There are implications here for human resource development, which require fuller attention to changes in occupations and the sense of identity that attaches to them. The changes in nursing have led to a crisis that might have been foreseen with more attention to the nature of the identity of the nurse and, in particular, a greater appreciation of the understanding of what constitutes a professional identity. Other occupations and those in charge of their destinies might learn some valuable lessons by examining the effects of changes on nurse identity.
