Reversing swing of new front door

I recieved a steel front door from a friend who got a new front door. This door is a single door with a glass panel on each side. The frame is all together. I need to reverse the swing of the door. Does anyone have any ideas to make the job easier? My concern is with the door jambs.

Hello, Is the jamb wood or steel? If it's wood the only problem would be filling the mortise for the hinges and lock set. Before you fill the holes hang the door on the other jamb using a tape measure transfer the hinge measurements from one side of the jamb to the other, hang the door .With the door closed transfer the center line of the lockset on the door to the jamb then drill the hole in the jamb for the latch. When it all works the way you want it fill the unused holes with a epoxy or plasic wood.
