Most creative thing you've done or could do as an RN

    Enough griping...
    I'm interested to hear what people have done or want to do with their license that ISN'T the status quo...

    Start a grass roots patient advocacy group?
    CAM consulting?
    Global health nursing?
    teaching?
    Philanthropy?
    Let's hear ideas!

    I'll bite, but I don't know how creative this is...

    I've already done one medical mission trip and would like to do more one day.

    I've also looked into parish nursing. I went to a two day seminar and have talked to my church, but nothing has really materialized.

    My previous life before nursing was as a business analyst, so I'd really like to be the RN who works with IT to make these lovely computer applications we have to use be, you know, actually helpful!

    PS, what's CAM consulting?

    Does writing count? I write for nurses, patients, the general public. I found that my love of and my ability to write was enhanced by my nursing and has allowed me to find a niche that does me quite well.

    I design mobile-phone based decision support applications for nurses. I have also developed web-based patient portals.

    I'm guessing Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM).

    Mappers, if you want any advice on starting a parish nurse program, feel free to drop me a PM. I've done it and would be glad to assist!

    hmm, figuring out how to push 600cc of blood in in 10 min..(of course in a dire emergency)used a big stopcock and a large 60 cc syringe. Probably an old trick, but I take credit for figuring out this one..
