But I read one more post where people say they aren't into nursing for the money, I am going to scream.
Seriously? Is anyone THAT
NOBODY does work for free, out of the love of their hearts, unless they're independently wealthy and need something to do, giving back to their fellow man and all that.
All these people who are horrified at those who do nursing or doctoring or lawyering or any other profession for the money -- really??? And you personally would do it for free because you love your fellow man so much?
Don't get me wrong. I'm all for helping one's fellow human along their road of suffering and trying to help them as we are able, I've done it for years. But I would not do all the down and dirty work of nursing for someone I didn't personally love or respect for free
And when they say they're not in it for the money, that's what it implies to me
, that they'd do it for nothing
if they had to.
Anyone with an ounce of sense in their head picks a career that they have interest in AND
pays enough to live on!!!!! You don't see lines forming to dig ditches for free. BUT.... a lot of people are taking up technology type jobs - interesting, not dirty and they pay decently.
Maybe I just didn't get enough caffeine this morning, but I read several posts in a couple different threads about how the money didn't mean a thing to them and it makes my brains curdle!! Horse freakin' feathers!!!!!!!!
(And no I'm not in financial difficulties and yes I make decent money).

I think that the majority of the goody-two-shoes club have a spouse that supplies the money or still asks mommy and daddy for money. Nursing is a "lark" for them.
I know a few that I went to school with. One will rely on mommy and daddy forever as that one is in her 30's and often remarks "my parents will pay for it". Another's husband has millions - bought school work from past graduates, dinners/lunches with instructors, etc. They will soon come up with some reason that working as a nurse won't fit their schedules... bad thing is they took up space that should have gone to someone else in school and will give hiring a NG more bad press, as they don't know what the **** they are doing clinically.
