If you could go back and choose....

Hey everyone!!

If you could go back and choose a specialty or dream job (if you're not in it already), what would it be? For example, if you knew what you know now about nursing, would you still have chosen to be a nurse or another career? I would want to go back and become a pharmacist...

I worked my dream job as a stay at home mom. I was good at it and it was where my heart was happiest. Unfortunately the salary for stay at home parents is awful.

I would have not chosen nursing.

Wishing I could enter that time machine... become a hospital administrator and mandate safe staffing ratios.

I would pursue my childhood dream of being a suspense novelist. I would also be a food critic, traveler and professional college student.

However, I am not the starving writer/novelist type, so I'm a nurse as a means to an end. What exactly is that end? I really do not know at this time.

Guess I'm the oddball...I'd still be a nurse. The only thing I'd change is I would have finished my degree much earlier. I'd rather have 23 yrs under my belt than only having 6 yrs. (5 as an LPN and 1 as an RN)

This question is directed to professional nurses.
I don't think so I think it's a general question for anyone.

I would have still been a nurse. I love my patients
