Almost everyone I know was in some way recruited into the profession. I know one nurse who worked as a CNA taking care of a rich old man. He told her that all the nurses had that she didn't have was a license. And in his will he provided for her to go to nursing school. What a trememdous , life changing gift.
Jefe, how dare you do what makes you happy!
In your liberal downward mobility model we should all just stay put and not work toward bettering ourselves.
No one tells them what their career path should be. But when you see someone who is clearly capable it certainly is appropriate to let them know that. Most of the nurses I know were recruited. In fact recruiting was a fairly large part of my job when I worked in the college. Each of us had to show documented proof of at least 4 formal recruiting activities. If you want talent you have to go out and find it, particularly in a field that has been seen for so many years a beneath the dignity of women.
And it is still a country where freedom of speech is allowed. Won't be long under YOUR model, though.
You being a patient and telling practitioners that they're in the wrong field takes gall. Your working in a college (Harvard, I assume) and having a job requirement for recruitment is something completely different. It's not apples and oranges, it's apples and hubcaps.
And you clearly don't have any idea what my model of anything is, so please spare yourself the embarassment.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, ... That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men,"
-Declaration of Independence
Two truths that many Americans seem to have forgotten:
1. Men are endowed by God with inalienable rights.
2. Government's purpose is to secure man's God-given rights.
