    Ok, I'm first born: still waiting to be that RN
    My father was not ETOH abuser. Verbally abussive maybe (but many were then). He is the only one that does recognize an LPN as a nurse. Unlike so many other people who say we are "not real nurses". I guess he was thrilled I was the only one that not only graduated from HS but also from college.I was the first in our family.

    In my first day of graduate school, they asked us how many were first borns or "onlies". 28 out of 30!

    They didn't ask details about our family histories.

    Speaking for myself (psych RN), I am first born out of 4. My father is bipolar and self medicates with alcohol, but is not an alcoholic.
