@Carolyn72: I am currently a nurse’s aide at a pyschiatric hospital.  Thankfully, my job will pay my tuition – not books though.  Anyways, I am planning to go back to school soon.  I want to become a nurse, but I’m nervous about it.  It’s a lot of things to learn and can be very overwhelming.  I do know my one major will be in psychology though.

What do I REALLY want to do though?  I’d love to continue my elementary educatin major.  I spent two years going to college for it before I decided to call it quits.  The money, the fighting for jobs, etc is not worth it to me.  I would have to be literally broke during most of my schooling because so much time is dedicated to student teaching and other sort of things.  I couldn’t imagine graduating and not being able to find a job.  So, I’ll stick with health care.

If I had a do-over on school, I’d go with a PharmD.

I would go back to be a nurse. I hate hospitals… but I see that it is a field that is always in demand. Right now my teaching credential is not doing me any good.

Definetly something in Fashion, or interior design… Anything crafty really.

If I could go back, I would consider culinary school. Not a lot of money in it unless one is absolutely amazing in the field, but pastries and food are a passion for me. 🙂

I have a Ph.D. in a science field, but if I could go back and do it again I would go to medical school and become a doctor — something more practical and with more interaction with people on a daily basis.

I would go into healthcare. I want to wear scrubs for my work clothes, have the utmost flexibility with hours and location ,and  be in demand!

@Carolyn72: All the RNs at my work told me I’m making the right decision – especially because I already have my foot in the door.

@Carolyn72: I also thought of just becoming a LPN because of being nervous about the whole RN thing, but people are trying to convince me otherwise.

if I was a millionaire I would go back to school to study medieval literature.  More realistically I would want to go for a Master in Library science…
