    Sorry folks, I saw the title and thought it was about the book. And about something important.
    I'm so glad I don't watch TV (except for hockey of course)

    I dislike Grey's anatomy. I watched it once and thought it was pretty stupid, I didn't catch the episode where they talk down about being a nurse. I think the characters are annoying. ..I prefer ER, the nurses arent portrayed as being stupid because their career choice didnt involving 4 plus years of schooling. It annoys me when your viewed as being dumber than a MD, when I think nurses do more work than a actual MD, they spend more time with the patient, the doctor spends maybe 10 minutes with you. I would like to see it cancelled, but I believe its getting rave reviews (i think, not to sure..Hate the show so I don't pay much attention to anything having to do with it) Also, Scrubs was much better than Grey's.

    Judging from the length of the "syphyllis line," the Intern or the nurse or both appear to have been pretty busy :chuckle :chuckle :chuckle :chuckle

    I know, that was funny.

    I can't imagine continuing to work someplace where you've had a sexual relationship with someone and then broken up . . . AND gotten an STD. :uhoh21:

    (I've actually seen this happen in real life)

    I've seen it too. When I worked in No. CA (about an hour north of SF) our "big house" had a family practice residency program of 27 FP residents. There were so many relationships among the residents, the residents and the nurses, the nurses and the attendings, it was hard to keep it all straight. And there were few secrets either. I'm so much wiser (and older!) now. :chuckle

    ..I'm really hoping that they just think that this happens at actual hospital settings... And didn't bother to do any research before writting the show. I don't think that every single doctor thinks that a nurse is lower than them ( I hope not)

    And they actually have an LPN (Malikh - sp?) and he's just as cool as the RN's.So YEAH! Go ER again

    I have 2 favorites; ER, Trauma, Life in the ER, and Untold Stories from the ER, actual stories told by the doctors who experienced them.

    Grey's Anatomy is getting more humurous, though. But first of all, I don't like the oriental doctor's character. She appears to be a cold, uncaring person. I would not like to have a doctor like that in real life. But I thought the Chief was the one who had it and passed it down the ranks. His wife cheated on him, but didn't tell him, because she wanted him to think it was his??? But his doc did, and the boy was devastated. Then when the doc whose wife introduced herself to the doc's girlfriend, made me laugh. The intern was shocked because aparently he didn't tell her he was married. I would not want to be the recipient of yon wife's wrath.:chuckle

    I must say I only caught the last 20 mins and I love it. After I get my BS in nursing I am going to medical school. It has always been a dream of mine. That show made me realize that everything I do and all the courses I take is for that goal. Just the thought that can be me...
    OK. I read this entire thread to make sure this hasn't been covered already. If you want to be a physician, why do you feel you need to go to nursing school? It would seem to me that that would be a lot of wasted time and expense. But, then again, I don't know, I'm not standing in your shoes . I just had to ask.

    Instead of going to pre med or getting a degree in something totally unrelated to medicine...nursing is the way to go. Not only can you work while you're in med school....you gain valuable insight into both sides of the field..nsg and medicine. You need some kind of degree...nursing is it for me! Of course I'm in nursing right now but I'm leaving the door open.

    I know you werent asking me directly but I thought I'd answer anyways. Maybe Dorris has other reasons?

    But, won't you still have to complete a premed curriculum to get into medical school, even if you have a bsn?

    No pre med needed here or available here. No MCAT needed either. You can apply in your 3rd year from law school if you want (as long as it's a BSN program) and get accepted. Of course you will need to have the pre reqs from high school already and you need astronomically good grades. The whole idea behind this move by our University is to get a wide variety of doctors with a broader view than just the stick in the mud medical aspect. They welcome older students who've been out of school and bartending for 15 years before returning to school. More to life than medicine when going into medicine here lemme tell ya.
