If you weren't a nurse, what would you have become? - page 8

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

    realistic- travel agent, well maybe not since there's no market for that anymore.
    not realistic , but would love to own/operate a horse boarding/riding stable and or kennel for cats and dogs. I love my 4 legged friends. I have worked in the horse field before as a groom for show horses- and let me say- Those owners can be persnickety( nothing like the 8 year old handing off their 50,000$ pony to you and saying "here,cool him out" ) but after all the abuses I 've dealt with in nursing, Id rather have that instead.
    ohhh, someday......

    I went from Statistician to Nurse. If I had not gone into nursing, and considering my age, I probably would have become an auto mechanic. If I were about 10 years younger, I probably would have become a geneticist.

    I was looking longingly at the housekeeper working the hospital the other day. It's sad when you're an educated professional jealous of the lack of responsibility housekeepers have. <sigh>

    Realistic - I went to school originally to be an elementary school teacher, but I dropped out, became a CNA and the rest is history.

    Whimsicle: I'd love to get paid to travel, write about traveling, have a hobby farm where I can magically afford everything and not have to worry about making money and I'd breed dogs and horses, and be a writer like Stephen King.

    I love helping people so it would have to be something that I could make a difference like a teacher. Not a High School or College teacher but a grade school teacher, anything under the 2nd grade would be idea for me, I just love kids.

    Hmm...I'm not sure as nursing has always been my dream and I am perfectly content and know this is what I was meant to do!

    I think i'd like to open my own cafe using all local, organic and fairtrade products..using as many sustainable and environmentally friendly methods as possible...i'm really passionate about local/organic/non-GMO/envornmentally friendly food and practices as well as co-operatives.

    Before I chose nursing I wanted to be a makeup-artist as well.

    If I wasn't a nurse I think I'd be an accountant. I might miss health care though, so maybe a rehab specialty related profession like speech language pathologist? I always think the MRI techs have a really neat job, too.

    Whimsically speaking (well.. semi-serious I suppose), I really enjoy the weather patterns and earth, so I know I'd really enjoy being a volcanolgist or meteorologist. Only problem is there aren't any volcanoes near where I live!

    "All I really want to do is spend my life travelling the world, reading books that take my breath away, drinking all kinds of tea and occasionally write something. I mean is that too much to ask for?" - found on pintrest

    Unfortunetly, I have not found a single person that will pay me to do the above and I do think that I would miss healthcare.

    Also, I'd really like to go to medical school; I'm not sure if this is because I don't enjoy my current job and don't feel challanged or not. Regardless, it is something I just cannot get out of my head.
