I have a friend who is a registered nurse. I was a bit surprised to learn that she actually pursued the course because she was and still is afflicted with a heart ailment and asthma. I have seen her bouts with asthma and those were horrible. I felt so sad and sorry for her then.
So, I was really happy and surprised that she actually became a nurse. Albeit, she is a non-practicing professional who does not wear a nurse uniform as often as she would love.
I told her she can either continue her nursing degree by being a professor or a private nurse on call. At least that way, she can still practice what she learned from nursing school.
