    A new car because I am not quite sure mine is going to make it through nursing school. Then I will pay off loans and save for a house.

    I don't want to go crazy, but I do want to spurge that first check. I'll be freshly 20, single, with no kids when I graduate May 2013! I will probably just bask in that fact that I''l be licensed to push dangerous drugs through somebodies veins, but can't legally purchase alcohol.Lolz! I want to go out of the country on vacation not too long after I become a nurse though. Eventually I would like a Mercedes or a Hybrid car. The hybrid is probably more sensible seeing how gas is going. Of course after working a month or two I want to move away from home! I can really wait to get the really nice car until after I graduate fron NP school when I'm 24 or 25 (at least that my goal).

    I'm thinking I'll do something for my parents because of the support they'll have given me through my studies- car, accommodation, school fees ect. I'd hate to calculate how much of a financial parasite I really am.Thinking maybe paying for a mystery weekend for them. Or something else thoughtfull.Next big purchase would be a house ASAP.-All dependent on landing a job though :S I'll definitely stick with homehealth caregiving while I study so I'll atleast have work with them sun I graduate.

    Hey man good on you, i intend to do the same. My parents told me not to worry and to just start earning and paying my loan off/supporting myself. but i intend to give them a holiday to say thank you.

    I agree with a lot of the other guys with paying off the loans. I'm going to live a little though. Me and my wife will most likely go tour Asia as our first major purchase to treat our selves. Later I plan to travel so I'll be getting a loaded F150 for myself.

    So far I'm obsessed with paying off my debts, but I think I'll splurge on a vacation once those checks start rolling in.

    I graduate on June 10th - my first big purchase will be a german shepherd puppy. Wanted one for a while but haven't had the time to invest on it because of school. That, and working on paying back loans..

    This is a funny ass question. Sounds like becoming a nurse is getting signed to a major sports league. LOL! Well am gonna buy some more testosterone, since I've been drowning in estrogen for a good part of my quest of becoming a nurse.

    My first purchase is a toss up between a house or my students loans. And I'll definitely be taking a tropical vacation within the first year.
