My family casually make sly comments like you're so dumb your doing nursing and you have to be stupid to do nursing. It makes me feel annoyed and my brother and father know it does but continue to make the comments. They don't outright say it but they slip it into conversations.

Lol, they say all that UNTIL they end up being looked after a nurse (God forbid this happens btw). I see nursing as something I am just not cut out for (I'm going into accounting). I've never heard of people saying that nursing is dumb until today.

They just say that nursing is a useless degree money wise you end up earning the same amount as you would do without a degree and that only people who can't get into medicine do nursing.

That's nonsense.

When do you finish your degree in Nursing?

If they aren't supporting you, ignore them. If it's something you're passionate about then that should be the only thing that matters! Good luck

I agree but it's hurtful that they think of nursing and me in that way.

My mum is the same, I know how it feels :console:But I've learned to eventually understand that I can't please everyone, and should just focus on making myself be happy

So... a guaranteed job with very reasonable pay, they mean?

I agree they just don't think highly of it for some reason even though they have had experiences in hospital before and they know the role of the nurse.

What a ridiculous thing to say! they should be proud of you doing nursing. You have to be intelligent and extremely hard working. Ignore them if they are doing it to wind you up! Maybe they have some outdated ideas of what it involves. Nursing has replaced many things that doctors used to do now too!

Did you get the grades to do something more prestigious than nursing though and just chose to do it, or did you get bad grades so you had to do it?
