change things for nurses in my other site, which is Nurses Need Support.  I hope that I can change how management and instructors in nursing do their job.

    The goal of my site here is not to encourage all nurses to leave nursing and go into some other field. That would be crazy. What would we do without nurses when we are sick. My other website is trying to deal with issues and frustrations and stresses that nurses face. However, there are nurses that are burnt out and want a new career, and there are nurses that might benefit from an on-line business to either supplement their income while still working or after retiremnt, or prepare for retirement. I wish I had known about this before I retired. So, I hope you will take a look at this and see if is for you. If it sounds like something that you would like to consider further Wealthy Affiliates is tremendously helpful in doing this.
