    Most of my friends are online...here, on a nurses yahoo group and other groups. Having three little ones and living in a fairly new city (though I lived here years ago), it's hard to make new friends. I rely an awful lot on the internet for socialization and certainly hope that changes once I start school (of course, then I won't have time for friends!)

    I meet all sorts of nice people

    at the Golf course

    at the health club

    My life outside work is soooooo removed from work. I don't have any "friends" in healthcare at all. I have friends at work, kind of, they are people I like just fine. I just don't socialize with them. But I would help any of them if they needed it. We really seem to be so different from one another. I am getting ready to take a college correspondence course with one nurse I work with. We're doing it for moral support and will be doing the lessons at my house. Other than that, that's it.

    I have acquaintances in the healthcare field...most of my friends are in Arlington, now; my children, and sometimes my wife, are my true friends, otherwise, I stay away from developing close relationships with co-workers.

    I have some friends in nursing, but not all my friends are in nursing. Some are teachers, some are SAHMs, etc. I have many acquaintances, several friends, but very few good friends....and many of my good friends are online, and I have met many in person even though we met online.

    None of my friends are nurses. I Had lots in my student days as I lived in a nurses home and it was cool cos they understood all the new and often frightening experiences I was going through. Now most of my friends are Mums and as I live in a small village I see them at school events etc. NURSE i meet at work are often so stressed they have not got time for social niceities
