Here is an article published in the Online Journal of Issues in Nursing – a publication of the American Nurses Association. I found there to be numerous references to this topic within the article, and it is quite lengthy.

The article discusses the findings of a study that “explored students’ motivation(s) for entering nursing and perceptions of the importance of competence and caring in nursing.” Intelligence, altruism, and competence are discussed, among other things, including the misguided perception of nurses as “angels” in white uniforms.
