I am 62 years old and a 2 year survivor of uterine cancer. I am fortunate because I do have a jobfor a major hospital. I enjoy what I do as an addiction's nurse. However, I believe I am experiencing some age discrimination from my peers on the unit I am currently working and my charge nurse is high strung creating major stress at work in addition to her descriminatory comments of suggesting I retire. I have 40 years of experience in the field of addiction nursing. I want to change clinics, however , I know the atmosphere will not be much better. I am interested in the possibility of transitioning into working as an oncology consultant/educator/counselor nurse for survivors. I do not have a BSN at this time. I have applied for an online program for a blended program in nursing. I have a masters in divinity and I am a certified parachaplain. What suggestions do you have? where would I start?
