    I would be running a charity. Nothing to do with nursing!

    Not only would I call in rich, I'd tell them they can have everything in my locker AND my last paycheck (if it meant I had to come in to pick it up)! Of course, I'd wait until I had that lottery check in my hot little hands...

    It would take enough to pay off my house, my vehicles, my student loan debt and my credit cards and then I'd go do something that I like doing, like work in a vets office or train horses. Probably less than a million and I could live quite happily on a smaller wage.

    For $100,000 I'd be able to quit my current job so that I could focus on getting my RN degree without having to work at the same time. For $500,000 I'd quit nursing all together and either go back to accounting, become a vet tech, or do medical transcription. With that extra cash in the bank, I could afford to take a pay cut.

    I would probably go back to my country and put up a business.
    I do believe in a qoute that "there's no place like home".

    I would work one day a week (absolutely no weekends, Fridays, or holidays) just to keep my skills current and keep my insurance. Then I would either volunteer full time at an animal shelter or I would open my own no-kill shelter for all kinds of animals and be the happiest person alive. I would also give some to Catholic Charities because they helped me out when I was going through a very low point in life. One of my first investments would also be a pool because I have wanted one since I was a little girl.

    I would work per diem. It would make work more enjoyable knowing that I did not have to do it to make ends meet. Just imagine how good it would feel to not have financial pressure. I think quite a few of us would actually enjoy nursing .

    i would always be in the medical field, no matter what. i would love go back to being a paramedic and work on the rescue squad i used to, all volunteer. to have that truck and be on call was awesome. of course volunteer so that i wasnt always REQUIRED to be somewhere all the time.
