1. if you could be making the same amount and be offered the same advancement in pay going straight from one career to another--would you get out of nursing? what would you be doing? without having to go to school in between. just say you could pick whatever and the pay wold be the same.

    LOL Tracy!!! Maybe I missed my calling. I would be a university instructor. I would be way better than the instructors I had of course

    I've always thought it would be fun to be an animal trainer at the zoo or Sea World.

    No way! I'm right where I want to be! In fact, I went to great trouble to get right where I am, this being a second career for me.

    I'd do just what I'm doing now, but some one else would chart, go to b.s. meetings, do professional projects, make me look way good!

    I would love to work at a greenhouse. Love to be around plants and flowers. Advising people what to buy and where to plant it. I love to be in the garden!!

    A dolphin trainer (or a general zooperson), a critical care nurse at a cat hospital, a crisis line person- but not one that does on site intervention, a NP, or the person who is incharge of props at a major motion picture studio- talk about interesting people, and odd things to work with.

    I am considering going back to school for NP, but have to take a G-D- statistics course again that I've already flunked 1 1/2 times. (The second time I took it I got a mercy pass for falling asleep in class after 12h nights )
