career change?

Posted by Dawn S. on 6/03/03 at 12:01 (120796)

I am 23 yrs. and about to begin studying for a nursing career. I do, however, already have a BA degree. I now work as a nurse's aid and have had heel pain for the past 4-6 months. Now I wonder if a nursing career is a good choice for me considering the pain. Should I choose an occupation that demands less walking and standing? I'm wondering if any experienced nurses have some advice for me, or if anyone can relate to the choice I have. Any replies are more than gladly welcomed. Thanks, Dawn.

One should only consider a career change if the condition is not curable -- it is curable most of the time. What treatments have you had so far?
