I'm super glad that I never went to nursing school because I would have failed. I am pretty good at caring for sick children, however, I am not so good at caring for sick adults. Is that bad?
I guess the fact that I didn't choose a career in nursing has saved a lot of people from complaining to the administration regarding my lack of caring for others properly. However, since I was in elementary education for 20 years, I would probably do well as a pediatric nurse.
Please don't ask why I am even bring this up for discussion, because I am not a nurse and don't plan on ever becoming a nurse. There, that is solved.
I am though, utterly amazed at the caring hearts of those who make a living out of caring for the sick, and constantly meeting the needs of strangers. That is such a gift.
Don't get me wrong. I love people. I love relating to people and discovering more about them. I love watching people and hanging out with people. I love talking and listening to people, I'm just not great with sick people.
All you nurses out there, rock! I wish that I was more like you.
