HEY!!! Before we went all PC and let all those males into the profession we Aussie female nurses had the title of "Sister". It went with a veil, white dress and shoes and a cape for cold weather.

I introduce myself as my fisrt name and say "I will be your nurse for the day". But Australia is a very informal society and use first name basis more than last names. Even our doctors often introduce themselves as first name then last name. Especially those medical personell working with the elderly or children.

Over the years I've come to realize that people (particularly patients) have a real respect and affection for nurses. I think we ought to stay with a winning moniker.

I think 'nurse' to a patient means 'someone I can trust'.

But I still think Goddess fits.
