    The ER has always sounded exciting to me. You definitely get a wide variety of experience. You see just about everything .....

    Good Luck To you!!

    PS) Medicine is my bag. I'd never want to study law (or marry Tom brady)!

    I would love to teach history, specifically history as related to women. We have done some awsome things and have been written right out of a lot of history. I love a line from a movie that goes something like "we women have been bred to have extremely low expectations for hundreds of years." If I could get one or two females to appreciate the contributions women have made to the world and have a clearer understanding of how we need to empower ourselves, not expend all of our energy in support the male of the species, we could really change the face of the world.

    True! Back in the early ninties I was on vacation in Monterey, CA and I met some older ladies in a Denny's restraunt. I had served a few years previously in the U.S. Army and found out that this group of ladies were all World War II veterans! They flew planes and had a part in helping to win the war! I was impressed. They were a great group of ladies. Very interesting....

    hmmmmm.....i love the idea of being an np specializing in palliative care.
    i have been contemplating returning to school, unsure of what i wanted to do but now that sounds awesome.

    before nsg, i always wanted to be an attorney, but decided against it for i could never represent a client who i thought was guilty.

    Seriously! We have a farm and are trying to get to the point where it will pay me to stay home. Milk the goats, sell the milk, sell some goats, make soap, cheese, other products and sell over the internet. We have a large organic garden and free range chickens. Life is good! My husband makes custom knives and our farm is paid for. I am looking forward to being a stay at home goat mom!

    I'd do it too if it meant being able to stay at home and make a decent living. I would'nt mind doing home health visits for a few patients, but those jobs seem hard to find and usually require you to be a RN. I want to go back to school but it's difficult with 4 kids at home and a husband who just recently had brain surgery. Trying to get back on our feet.....

    I have to admit that I don't like lawyers as a species. I remember my ex-boyfriend talking about his Harvard-educated lawyer father -- that it bothered him that his father thought about law being so malleable (which it is, but if everybody thought that way, who would obey?)

    But you shouldn't decide against law simply because you could never represent a client who you thought was guilty. There's a lot of law work that has nothing to do with criminal law. (criminy, look at John Edwards, for instance)...and, besides, you could always work in a D.A.'s office, where you prosecute, not defend.
