I am a retired professional nurse. I am a
"Professional" nurse, not an amateur, based on my
crudentials, not on my paycheck. I am not a
crudentialed genealogist because I choose not to be,
not because I am not qualified. I usually donate my
services, but occassionally I get paid. I do not think
it is the paycheck that makes me professional, and I
do not think it is the lack of a paycheck that makes
me an amateur. I am what I am.
