Not an RN yet but I'm first born and father is a recovering alcoholic.

I'm a middle, but there was such a gap between my older sibs and myself that I did play the elder sib growing up. I was encouraged to be responsible for anything younger, weaker, more helpless, sicker, or unable. Catholicism only reinforced that philosophy.

Although there was a lot of dysfunction in our family, it wasn't due to alcoholism, it was due to mental illness.

First born here, no ETOH in our home which was quite functional...

Same for my cousins that are nurses (2 of them), first born but no ETOH in very functional homes.

#6 (3rd female) in a family of 8. Dad is a prominent pediatrician. Parents are still happily married, no ETOH or mental illness. I'm the only sibling in healthcare.

(Following in Daddy's footsteps, I'm a peds RN!)
