I'm a nurse manager for a large hospital with 10 YOE in nursing, but I'm starting to second guess my decision to go into leadership. Has anyone else left nurse management and pivoted to NP? I'm not crazy about the idea of going back to school for a third degree, but at the same time I'm turning 55 and I'm ready to leave the high-stress hospital setting for a nice small outpatient office. I'm considering focusing on Psychiatry. Thoughts?

What are this group’s thoughts on ESPPs? I recently switched to a large tech company that offers one @ 10% discount of market price. Already receiving ~15% of annual TC in RSUs so wondering if that’s too much exposure to one company, even if I do believe in their future.
I also have option to do MBD Roth so thinking that might be a better option from diversification perspective.
