If you had told me 10 years ago I would be a Nurse I would have laughed and said you had too much to drink. I'm in the Navy and have been for over a decade. I was also a submariner who worked on the reactor systems. Actually my first Bachelors is in Nuclear Engineering.

I remember sitting in a waiting room for an appointment at and reading a story in the Navy Medicine journal about a the USS Comfort (hospital ship) and some of the wonderful things they were doing to help people in desolate conditions lead a healthy and fully functional life. I thought to myself that nothing I had done in my life could compare to even one of those acts that I read about.

I started taking prereq's and applying to a program in the Navy that would let me go to college and study Nursing. The second year I submitted for the program I was picked up. I completed Nursing school and am now at my first Nursing job as a LDRP Nurse. I would have never saw myself here but I am loving every minute of it and would not change anything. I'm encouraging all the enlisted members I can to apply for these programs and become RN's.

I wanted to be a Millionare Playboy for quite a few years but haven't seen many positions open in the "Help Wanted" sections of the local papers. Most want you to bring your own Millions- very unrealistic. So I went with my second choice:RN. It's almost the same:long nights with naked people thrashing about, lots of mind altering drugs... I still keep checking the ads.

I have experiance in Childcare and corrently working as a occupational nurse in a private industry. My mager is nursing. I want to be a nurse always becase there is no job which give bless and money in the same time.

i was just wondering how many gentlemen out there chose nursing as their first profession? i just graduated in may and in my nursing program of 85 people, there were eight men. all of them, but one chose nursing as a second career. i was just always wondering why not more wanting to be nurses as their first career? what changed your mind? have you always wanted to be a nurse, if so why not your first career chose? thanks, i have just always wondered-laura :)

unquestionably, nursing was my first choice and it continues to be my passion, therefore, i will retire as a nurse; definitely adding msn in the near future:cool:
