Samthg- Not sure if I want to go the NP route or nurse educator yet. Tough call, for now I just need to get a BSN as the associate degree RNs are under the educational squeeze. I love being at the bedside in the ICUs and ER, couldn't imagine leaving the excitement.
Soldierguy- Changes on hwy 50??... Not not really, it's still a whole lot of beautiful nothing. The only thing two real changes that I found upsetting were the gas stations don't seem to have anywhere near as much locally made jerky as they used to. And the other thing that pissed me off if I couldn't find any Jolt Cola to save my life. Aside from that, same road I've been riding since the mid 90's.
