I'm just wondering if I'm the only one. I am a peds onc RN and i LOVE my job. I love how children are so resilient and they truly are inspiring. I often get asked if I have children and when I say no, I hear "you will be a wonderful mother."
I guess people assume I want kids because I work with kids. The truth is that I have no desire to have children. I love interacting with the kids at work and I know I'm a great peds nurse, however, being a nurse is not the same as being a mother.
Are there any other peds nurses out there who are childless by choice?
