If you weren't a nurse, what would you have become? - page 7
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
0Oct 27, '12 by SunshineDaisyI always wanted to be a comedian when I grew up. Sometimes still do! I also want to own a book store. not a Borders or B&N type, but one that has used books, big comfy chairs and couches, coffee and tea, everyone is friends type of place!

So if you weren't a nurse, what would you have become?
If I was being serious, probably a social worker, because when I went back to school, I was debating between social work and nursing.
If I was being whimsical, I'd be an astronaut. Even though I think I'm too tall, and know I'm too out of shape and don't have the science and engineering brain for it. But it's a fun thought!

0Oct 27, '12 by itsnoworneverProbably a lawyer---In school I was debating which path I would go, decided I get too emotionally invested in winning and would be an emotional wreck, so I went into nursing school.
Whimsically???? An animal trainer at sea world or a marine biologist who saved animals around the world. Or a K9 officer (I was on the path to getting a dog with the military when I got pregnant with my daughter)

I suppose it would be fantastic to be able to travel the world and see all the architecture and history.

If I became independently wealthy, I could definitely drop out of society, leave the world behind, and become one of those forgotten recluses or hermits who survives primarily due to being self-sufficient.Living off the land without having to worry about money, bills, war, etc. Having the privilege of peace and silence out in the middle of nowhere with just the sound of nature around (maybe a person or two as well)...perhaps have a friend named Wilson.

0Oct 27, '12 by chiromed0, ADN, BSN, MSN, RN, APRN, NPWell, probably a D.O. I became a chiropractor which is 1/4 a D.O. simply b/c I didn't know enough about Osteopathy to have started down that road. Now, I'm an RN and looking for an RN gig, shortly enrolling in an NP program. So I guess I can only say I would be a healthcare worker b/c after all these career choices, that's the only common title that fits. Other than that? Mechanic b/c that's basically what I'm doing on a person rather than a car: checking the dummy lights, reading the codes, fixing the wiring, patching the dents, filling holes, welding it up, fluid changes and alignment. Sometimes some sanding and & painting and if need be, reprogramming the computer. Cars & people...eh, same thing.

0Oct 28, '12 by dirtyhippiegirl, BSN, RNRealistically -- I got into DVM school and probably would have gone if nursing hadn't popped into my head. I don't necessarily think that I would have been happier 'tho. Actually, I'm pretty certain that I'd be even more unhappy than I am now.
To the person who mentioned WalMart: I was *very* happy working as a cashier at WalMart. But probably not so happy making $9.50/hour with no benefits and an uncertain number of hours per paycheck now that I'm not a college student anymore.
If I could turn back time about ten years, I'd probably have followed my dad and gone to medical school.
In fantasy land, I would have been some modern day Jane Goodall but studying elephants instead.
