Putting Things in Perspective- “Nursing is a Calling” or “Nursing is just a job”

What’s your perspective? To the new and not so new nurse, your perspective plays a huge role in how you view your profession. Perspective could be your cup is half empty or half-full

What’s your perspective?

How do your view nursing? How you view it can be a determinant in how you live it. Never allow anyone to make you feel guilty regardless of what perspective you choose.For some, nursing is a calling and they embrace it that way but for others, nursing is just a job and they too embrace it that way. Both sides do an equally good job. Where it becomes a problem is when one side chooses to guilt the other about not having a calling for nursing and “doing it all for money”. Remember both sides are getting paid.

Find your truth and live it. Nothing is more demoralizing or soul shattering than living a lie to impress people that you may not even like!

So to the nurse for whom nursing is a calling, continue the good work and for the nurse with nursing as a job, continue the good work. Just because a person’s perspective is different from yours, it does not make it any lesser true for them.

But to both sides, live and let live!
