Working for an insurance company here in South Carolina requires at least 3 years experience, just an fyi for those wondering.

Again, there is no nursing shortage. There may be plenty of positions listed, however they fill very quickly.

Thanks
You could go into medical/Pharma sales. My neighbor makes huge $$$ doing that. He doesn't seem to have 2 brain cells in his skull to rub together so if you have an IQ over 100 and a knowledge of medicine I would think you can make a good living.

Be a workers comp bully. Those nurses bully folks on workers comp...good money if you have no heart or ethics. Case management is good work. Lots of contract work....why don't you want to be a nurse? Why did you go to nursing school?

Yes, I know at least two nurses doing this right now. Some attorney firms will also hire nurses for the same reasons.

However, if I had a nursing degree and wanted to make more money - I'd go into pharmaceutical sales.

I have a lot of friends in this business and believe me, they aren't killing themselves with work AND they are making very good money.

Try private duty. I love it,and the wages are just about as good as floor nursing.
The only downside? No bennies,no vacation either.
