You know you're a nurse when...

You have textbooks with pictures of organs/genitals laying around
Your friends/family call you for any little ailment
You know that most things can be treated with acetaminophen and/or ice
You have a BURNING HATE for WebMD and all other "medical websites" and the patients that come in already "knowing" their diagnosis and argue when you or the doctor have a different opinion. (Whew that got a little heated)

You dread computer charting updates

Your friends tell you they're idea of a gross story, you aren't impressed
You can easily spot mistakes on TV shows involving medicine. (When Walt "restarts his IV" on Breaking Bad with the needle.... except there AREN'T needles inside an IV)
You can always win the "I had a bad day at work" argument. Feces on your scrubs, anyone?
You always shrug off being sick but insist anyone else should seek treatment asap. That sinus infection isn't going to take care of itself, buddy.
Weekends mean nothing to you anymore
You don't take the little things for granted

Haha my moms a nurse and any time any symptom pops up she's the one I call. I'm like "mom my eye is twitching is it gonna fall out?!"

Amie said...

Very funny! I can definitely agree with many of these as I work in healthcare too! And question, where do you find all the funny short videos?

brooke lyn said...

always blame the fart on your patients!

Renee said...

I've been doing some "new blogger" searching today and that first picture up there is a great way to draw peoples attention and to get them to stick around! :)

I am SO over people trying to tell people how to do their jobs, in any case. I mean people try to tell me how to do my job and they nothing about it, just like with yours. LIKE STOP. and the farting picture, DED.

Hahaha! This is too cute!
I have so much respect for those in the medical field. We literally couldn't live without you.
Thanks for errything.

Soooo does this mean I should stop texting my (nurse) best friend with random symptoms?! I have a fear of what WebMD will say so I find texting nurses the next best thing. I'm now thinking they may not appreciate my questions.

Cristen said...

so true! i ALWAYS win the "oh your day sucked? let me tell you about how my day was...before 8am." what kind of nursing do you do?
