The initial post did not intend to compare professions whereas it meant to INCLUDE another deserving profession.

You said "in an effort to facilitate comparable benefits bestowed to other respected professions," therefore inviting comparison by wanting similar benefits. However, as it has been pointed out, those other professions rarely make the same income as RNs, so why should RNs enjoy the same discounts? Usually it's just a small percentage (like 10%) anyway. I will happily take my free annual Chipotle burrito, though! 🙂

As an RN, I personally am not really interested in benefits or discounts. They dont really add up to all that much...are we talking in the ballpark of, cheaper car insurance? Points off on a mortgage loan? 25% off scrubs every Tuesday?

As an RN, what I really want, is a National Nursing Association. One giant union across the entire US with every single RN and LPN allowed to join it. That would cause a lot of entities to Recognize us. And our big fat contract. 🙂

I’m a little amazed anyone would have the audacity to mention the “benefits” that military and 1st responders receive so close to 9/11 but as you went there I will answer.

Military and first responders are given discounts and bonus because they have literally volunteered to risk their lives by choosing to do their job. While I personally think I make a difference in the lives of the people I take care of the fact remains I did not literally volunteer to die if necessary.
