hi babyfiona! i'm a nurse and i should say that it is indeed a noble profession. every nurse should be proud of what his profession. not only is it a profession but it is also a calling. however, i also believe that there are so many profession out there that are very noble too. so it's hard to say that nursing is the noblest. teaching i think would rank higher than nursing. but being a preacher for me, is also ranks higher than a teacher. so i don't really know. i think it's safer to say that nurse is ONE of the the noblest professions.

Viva nurses! lol I am a nurse too.. Yeah. Our profession deserves to be included in one of the noblest professions if not the noblest.haha Nursing is not a simple profession. It is a very complex one, dealing with patients, patient's relatives, doctors, fellow nurses and the like. Pressure here and there. A life will always be at stake in your hands....

To me, it all depends on the love and honesty that you give to your profession that makes it noble. I couldn't set a particular criterion that makes one profession the noblest and superior above the rest. I am a nurse too, but I consider as noble as the others. My father used to be a soldier; my sister is a teacher and my brothers are all engineers, yet to me they are all noble and in fact noblest in the roles they play. What should be of greatest concern for us is the purity of intentions and the love and honesty we give to our profession.

I think teaching. Because from teachers all sort of other great profession come along. teaching teach pupils the wisdom of life and make them open their heart to the world in front of them and at same time nurturing future society citizen. When teacher teach good, then there will be more great citizen than bad one. My opinion only.

I think it still depends on the person performing the profession.=D The nobility is best seen on the person who handles the job, not solely on the job specification.. =D So whether we say a certain profession is the noblest (say, nursing), and a nurse does not perform his duties well; his purpose for taking up the profession is perfectly useless. I'd rather consider a pedicab driver who still performs his duty despite the heavy rain than a teacher who is unprofessional and has favoritism in class. I'd rather say that a taxi driver who returns a wallet to one of his passengers nobler than a lawyer who tries to manipulate the court decision just so to gain money from his client. =D So it does not really depend on the profession, it all depends on the person =D Whatever job or profession you have, one should strive to be honest and dedicated enough on his calling. =D Take care God bless! =D

It feels good when we do good deeds towards other people. It is a noble thing to do, but some people will never understand the essence of being such. They are not open with this kind of advocacy.
