I have grown up planning on going into engineering. I loveeee science and math! However, once I became a mom I decided that an engineering career might be harder to start with a child. So, I decided to go to school for nursing since medical sciences really interest me and the schedule is really appealing. I am in nursing school (BSN) and I am starting to feel like bedside nursing isn't for me. The idea of being a nurse that works in research or with engineers really interests me. Do any engineers have experience working with nurses or medical personnel? Any engineers with experience in Biomedical engineering? Are you employed through a research institution or hospital? Or by a medical device manufacturer? Do the nurses collaborating/working with the engineers need any additional education? What can I do to be qualified? Are there any jobs or internships that would help while I am in school? I really don't know how to get into this field (I'm in CO). Biomedical engineering (BME) really interested me so I am considering going to get a minor in BME and if I decide to go the engineering route later I can always get my masters in BME. Would any other minors be useful? Chemistry? Engineering? Math? Physics? Biology? How helpful would a minor be? If it's not that helpful I would rather not have to cram in an extra 20-30 credits while I am in nursing school. Any other fields that work with nurses? Pharmacology and chemistry really interest me as well. Any one in research that works with nurses?
