    Hello,

    I’ve been a nurse for about 12 years and would like to do something else. I’ve decided to give trucking a try. I’ve decided to do a Driver Apprenticeship program through Willscott Mobile Mini. Any body from other occupations like nursing become truckers?

    Um, well, there's lawyers, but that's not saying much.
    @Chinatown might be a good resource.

    Best of luck

    welcome to the site, no, i was not a nurse, but i played one when my Mrs, or any of my 5 kids got sick, and the Mrs, was not available.

    i went over to trucking from automotive repair.

    retired after 48 years.

    Are you an RN? If so you might be surprised by the difference in pay between nursing and trucking.
    And no, I'm not a nurse but I was married to a MD for just over fifty years. We have several nurses and health care professionals in our family. They're all doing much better than the average truck driver.

    Pay wouldn’t necessarily be the main motivator for me.

    I was an electronics technician for 15 years, then became a cartographer (map maker) for about 23 years before I became a driver. Being a driver is a fill-in career to take me the few more years until full retirement age. Been driving almost 3 years, all OTR, or as I call myself, a West Coast Reefer Jockey and still enjoying it. Current plan is to drive until April 2027. But, I can pull the plug at any time if I really wanted.
