barriehomeboy saidI'm a health-care professional and, frankly, nursing is one of the worst of our careers. The others have similar training and pay as well but we don't have to ..well..change diapers. That sounds insulting when you're talking about soldiers and sailors and the saviours of democracy, but it's the reality of nurses' work. Are you geared up for that, or willing to consider something better?
I find this incredibly ignorant. It's incredibly insulting, diminishing nurse's work to changing diapers? Fuck you, dick
I agree. I guess only a few in the field can see that nursing is a "caring" field. Changing diapers????!! We do waaaay more than that! We are advocates (from people like you btw) teachers, caregivers, and if my nursing assistant can't get to my patient - I will be more than glad to change a patient's diaper - not because, like you say, it's what the job entails - but because I chose this career for the care ethics that are not taught to other professionals in the health field.
Anyhow, dcolby, I wish your patient's a strong nurse to help defend them from ignorant frameworks like the ones you displayed just now. How the heck you work in a field of "compassion" comparing 'helping a patient gain his independence back' to 'taking out the trash' is really beyond me!!
