Well we are talking about two different egos,Im refering to the one where people say "hes one an ego trip" or has a "big ego"

Oh..ok...I think one must have a healthy ego in order to be a nurse. One must also be wiling to exert a certain amount of power (as is needed when directing staff, freaked out families and egocentric MD's) and influence is needed also when dealing with people in all the disciplines that help care for our pts.
One doesn't need to be self centered but rather DOES need to be well centered. I think a good nurse not only nourishes their work side but also their home life. Take care of your physical, spiritual (not necessarily religious) and sexual self.
Thats all I have to say.

Nitzche didnt appeal to me, I found more life enhancing material from THE ART OF WAR. And as far as ego and super ego this resides in all of us..
