Just out of curiosity, what "academic" interests do you think it takes to be a nurse?
In other words.....do you have an innate interest in human A and P, in medications and in technical things like putting in iv's, etc?
Has anyone out there obtained the nursing degree in order to use it as a stepping stone to work in research or administrative work?
Thanks for your opinions!
When I think about it, nurses are such a diverse group from all backgrounds and interests I would be hardpressed to come up with something. I mean there are biker nurses to transvestite nurses to everything in between. Some like science some don't. Some like math, some don't.
As for me, I was a math and science kid in school. As I grew had an interest in medicine and helping people.
