    Full time voyeur in a college girls tennis class.

    Britney Spears personal masseuse

    Anna Kournikova's nightmare come true.

    A ****. A male whore. A coniving, conartist of an ex-nurse, turned loose on the younger female public.

    Something, someone to bring an ounce of reason to those tortured, beautiful bodies basking there on the golden sands of life.

    That's what I'd be.

    But, instead...I wipe butts of the fat and infamous. The slothen and lazy. I suck blood out of the alcoholic throats of the holiday-time forgotten scum of the earth. How could I EVER want to LEAVE this JOB????????

    Mommy took pills and made it allllllllll better. Daddy gave them to her.

    Woops. Kinda' went off ona' tangent there, ya' unnerstan'?

    I'm actively making plans to leave nursing for awhile. I'm going back to school next month to become an elementary ed. teacher. Though, I won't be leaving nursing for close to 2 years. It's not easy to switch careers! LOL! I don't know if I will leave nursing forever, but I need a break for now. I want to do something else. Am I prepared for it? Probably not, but I'll learn the ropes just like anything else in life. And will I be happy doing it? I sure hope so! I think I might like it, so I guess I'll never know until I try it out for real!

    My "other" dream job interests would be: working outdoors doing some sort of nature education/public awareness in the National Parks or working with animals (maybe a wildlife rehab facility).

    I would like to know what the original poster, kjmta57, would answer to these interesting questions!

    Vet tech, law ( I know where the bodies are buried, haha), pharmaceuticle (sp?) sales....I'll stop on my rounds and buy some coffee! Write a book or two or three....write educational material for hospitals.
    I love nursing but sometimes wonder if I will stay forever...glad there is so many different areas for me to explore in nursing. I sometimes think I'm a gypsy nurse cuz I wanna try it all!

    I'm stumped. I really don't know. Like another said, maybe I'm just born this way and doing what I should be doing.

    I want to be a dog groomer with a fully, equipped doggy salon on my property. I'd be open 9 am to 1 pm Monday through Friday or by special appointment. No early mornings or nights. No weekends, no holidays. Heaven.

    Let's see, if my hubby wins the lottery, I'd quit and probly stop working altogether. I take that back, I'd be a professional traveler.

    Otherwise, I could become a professional student, go back to hairstyling (yes, I have a cosmetology license), or be a veterinary nurse! (just kidding about the vet nurse)

    Couldn't leave nursing, I,m doing what I want to do!! However, if ther was a gun put to my head......... I would love to have a catering business. I love to cook!! I cook and bake now every chance I get. Or maybe have a craft shop. I would also sell antiques there. Have you noticed how many of us, if we weren't nurses want to care for animals? There is no escape!! We just want to make it all better!

    I'd be a crazy cat lady, a microbiologist, a world traveler--but then I don't know what I'd do with my cats.
