It's not worth your energy.  If someone doesn't understand the difference to societal contributions, between nurses and lawyers, they  are never going to get it.

My feelings exactly.

I was actually arguing on Skype with a few family members about this they are Lawyers, Engineers, and Accountants. First they thanked me for my service but then they were like they should have a dedicated week for Accountants, and Lawyers. I think through this pandemic they are getting jealous because healthcare workers are getting so much attention. I am not eager for the attention, in fact as a new Nurse, I just want to learn and get better everyday.

I think it’s odd how much jealousy you seem to be encountering towards nursing.

Yes, I have the same issue as well. I feel like everybody is getting jealous just because we get more attention, even though it’s just the nature of the job. The other day I was talking to my relative about jobs, and they told me the process that they went through beauty school, how hard it is, and that it was so much harder than nursing school. I was like...okay... haha

I don't know have you ever tried to cut hair or worse had a bad haircut.

I was going to say the same thing. I don't necessary see nursing as some kind of "Calling." It's a job, nothing more, nothing less. I make my living doing it - While appreciation is nice it is not expected.

I love my career but was just talking to my mom about this. We add so much nostalgia and magic to the nursing "calling". I literally went into nursing because massage therapy was full.
