What would be your IDEAL Nursing-related job?

  1. i would probably say my ideal nursing situation would be to work as a nurse in a private doctors office and/or pregnancy clinic...or to be a nurse teacher! :d even a nurse who does house calls...that sounds like fun! i would like to do house calls for the disabled or seniors. :heartbeat what about you? what is your ideal nursing job? er? school nurse? psychiatric? travel ? per diem? 3 twelves or 5 eights? goverment? union? corrections? military? legal nursing consultant?etc?

    it seems like there are so many options for nurses out there!

    (well ignoring our current economic stoop @ least)

    When you refer to "house calls " that would be Home Health just for your information.

    that sounds a lot better than "house calls" lol! but yes, basically, what i would be doing is making house calls in the home health industry.....hmmm...or we can call them "home visits".

    I'd love to be a long distance flight nurse. Unfortunately, I don't have what it takes, mentally or physically.

    So I do what I can and leave the adventures to the younguns.

    My ideal job would be ICU nurse (as I was for many years) with ambulatory surgery (what I do now) hours. Miss ICU like crazy but I work M,T,W and no holidays.

    Exactly what I did for almost 20 years, work in NICU. BUT, I would NOT want to be pulled to any other unit!
