I've never posted before and feel free to delete this post, but I just wanted to add my thoughts and thanks as well, I'm not a nurse, but both my Father and Mother are nurses and my husband is currently in nursing school to become an RN.
Whenever we are researching something about dh's nursing school on search engines (or have questions about nursing at all) All Nurses always pops up as a result and I get so excited because I know that I ALWAYS find the answer to what I am looking for here.
On the bad side, I'm always interrupting dh's studying to read him posts from All Nurses.com, but I have to tell you that being able to understand what he is going through better, by reading what everyone on here goes through, or does, has really helped me be more patient (especially through the studying! LOL) with this whole process.
I think, without sounding too dramatic, that these forums have really helped me be more supportive through the past couple years of nursing school, and that in turn I think helps dh to do well.
Bottom line, thank you, even from someone who isn't a nurse! And thank you to everyone who IS a nurse, everytime I've had to go to the hospital it's been the nurses who have gotten me to relax and feel better about whatever it is I'm there for.
