Most employers aren't interested in your motivation for working, just that you do a good job and meet their job standards. Nursing should be no different. The problem in nursing is the Martyr Mary types who want you to believe as they do that caring for the sick is a privilege and can only be done well by those that have the caring calling and that we should overlook safe working conditions, adequate compensation, and respect from patients and management for this privilege, something intelligent adults do not accept as logical. I believe that every person with a healthy mental attitude derives satisfaction from helping other people regardless of profession. Nursing is not special in that regard. Again, the source of irritation is not that you became a nurse because you care, it's the inevitable backlash when others tell thousands of competent professionals they're not as good as those who have a calling for something. We would all like to be the total package of caring, compassion, and competence but genetics rules... You are who you are and you adapt to be successful.
