Changing Careers

Shelby Sandlin

Nurse to Physical Therapy

I am now going to be switching careers from being a nurse to physical therapy. I have worked hard to be in the spot I'm in today, and I can't wait to see how this new career will suit me.


Here are a couple of important tips:

Mapping Your Moves

When moving careers or work places, you don't just move and quit without you knowing if you have a set job or not. You don't just want to quit a job and something happens and you don't get that job they will not hire you back so you will be job less.

Making the Change / Tips

  • When making the change make sure you know what you are doing in the job you are switching to.
  • Know the information, so that you won't be clueless when something comes up.
  • Open up you options to possible spots in the job that you are not sure about.

Beginning the New Journey / Tips

  • Be respectful to patients and others in the work place
  • Be responsible
  • Stay on task in the work place
