I have created this topic about nursing profession reputation. My interest is to know nurses' opinions about why the nursing profession's reputation is not improving?
I would start first.
From my observation and experience, my experience is insufficient to provide a cohesive opinion since I only joined nursing in December 2019 and am still on my training program provided by the facility. That being said, sharing my opinion many might agree on, and many might disagree, which is fine to have your opinion questioned and be enlightened by others experience that being said, I get to my opinion. Professionally.
If we examined the reputation of engineering ( computer, mechanical, etc.) and other professions on we found out that society respect them more than the nursing profession my opinion is that due to the fact the influence of that profession on society shown and change people lives and people tend to appreciate those changes happened fro the outcome of working on that profession, in contrast, nursing true that we save lives but the understanding of the work and interaction from nurses to society less than engineering and others profession not necessary direct way but it can be indirect as well through product and services they provided for the society if we could overcome that issue, the work environment will be way better for nurses. The market will value nurses more; therefore, salary will be increased as a society, and the market knows what profession.
Do you agree with my opinion? If no, mind if you share your opinion
