The points you mentioned are valid across the globe , even in country like India. Though i would like to add “a purposeful life” as primary reason why people are willing to bear the hardship of this profession.
Great point about living a life of purpose xo

It definitely is a demanding, but rewarding field, Christy. Great to see you back!
Health care continues to be with the most job growth.
Terrific post, Christy. I knew at age 6 that I wanted to be a nurse, and the only reason was because I wanted to help people. I was pleasantly surprised to discover all the elements you’ve listed when I became an RN ❤️
Never can have enough people for healthcare. Great post Christy. Oh, and the box is on its way. <3
Nice post Christy,
and great tips. it is always a pleasure to help others in any sense
I am going back very soon! Great post by the way!
This is so true, Christy. It’s a satisfying field and essential work.
Can tastify to that :)
I love this! I think people in the health field don’t get applauded enough. They are amazing! It takes a lot of hard work and a love for people to do it! If I could handle needles, blood, and vomit I would totally consider it! I don’t think people who are coming in with blood wombs need their nurse/doctor passing out on them! LOL!! ;)
Well written Christy! Thank you for another wonderful posting. Michael
My nephew’s fiance just got her nursing degree and I’m so proud of her!
I only wish I would have chosen healthcare as a career way back. Who knew it would be so beneficial today?
Takes a special breed to really enjoy healthcare though. If it’s not a calling, they’ll likely be burned out rapidly. I see it happen all the time. 😏
Great point about burnout!
It’s a very real phenomenon, and it happens even to those of us who are dedicated to it. It’s hard work. 😃
I’m glad to be going back to healthcare starting next month ❤ it’ll always be in high demand! Great post!
