I would do it, for free, in underserved countries all over the world. Like a working vacation!
(When not lobbying for better working conditions for nurses, that is... ... and OF COURSE, make sure we had some $$ for the new grads.... )

I think I would also have to have a couple of of PRS's.

I'd take the money and run! Go travelling, pay off all my bills, buy two or three new houses, buy new cars for my whole family, give money to church, pay for kids' college, but work????????????????????????? Never ever as long as I lived.

I'd bring in the Eden Alternative people and run it like a REAL home, with pets, plants & so forth.

Not only NO, but HELL NO!!
I would, of course, like everyone else, pay off everything, set the kids up for life, pay off hubby's school loan...
Then.... travel, write, maybe even write about travel! Read all the hundreds of books I haven't had time to read and hire a housekeeper and a cook!! (That's me on a Royal Carribean cruise!)Last edit by TiddlDwink on Oct 21, '02

I was wondering
Would you still do this if you won the lottery?????
I was wondering would I still do this if I won the lottery. I went to play the power ball lottery today, because today was just awful and I figured why not play the lottery. The jack pot is 60 million.
As I sat and pondered how I would spend my winnings. I wondered could I really not ever nurse again???
I think I would still be a nurse somehow it is in my blood part of me. Although with a 60 million dollar bank account behind me I would definately say when, where and how I would be a nurse.
What about you????? What would you do????
Oct 31, '02Occupation: RN Case Manager Joined: Apr '02; Posts: 4,945; Likes: 27I would not work as a nurse, but keep my license.
I'd open up a club/spa just for women. All the workers would be men. Very good looking muscular men. In the front would be the salon and spa. Across the complex (separated by an olympic size pool) is the nightclub and restaurant (again staffed by men).
The nightclub would have shirtless men. The restaurant would have men with tuxedos and serve everything from vegetarian foods to the best steaks.
Nurses get 40% off at the salon/spa, free drinks at the nightclub and 20% off at the restaurant.

I might just have to budget, though, so I wouldn't ever have to actually go back to work.
