If you’re looking for a field with plenty of jobs, employment experts agree: Get into nursing. As Daniel Pink puts it, “There’s ferocious demand for nurses now. Nurses can essentially write their own ticket.” But according to Laura Silverthorn, RN, that demand has its downsides. “There can be a lot of mandatory overtime, few lunch breaks and a ton of stress,” she says.  That’s why she advises people to make sure they enjoy the work before committing to it. “Community colleges give you clinical experience the first semester, while in a four-year school you wait until the third year to even touch a patient. That’s way too late to find out if patient care is right for you.”
