Profession or Occupation
Question posted by: Angie on 07/20/2012 |
For my Professional Role Development course, we’re having a discussion about whether nursing is a profession, or an Occupation. I’m very interested in hearing experienced nurses’ opinions on this. Which would you say, and – more importantly, why?
In my mind a profession is something you ARE and and occupation is something you DO …. What do you think?
Thanks for any feedback!
