If I weren’t an ECE graduate, I may be in a medical field like a nurse. Most of my cousins are nurses and med techs, sometimes I wonder how I ended up taking an engineering course which is a male-dominated field. Then I suddenly remembered that I’m afraid of blood and being inside a hospital often makes me sick, maybe because of the smell.
Back then, I pictured a hospital filled with nurses in their boring white lab coats and nursing uniforms. I can only imagine how hard it is to move around wearing immaculate white clothing. I find it too uncomfortable.
At present, we all know that nursing is one of the most in-demand courses, not only here in the Philippines but also abroad. Hence, plenty of nursing schools opened and so many nursing students and graduates that it almost reached a saturation. Hospitals in the Philippines now have plenty of younger nurses compared before, they maybe fresh graduates getting some experience for their course. And in keeping up with the times, scrub uniforms now catches the fancy of younger generation. They now come in a variety of colors, not just white, and also fun prints and patterns. It’s definitely an improvement that nurses enjoy and also patients like me too, they will surely pop out in those white hosptal walls and will add cheer to any hospital environment.
Now, who says nursing isn’t fun?
