    If I hadn't gone to nursing school I would have pursued a career as a research scientist.

    I still might go back for a Ph.D. in epidemiology, microbiology or pathology at some point.

    I think it would be SO great to teach a class like World Civilization!

    Archeology would be fun, it's like the perfect combo: history with physical and social science.

    Hey, no kiddin'! Think about this, if you work @ a CC, you could only work T,TH or M,W,F if you wanted to. You could pick a subject like hx, that doesn't really change that much, wouldn't have to worry with constantly keeping up, you could give all your tests via scantron...lol And you probably wouldn't have to worry with keeping publications up and such.

    an FBI agent!!!

    I am sure the FBI would love to have you now. As long as you are in shape they are looking for RN's to infiltrate nursing homes in order to uncover medicare fraud.

    Give 'em a call.

    Personally I would like to be an interpreter for a major corporation. I don't speak any languages other than English right now but I think I could pick up a those romance languages pretty quickly and would like to take a shot at some of the Asian languages too.

    When I was little, I wanted to be a flight attendant to travel the world.
    Marine biologist was on my list too as well as photographer.
