Take a break and have a chuckle at some of these ‘alternate reasons’ for going into the profession.

10. I love to wear white support hose.

9. I get a kick out of arrogant doctors.

8. It’s more challenging than brain surgery.

7. I get free latex gloves.

6. The scrubs are so flattering to my figure.

5. The world doesn’t need any more lawyers.

4. I actually like vending machine food.

3. Somebody has to train the residents.

2. I get to spend the holidays with my friends…at work.

1. I always wanted to say, “This won’t hurt a bit.”
