    Actually, I think alot of people use nursing not as a "stepping stone" but as a backup plan. They work as nurses when they want to/need money per diem, but do what they really want to do as their fulltime job. If they lose their job or need to move quickly, its easy to step into a nursing job somewhere. I've seen this happen alot.

    I know someone who just got her BSN and was studying for the MCAT before she even took NCLEX. I assume she will work as a RN only until she gets into med school. A RN is also a good foundation for law or B-school and a good credential to have for any health and/or wellness business.

    We had a doctor who was the PCP for many of our LTC residents. Best doctor I've ever dealt with. The woman would physically come to the facility and do rounds with the nurse on duty and actually care for her patients. Never saw that before or since. She was an RN in her former life. If only more doctors were like her.

    I know a nurse who did a BSN and then became an investment banker -- I did the reverse.
