Over my years at Ricochet, I’ve been very plain about my choice of career. It’s my handle. Most nurses feel similarly; being a nurse isn’t just a job. It isn’t just a career. It’s an identity. Much like the military, nursing school tears you down to rebuild you in the form of a nurse.
We adopt this willingly at first, grudgingly later, then with resignation, then with acceptance, and later, far later, with a touch of regret, perhaps.
