    I would love to enter the field of Insurance Nursing and wonder how to begin to work in this exciting specialityh.
    Another type of nursing specialty that I would consider is #10 Managing and More: Assisted Living and Long term care.
    Also #8: Faith Based Nursing : I am beginning a ministry in dealing with Chronic Illness at my church. I would appreciate tips on how to enter into these three nursing specialties.
