Paralegal Follows Heart to Nursing

Vicky Tilman is following her heart — and the promise of a higher paycheck — into the nursing field.

Her previous work as a paralegal in Moncks Corner was pleasant and steady, but 40-year-old Tilman knew her boss was nearing retirement, and she ultimately wanted more job security than what her small business employer could provide.

"It's hard to find a job as a paralegal," she said. "I'm not saying they're not important, but there's a lot of them. It's very easy to be replaced, and there's always someone willing to take less money."

Tilman is months away from completing nursing school at Trident Technical College.

If Tilman misses being a paralegal, her nursing degree can also propel her into the lucrative field of legal nurse consulting, which would allow her to use her medical and legal knowledge.
