If you weren't a nurse, what would you have become? - page 5

For some reason I was thinking about Spinal Tap, at the end, when the guy says he would sell hats if he wasn't a musician. So if you weren't a nurse, what would you have become? If I was being... Read More

    Not sure if I should be answering this since I am not a nurse yet, but I graduate next semester. I think I would be an elementary school teacher. Not because I have any real desire for teaching but realistically I think it would be a good career for a mother and I think it would be kind of easy. I don't mean any offense by that I think its a very important profession and I'm sure it ahs its own set of stresses but still I feel it wouldn't be too bad. My dream though was always to be a biologist of some sort out in the field

    I would have done interior designing. It is truly my passion. I love designing. I simply love working with color. They evoke so many emotions. Perhaps an architech, but I heard it's not a good time to be one in this economy.

    Before entering nursing school, I was an Aviation Electrician and had plans to go back to school to become an Electrical Engineer. Because of my husband having medical issues, I have seen the best and worst or nursing. It was when I was able to see the worst nursing has to offer that I realized that I could do better. Yes, I could make more money as an Engineer or even as an aviation electrician BUT money isn't everything. I will be the nurse that you want to have when you need me and I will love every minute of it!

    This is my second degree...so what else would I do?

    Realistic: sexual health educator, non profit management, or grant writer. (I'll probably actually get around to all three of these in
    my lifetime, I have plans to start another non-profit in the next 5-10 years).

    Pipe dream: professional cyclist, horse trainer, or potter.

    I would have been a lawyer. I'm actually starting law school next year.

    Whimsical I would have been a famous singer, fashion designer or a chef. I told my cousin who is trying to break into the music business that I'll be her back ground singer if she wants me too.

    A doctor, actually, which was what I wanted to be my whole teenaged life. Unfortunately, my own poor life choices in my last year of high school made that not impossible, but less likely, and I picked nursing instead as a related career that would take less time to begin than becoming a physician.

    I have also aspired to be a writer and a photographer, both of which I dabble in but lack the time and the focus to pursue in earnest.

    I ended up choosing nursing after many career changes throughout my childhood and adolescence. Disregarding my initial dreams of being a cheerleader and a waitress, I wanted to be a paleontologist, veterinarian, computer engineer, and pharmacist.

    If I could really change, I would choose to be a car designer now. That or an FBI agent. I developed a knack for true crime in recent years and if I could hack the training, I would so go in. There's a branch in my city too!
