When someone mocks you for being a nurse

  1. 0
    I just had a really ****** night where I was mocked for going to school to be a nurse. I can't explain how frustrated and ******* ****** off I get when people mock me for my decision to be a nurse and make a positive difference in people's lives. I feel like so many people think nurses just put band aides on people's fingers. I hate this and just needed somewhere to vent, people are idiots, if there weren't nurses the healthcare system would collapse faster than a ******* popped balloon.

    Don't even let it bother you. Just be confident in who you are and the profession you have chosen. Those who mock are usually ignorant and know little about what nurses actually do. A lot of my friends gave me crap for going to nursing school but now I am the one about to graduate with a BSN with a great job and bright future ahead while most of them either A) Got some random degree and can't find a job or B) didn't graduate and still live off their parents with no real future. Oh and they hate when we are out at bars and all the girls love talking to me about wanting to go to nursing school and think its awesome that I will be a nurse. Let them talk ****, it doesn't bother me at all. "Haters gonna hate Brah"

    If you want to get cocky and get back at them, all you have to say is:
    a) Yeah? Well, I probably make more money than you, and my job will never be outsourced, nor will I ever have a hard time finding one myself.
    b) I got to help deliver a baby today (substitute that with something else meaningful if you want). What was the high point of your job today? Not quite baby-delivery-epic? I don't think so.
    c) Girls, girls, girls. Need I say more?

    .... JUST .... PUNCH them in the face

    And then when they are on the floor oozing teeth, blood and other bodily fluids BET they will be very thankful that there is a trained nursing professional in the house.

    and yeah as someone already pointed out you dont get a better guy to girl ratio in any Uni program than with Nursing. Basically the opposite of total sausagefest that Engineering is. Maybe they were Engineering majors and just bitter? that would explain it

    I shrug my shoulders and say "sorry I had the initiative and planning to make a positive change in my career path, and
    I'm happy with my decision. I feel like I'm doing good work and have contributed positively to society. I did ___ and the patient and family really appreciated it. Now about that retail/office/___ job you keep complaining about...) "

    (Caveat: I think people in retail are doing important and necessary jobs. I worked many such jobs myself. But, if people are dumb enough to open up their mouths in such a rude and ignorant manner, I'm going to respond accordingly).
