Career change at 46

(3 Posts)

I am soon to be 46 and after working in the NHS since graduation I want OUT. We now work ridiculous shifts and I am left with little quality time off. I am actually on the sick at the moment - first time ever!
Has anyone else changed career at my age? What did you do? How did you cope financially?
I want something that is normal M-F 9-5. Home working would be ideal.
I just can't cope with the mix of shifts we do now and constantly given my days off after nightshifts. Working way too many weekends and I have school aged children! It is affecting my health now.

My friend trained to teach nursing instead of actually nursing.

What do you fancy doing OP? It's not too old by the way.

I'm not a nurse though. I work in another profession. I have looked into lecturing but not that easy to get a foot in the door.

No idea what I want to do!
