I use to constantly say I'm just a nurse, mitigating the complexity and comprehensive components that make a nurse. If you are a nurse you know a lot goes into being a nurse, late night study sessions, ATI, NCLEX, went into you becoming a nurse. That was the easy part, now its the real part. Taking the foundations of nursing and applying them to real life circumstances is complex. Instead of saying I'm just a nurse, from here on out I'm a nurse. One would think its just wording but I will give you an example that words matter from one of my favorite shows. Side note "Dwight is not a loser"
