"Why do you want to be a nurse anyway? They're doctors skivvies!"
This was what a friend of mine said to me while I was at the bookstore buying some books on Nursing.
I just laughed it off there and then but it only really hit me while I was at home reading the nursing skills book I bought. It has made me so mad that I needed to come straight on here and vent!
I don't think in anyway shape or form that a nurse is a doctors skivvie. Nursing is a profession in its own just as medicine is a profession in its own right.
People [he included] obviously think nurses are hired by doctors! UGH!! I'm that mad right now I can't continue writing this..!
He's in college studying to be an English teacher..
Skivvy: a female domestic servant who does all kinds of menial work. It's used as a slang word sometimes in the UK and Ireland.
