I wanted to become a neonatal nurse practitioner when I was in high school but I had a baby and went through a respiratory therapy program to make sure we would always have a roof over our head. It's been 8 years and I still think about nursing. If I went back, I'd spend time in ER, ICU and then l&d or NI.....and teach :)
I always enjoy teaching or students.
I know what nurses do more than an average applicant and still think I should've been a nurse. Should I spend the time, effort and money to get there? (as it would effect our family of now 6.)
