Brain on the top, spine down the back.
Interesting -- but I think it's still about the money. As a technical writer, I can (or could, if I could find a job right now :-\) make anywhere from $70-90K as a TECHNICAL WRITER -- a dull, comfortable job where I just sit at my desk tapping on a keyboard most of the day, with time out for meetings and discussions with subject-matter experts read: computer geeks). Basically the same money an RN makes -- for doing MUCH harder work. And my job is MUCH lower-stress, and the consequences of screwing up much less severe (usually zero -- worst case I've ever had, I might have had to re-print a book, if I'd fessed up to messing up the index, which I didn't, and I don't think the client noticed)...

Yes... interesting is a good word for it.hhmmm...
Urbie:I was a technical writer in the Midwest, and if I could have made $70-90K, I would never have tried nursing.Sitting in meetings with the nerds sometimes is horribly, horribly boring.
