Thanks for the giggle. There are... literally... HUNDREDS of jobs that require licensure and continuing education outside of nursing. Licensure is a 'protecting the public from incompetence' thing....not a 'giving my life for my job' thing.
Also...just to be clear:
"The ANA states nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations."
LOTS of different aspects to nursing besides "providing care for the sick and infirm".
