    My dream RN job would be a Trauma ICU position. But ultimately, my goal is to be an Acute Care or Family NP. Or both!

    Dream job? Anybody old enough to have seen the movie "Coma" with Michael Douglas and Geneive Bujold? They had coma patients hanging from wires, 4 deep, 30 people in the room. Nobody peed, nobody pooped, nobody shed pounds of dead skin off nasty stinky feet, they just quietly dangled in their harnesses, and not one of those vents ever beeped. No hovering herds of relatives, just quiet.

    Considering the night I'm having, it would be bliss....

    Old enough to remember it...
    And I was young enough to be freaked out by it...
    Tired enough now to agree with you.

    Again, this:

    "nobody shed pounds of dead skin off nasty stinky feet"


    Do you ever wonder how much of that stuff we have accidentally inhaled over the years?

    Ew.

    My coffee isn't nearly as appealing as it was before I thought of that.

    My dream nursing career would be to work at a college/university working in the student clinic while also health promoting to the peers at the school...while working to do that I would love to work as a school nurse while goin to school for my masters to become a family np honestly I would love to have my own office and desk promoting health from all the experiences I hope to have while in nursing school and working as a nurse...so all these careers have all of what I dream of doing with a nursing degree...good luck to all of you chasing your dream nursing job

    I have held my breath a few times during morning assessment as I take off the socks and see the little flakes of dry skin and imagine how many smaller particles are floating in the air like little snowflakes.

    I've wondered how much medication I've inhaled. I had to crush most meds in the LTC I work at.

    There are certain episodes in our lives that we need to move on with. If the job isn't meant for you, it's time to find another dream job.

    So are you still enjoying the lifestyle of an RN in Hawaii? What specialty do you enjoy the most?

    I realize this is an old post, but my unit's intensivist team includes an NP. That would be a cool way to do both!
