5Nov 26, '11 by mazyQuote from canesdukegirlNow this is an official nurse's creed that I can get on board with.I think I am going to get a t-shirt made that reads:
I am a crusty old bat

7Nov 26, '11 by Bortaz, RN, ADNI was born a crusty old bat. Aging and becoming a nurse just made it worse (better?).
