  6. I'm a nurse...for animals?
    Just to prove my point a little further - Veterinarians are doctors. They address themselves as "doctor" and so does everyone else. By your logic, does this "Irk" you too? Yep, didn't think so.

  11. If you could do it all over again, would you choose nursing as your career?
