    You really don't get that this is for nurses? Really? Since you're a pre-nursing student why don't you go to the student part of the board where people haven't had to actually deal with patients who can't act like grown ups. And no one is judging anyone by their appearance, they are just saying if you have quite a few tattoos and piercings, whining that you don't like needles is bs. And this is where NURSES come to vent about annoying things, cause we are professionals and don't take it out on our patients. If you ever become a nurse you may understand that.
    I never mentioned anything about needles on my post. This is about sensation. My blood sugar seems to drops everytime I get blood withdrawn, so I pass out. I do not pass out by getting pierced or tattooed. What's so difficult to understand?

    It's difficult to understand why you feel the need, as a nursing student, to police our vent thread and tell us what it is appropriate for us, working professionals, to vent about.

    The irony of this exchange is that "nursing students judging nurses for venting" often comes up as a pet peeve on the general forum. I think there are whole threads about this topic.

    The fact that you are bashing nurses who are venting in a vent thread. Especially since you want to become a nurse and that you come here to learn. So learn to let people vent. If you don't like what is being posted on the nurse threads then stay in the pre nursing threads. Our jobs are extremely stressful and to have someone say something negative on a nursing board who isn't a nurse rubs a lot of people the wrong way.

    Tattoos, piercings, IVs, and blood draws done to me. No problem with any of them.

    As an emergency nurse? 99% of my pediatric patients under 10 handle IVs and blood draws. Adults are 50/50. Adults who whine about IVs or blood draws are definitely a big pet peeve for me.

    If expressing the difference between tattoos and piercings, IV's and blood withdrawals is considering bashing, I honestly don't even know what to tell you.

    I am on these forums for learning purposes. I don't need to be a nurse in order to let someone know they are incorrect about something. If people bother you so much, you hate it when people whine, then maybe you're in the wrong profession. I find it puzzling when nurses are insensitive to even the most reasonable things. I understand everyone elses frustrations because those are all ridiculous things, things that would probably frustrate me too if I was a nurse. However, why judge someone by appearance and say they shouldn't whine because of it?

    Would a mod care to point me to the rules? Is this a nurses-only forums? Maybe I missed the memo.
    So this wasn't a passive aggressive statement that you made? You weren't trying to ruffle any feathers telling people they shouldn't be a nurse?

    And considering I have experienced all three "sensations" it does bother me when people whine about getting an IV. That is one of many pet peeves I have along with a whole lot more.

    Oh and I forgot to add. I suffer from hypoglycemia and make sure I have the appropriate meds or a snack to help combat a drop in my blood sugar.

    Okay are you really this obtuse? You got your panties in a bunch when I mentioned it was a pain when tattoo'd pierced people complained about needles, how do you not understand that? And there are a lot of people who pass out after giving blood, that is very different than an IV with lab draws. Once again this is not a forum for patients to complain, it's a safe place where nurses can vent. Why are you here?

    Right? I love that venting about patients in a safe appropriate place makes you a horrible person who shouldn't be a nurse. Sigh.

    No, I think doeRAYmee was referring to:

    Rofl! Wow. Uh, I've been a patient? You know, one of the people you ridicule on the job?

    Enjoy the lack of patient-related things to vent about while it lasts. If you do become a nurse, you will certainly have the occasion to express frustration about your job at some point, even if you are lucky to land in an area you love straight out of school.

    I don't think some of you realize that this particular forum isn't locked for only nurses to view. Perhaps if a patient's or pre-nursing student's comments bother you so much (nevermind how much yours bother me,) perhaps allnurses.com would consider creating a locked forum where only licensed nurses are allowed to sneer and vent even the smallest of things about their chosen career. :-)

    Ok. I think this thread has reached a logical conclusion. Just a word though: while everyone is welcome here at AN, please understand that our site is geared towards nurses. We are not being disrespectful when we vent. Think we will give this a cooling down time.

    <- Covered in tattoos and have been pierced several times.

    1) You are comparing three entirely different things, three entirely different sensations.
    2) You dont stop blood flow with tattoos or piercings.
    3) You don't draw tubes of blood or put anything directly into the bloodstream with tattoos or piercings.
    4) Half the time I get a nurse that pokes me at least 5 times before they get a vein, half the time they have to poke me somewhere on my hand instead after poking me several times on my arm.
    5) My guess is you dont have any tattoos or piercings.
    I have tattoos and piercings & still call BS on the grown babies that have both but whine over an IV stick or blood draw. MAN UP
