Pleased you didn’t conclude I don't rate nurses!I'd disagree with you tbh about not calling them health professionals, although at the same time i think you have a valid point. I personally think its difficult to just put all nurses in the same bracket when there are so many different levels of nurses out there. There is a massive difference for example between an AIN and an EN, same with an RN and a clinical nurse. Clinical nurses are pretty much doctors by another name these days, but again, you cant really lump all doctors in the same bracket either.
I do agree though about some of these idiots who think just because they are a nurse they can pass of their opinions as gospel. I think if they got challenged about their qualifications to speak on some of these matters i think they would be found wanting.
My father was a registered nurse and later a psychiatric nurse. He thought he was roughly on par with Freud, Jung and Kraepelin but more up to date! Dad specialised in Fistio-therapy. In other words he was full of shit and an expert on the mind. Every 4-6 months I would mysteriously develop a new psychiatric 'condition' ! Thank **** the old prick didn't have the internet.
I'd have had 52 new conditions a year!
