What I want to do?

I plan on completing my education and getting a degree from Baylor to become a nurse practitioner. I want to be a nurse practitioner because I do not want to be a doctor but I still want to help people and be able to do more than registered nurse. When I am done I plan on moving to a bigger city in Texas to have more options for a place to work.
