I find it funny that nurses think all aides want to be nurses. As a nurse aide I have to work with nurses. Nursing issues effect me , because I work in the nursing field. After reading some of these posts I am lead to believe that you think all aides are wannabe nurses. That they lack an education and endanger your reputation. AM I wrong? I work under some wonderful nurses. They do not seem to resent me and we get along great.I have also learned a lot from my nurse aide co-workers. Nursing is a field that requires people to play parts at all levels. I understand that impersonating is wrong. I also understand the dedication and hard work it takes to graduate from a four year degree. I intern at the public defenders office and I always have lots of stories to share. The nurses and I learn from each other. That does not mean however that I want to be a nurse or that their goal is to become a lawyer. We play different parts and we have different aspirations.
