The image of nursing: The handmaiden


i have worked with doctors from all around the globe for 40 years and been raised and lived in a doctor's household for 50 years and in a medical social environment but never have i been made to feel inferior as a nurse or female nor had my professional opinion not listened to or accepted by any of them. the only times I have met disrespect is from senior nurses and some peers who also give the same treatment to their juniors, medical colleagues and worse still their patients. it seems to be a question of attitude and if you treat others with respect this will be reciprocated.
