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 serious, probably a social... Read More

    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.

    If I only knew then what I know now: prosthetics/orthotics

    If I was 25 years younger: neurobiologist, geneticist, virologist, microbiologist, research psychologist.....yeah...love sciences

    Big dream: own a bar/hostel/rv park on a beach somewhere in Central America.

    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!

    Doula, IBCLC, children's author, landlord, daycare provider for medically fragile kids or copy editor all sound good. Nursing is my second career and no matter how nutty a shift can be, there's always at least one moment when I know this is a really good fit for my skills and personality.

    Wow! Almost spot on alike! I LOVED my microbiology class and I would've also loved to have become a geneticist, virologist, microbiologist or research scientist.

    I have a talent for art/drawing/painting so the art world has never been far from my thoughts. Graphic designer or fashion designer would've been quite interesting!
