I remember the 70ths year, all my mates from high school decide to study medecine; a graduated in medecine earned a very good salary, the problem was there was studying a lot of people; many cities had faculties, but worse it was the problem that the classrooms was completely full, even in the corridor was student taking paper notes; the teachers, well I rather do not tal about them, simple I would like to comment they look more a group of loosetongued than medical professionals.
Classes looked very bored, so I decided a degree in nurse; nurse was more practical, at the end you always find a job.
I understand to filipines phisicians, studying nurse to work in USA, more ever when a Philipine never can dream to live in his country like in America.
Today I think I did the right decission, though many of my high school mated are working as phisicians today they needed to wait more time than me to work.
Working in hospitals has been to me a good choice to know people and enjoy many time.
Thinking on a professional way, i can to say that I have more knowledges than all phisicians because I stay at work many time and of course I have worked more time (many years) than them.
In short, this is the good decision.
