Good insight, quite true, whether called or not, all humans should be treated with dignity and respect. I guess what I'm trying to say is, based on what I've seen/heard, I see a big difference in attitude between those who have true passion for nursing versus those who does it for other reasons. But difficult working environments can also be a factor. Everyone can show care for humanity in many ways, but nursing is specific. IMO, I think that many are "called" without realizing it. Maybe called to care for others at a whole new level such as nursing.
