Dear Sturla,

>It sounds like you are outraged...
 
Interesting that you can ascertain this from a few words on the net... I am
*fascinated* by my daughter's choice and was interested in learning more
about the field...

>First I want to say that you ask the wrong
>question. One does not know exactly what careers are open to scientists.

Obviously you're not quite as mysterious as you would like me to believe;
you listed many wonderful choices at the end of your message. I have also
received about 12 other mail replies that indicate a *wide* range of
possibilities. Very creative answers; they have broadened my knowledge base.

>If  your daugher had studied nursing she would have become a nurse; if she
>had studied law she would have become a cilisitor. But science is
different,
>there is no correct answer to the question "what do you become then?" 

Again, you have made general assumptions that stagnate at least one
distinctive profession listed above. Yes, *I* started my career with an
undergraduate degree in nursing; moved then to a Master of *Science* degree
with a focus on nursing research and psychiatry. I went on to study and
become knowledgeable in neuropharmacology. Next, developed an expertice in
community health which led to a PhD in Public Health. Also, I am board
certified as a Nurse Practitioner in 2 specialties and a Clinical Nurse
Specialist in another. My career has been dynamic and takes me where I'm
needed (gee, just like a scientist!).

Thanks for raising my BP just a little, it was *fun*,
And I really do thank you for your time and input...
Libby
