I am posting on behalf of my humble spouse (a multiple and nationally awarded RN) in an effort to facilitate comparable benefits bestowed to other respected professions that serve the general public in critical and appreciated capacities. There are several industries that offer exclusive discounts and benefits to recognized professions (such as first responders, military personnel and teachers) for the services provided in those chosen professions. Although those recognized professions have my respect, I often wonder how and why nurses have been omitted from such inclusive recognition. Can anyone help me to understand the disparity? Or better yet, please help to get nurses added to the other recognized professions.
