Before family get togethers do any of you "brush up" on whatever new illnesses your family might be suffering from in order to be able to give out sound advice? I admit, at times I do. I'm a cardiac nurse...not an onc nurse, dialysis nurse, not a pediatric ICU nurse, not an ER nurse...geesh. It's funny how people expect nurses to know EVERYTHING but wouldn't dream of asking a dermatologist about a cardiac issue.
Am I being silly?
