Happy Nurses Day!!

Hi guys,

Sorry its been so long since I've blogged... the days just seem to be slipping by. I can hardly believe my 21st birthday is in 8 days, or that I'm moving to Arizona in 15 days, or that I'm officially celebrating National Nurses Day today!

Its just craziness!

Anyway, I want to dedicate this blog to all Nurses and Nursing Students out there. Thank you all for you selfless service, your passionate heart, your healing touch, and your incredible dedication to what you do. Its true that nurses are the backbone of Hospitals. I'm proud to call myself a future nurse... what an honor.

Here is a little Nursing Student Humor:

You know your a Nursing Student when....
1. you have nightmares involving the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems

2- you walk around thinking of the names of muscles and things like that

3- you look at your co-workers and starting naming their bones

4- all of a sudden you start thinking of a&p stuff

5- when you are really tired and wanting to go to sleep your mind keep thinking of bones, muscles, tissues, and making the most weird connection among them that makes no sense other than keeping you awake

6- you touch your own bones just to make sure you remember their names

7- after taking micro you start getting grossed out about a whole bunch of things

8- You open the refrigerator door and notice that the already opened milk jug has been dated and timed and has your initials on it.

9- You keep the sterile field even when you cook dinner.

10- Your family has filed missing person reports on you during finals week.

11- You shake a person's hand and you find yourself feeling for a vein to decide which size IV catheter you would use.

12- You discuss the consistency of your patients' poop on your lunch break..and thats not weird to you.

13- Your normal friends all graduated in business or mass comm.

14- You've canceled your gym membership once you realized your Pediatrics book can double as a 10 lb weight.

15- You are determined to figure out how to administer caffeine through an IV line before finals week.

16- You know that the correct answer is not on the test and you will argue to the death for those 2 points.
