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


I will be asking this question today as I have for the last few days and it still surprises me that candidates come for interview not having thought about 'why' they wish to be a nurse. We are a profession with its historical roots in the idea of 'vocation'. I still want to know that people who want to be nurses - care and enjoy working with people who need some support from us.
