why I want to be a nurse

This post from Medscape Med Students’ Blogs and girl in greenwood made me reflect, once again, on all of those folks who think they are paying me a comment by asking, “why didn’t you just go to medical school?”

The Differential: Medscape Med Students Blogs: Therapeutic Moments

I have now gotten to the point where I actively discuss my choice to become a Nurse Practitioner by saying that, “I didn’t want to be a doctor, I wanted to be a NURSE!”

Almost embarrassing to me is the fact that I did once feel being a nurse was a failure on my part as I started my educational career with the intent on going to medical school.

It grated my nerves when the public would say, “So, are you the Flight Nurse?” when I was doing an air show as an Army Flight Medic.

Now, I proudly stand up with the battle cry:

Once a nurse, ALWAYS a nurse!

(damn, have I already written about this?)
