'So, why do you want to be a nurse?'


I was so young back then and I was asked and hadn't prepared a reply. So without any prepared answer I could only reply honestly - I talked about wanting to care for people, particularly vulnerable people. I thought my reply sounded naive and cringed a little later on when I reflected on the interview.|They seemed so officious to me. I got the job though and tbh I do still like caring for people, particularly vulnerable people.
