Anyone ever said this to you? Someone told me recently that with my smarts I should go for something "more" like a PA or doctor. I was only too happy to explain, in a very concise manner, why I want to be a nurse. It bothers me that people think nurses aren't as smart as doctors, or that choosing nursing means settling. I guess we just have to prove them wrong.

All the time. And not just family/friends, but classmates! Because I do well in my current coursework, I suppose that means I should be doing something more rigorous? The world of nursing needs intelligent people, not just people who couldn't make it to medical school.
