Well, you can be a doctor in the Sims 4. How's that?

If you were so compassionate and this was your dreeeeeeeam you would do it for free!
I would do it for free if it wasnt so expensive to live.
I hope to become a NP. I would absolutely love to open a free care clinic, but alas, I will never have that kind of money.
Just become one without going to school. You'll save a ton of money.

I don't have an accounting degree or a CPA license, bit I strongly encourage you to let me do your taxes.
GREAT I hate doing taxes.
I don't know if anyone has brought this up but I have worked with a few "diploma" nurses from back in the day and although they have been nurses for upwards of 40 years they still lack a lot of the fundamental understanding of physiology and rationales that I use at work every day. They are great, don't get me wrong, but there is a reason there aren't any more "work to nurse" programs. In California you basically can't get LVN jobs anymore so I'd imagine it would be impossible to get a job when all you have is a diploma.
I mi agree with everyone else if you think the classes are bs and you don't want to put the effort in now you absolutely should not be a nurse you will only be putting lives at risk.
Where I work we have a lab tech like that. Stories about how she used to be a nurse and always wants to give input on patients like she has a license. Guess she doesn't know that you can look up people's licenses with the BON here. Not to mention I can't imagine an RN going on the become a lab tech and not the other way around.

Thedsaly36 our diploma nurses are highly skilled, and yes, they were educated in pathophysiology, fundamentals, etc., just as we were. They also took state boards, too, you know.
I'm a diploma nurse, and I had to pass pre-reqs. This was in 2011. A&P 1&2, microbiology, chemistry, etc. God help you if you didn't know basic patho and try to get through my Med-Surg, Cardiac, Respiratory, Peds, etc, classes.
Diploma nurse teachers have zero tolerance for lack of knowledge. And rationales? Holy moly, you should have seen the care maps we had to do, and justify every single little piece of info. We had to tie every lab result, every drug, every intervention in to the patient's med dxs and nursing dxs. And if you got it wrong... yeesh. I'm having palpitations just remembering it.
