Another nurse working in a community hospital asked me the other day about what medical sales jobs were like. Like many nurses, she is tired of the long shifts, having to work solid weekends at times, the labour involved and the sometimes nasty politics that can occur at hospitals.
I gave her my thoughts on the industry and mentioned to her that I have met many successful pharmaceutical sales reps who were former nurses. I even had one under my management when I was a sales manager.
I also told her that she should take a look at my article on Nurses in Medical Sales Jobs which will give a nice overview about possible career changes too.
More information is also available on medical sales careers.
