    What Attracted You To The Field of Nursing? I am in general always concerned about humanity and life. However, I was considering other fields until I discovered that nursing was a profession that required extensive knowledge and skill and that through this I would be able to be an advocate for quality healthcare. I made that decision 25 years ago without any regrets.

    Originally, after the service as a corpsman. Nursing attracted me one as a job I like doing and two as a place to meet women. I ended up married to a nurse and still in it 4 decades later. Must have been a good decision.

    Job security played into it for sure, and the pay isn't too shabby either. Not many places where you can earn $20-30 plus an hour off the bat with a two year college degree and nursing license.

    Make no mistake, we do work for it. Like a plumber, we earn our pay working in sometimes ugly working conditions.

    Actually, I was semi-joking about the money. The reason I went into nursing was because I was frustrated by the invisible lines of scope of practice between my prior field, respiratory therapy and my current field, nursing. Now I'm frustrated again...
