After 5 years of working as a midwife I have decided it's time for a change in career, I just cannot face it anymore.

The problem is I cannot have a reduction in pay due to financial commitments, so ideally need to earn 30K. I already have two degrees so am reluctant to go back to university, I don't mind doing some short courses but have no idea what to do.

I was just wondering whether there are any nurses/midwives who have completely left healthcare? What do you do now?

Watching with interest as I also want out of the NHS due to crazy shift patterns.

I will be leaving my nursing job soon due to intolerable stress and crazy 12 hour nightshifts making me ill. I also do another non nursing job though on much lower pay so will probably need to do some Nursing banks shifts to make up some of the shortfall.
