Hey all, wondering what the general trend is here.
My question is, do you talk about work when you're not at work?
The reason i'm asking is this: I'm a nursing student, my sister is an RN. She and I will always be talking about the hospital, patient conditions, latest things at work, latest rapid response (HIPAA naysayers can leave now), latest wild ABG (pH 7.06, CO2 140)
A friend / classmate of mine has two sisters in nursing, but they NEVER talk about nursing when outside of the hospital. I am wondering if this is common?
To me, nursing is more than a job, it is a lifestyle.
(Obviously there are times when you won't be talking nursing, but if you're younger sibling, niece, nephew etc is studying nursing don't you think you'd talk about it once in a while?)
Potential bias on this forum, seeing how most people online right now are not at work, so are a little more into nursing than your average Jane.
