Why Become A Nurse? This Nurse Answers The Question Why She Chose Nursing Over Becoming A Doctor
When was the last time someone asked you “why become a nurse?”. It is as if being a nurse is lesser than becoming a doctor. This nurse slams people looking down on the nursing profession by saying that nursing is entirely different from being a doctor. Nursing should not be a stepping stone to becoming a doctor.
When asked why a nurse and not a doctor, she answered that she prefers the caring, psychosocial model of nursing over the strict study of anatomy that comes with studying medicine. She also prefers having more time to herself and her family. When you’re a doctor, especially if you’re in primary care, you have to take extra work home. You will also have to be on call 24/7.
