Where does being a nurse fit in??? I'm technically a professional, I guess, due to the fact that I need a degree to do my job. Yet I work my tail off and I basically (more or less) follow someone elses orders when I do my job. And then all my scrubs are multicolored...that way, when someone throws-up on me, it doesn't show. I guess I'm techni-colored collar.
I am a Park Ranger for the US Government. I am a professional and work outdoors for a living. I know, I know, must be tough huh! That position is not on your list but I would guess I am professional/public service.
remf, I'm a physical therapist, which is close to nursing and I chose professional. In college my professor would always say, "you're all going to be professionals" and that stuck in my head. I guess that's why I love the E's seats-nice and firm for the spine! :wink:
