    then i really dont understand why pharmacists get paid more than nurses do. they certainly dont have to touch bodily fluids

    Two things, and that's all i'm saying on here:

    1) Body fluids are a part of the job, it's either get used to it or get out.

    2) There is no EASY street in nursing school, so there's no point of even attempting to find one. And there's a reason for that. If it were easy, then ANYONE could be come one.

    And one more thing:

    We're not pharmacists, therefore pharmacy questions really should be directed at pharmacy-related websites. Nor are we comparable. Apples and oranges, eh?

    why is there a generalization that pharmacist school is harder academically than that of the nursing? im not making it up and it is not my opinion. it's just what i HEAR. i also hear "pharmacists get paid a lot because of their rigorous education"

    calm down. i was being sarcastic :uhoh21:
    This website has a forum for sarcasm - it's called "the break room" - and I think the reason why many of us are getting so PO'd is because of the tone of all your posts. We've told you time and time again over the past few days what nursing is really about, and you obviously don't want to deal with it. There are many other ways to help people (teaching, for example) that you can consider, yet you keep bugging us to try and find you a way around touching body fluids as a nurse. It's not going to happen! If you really have this problem with this stuff, believe me, you won't get through your first semester of nuring school clinicals.

    it's better to have lots of resources. it's called doing a research

    and too many nurses have this mindset that just because you touch bodily fluids it's offensive when a student does not want to touch them. just because i said i dont want to touch them is not going to allow me to avoid them once i go into nursing. i said im over it and im gonig to deal with it. it's you who are repeating statements

    Wow, that was easy. When you start nursing school and have to clean up your first explosive diarrhea, it should be easy as pie! :chuckle

    I think we've reached the end of useful discussion on this topic; I will close the thread before it deteriorates any further than it already has.

    I realize the OP made herself a tantalizing target, but she deserves the same flame-free environment as anyone else. And, to the OP: if you find yourself on the defensive again, instead of counter-flamming, report the post to the moderators. Concentrate on your schooling.
