Have I told you before that my 19 year old daughter is working toward her CNA? Well, she was working toward it when she was an assistant in a nursing home. The thing she liked best about that job was wearing nursing scrubs. She said they were comfortable and she could relax in them. This is HUGE from this particular daughter given her highest aspiration in high school was to work in a tanning salon. I’m so not kidding. Now she works for a medical insurance company and makes enough money that for the time being, she isn’t worried about that CNA degree. I tell her she will regret that but she’s 19. What 19 year old listens to her mom?
Sometimes I wish I worked in the nursing field because honestly the thought of wearing scrubs clothing every day, and being comfortable, every day, well, that is almost enough to get me past the idea that I would be touching people. Because I’ll be honest, if it weren’t for the touching people part and how that skeeves me out just a bit, I would totally be in the medical field. I like people. I want to help them. I just don’t want to touch them.
It really is too bad that I have to wear suits to work. I could totally pull off scrub tops and some jeans. I have seen the new tops, they are cute and they don’t look like everyone works for a pediatric dentist. There are even some stylish scrubs out there. If I could just get past that whole touching of people issue.
