If you weren't a nurse, what would you have become? - page 6

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

    Maybe be a librarian, there are books and the people who are there, can take themselves to the bathroom, they take their family members home, and you have to get your own coffee when you are there and it's quiet...

    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.

    I would think of some amazingly brilliant idea and then go strike a major deal on "The Shark Tank" and become a millionaire

    Realistic: Physical Therapist- I'm big on rehab.

    Whimsical: I would love to own a cafe where everyone gathers to play board games and sip hot cocoa!

    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.
