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
Oct 26, '12 by OB-nurse2013, BSNNot 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
Oct 26, '12 by NJnewRNI 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.

Oct 26, '12 by PalmHarborMomBefore 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!
Oct 26, '12 by Wrench Party, BSN, RNThis 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.
Oct 26, '12 by DoeRNI 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.

Oct 26, '12 by SaoirseRNA 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.

Oct 26, '12 by citylights89I 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!
