I'm grateful for you crusty old bats - page 5

Nowhere else is it permissible to crack up over a death. Nowhere else are gross things normal. Nowhere else can I vent about a ream of awful prima donna patients without being told I have no... Read More

    I think it starts when eyeballing the veins of everyone in the line at the grocery store seems normal

    I admire the crusty old bats - my mom is a "crusty old bat" and I admire her for it.

    My nursing instructor is a crusty old bat and expects me to become one overnight. I'm still a newbie and I haven't earned that title yet but someday, I hope I will.

    The bad smells don't phase me, the overly anxious doctors who only want a patient's signature don't scare me... it's just those certain nurses that eat their young that freak me out. *sigh*
    Sigh. This again? On what was supposed to be a fun thread? <shakes head>

    but i thought it was we crusty, old bats who ate our young.
    we need to own that and again, wear the badge with pride.

    it's who we are and what we do.

    Good one Leslie...I guess that one got away!!! I had to laugh out loud at your post! Although, I was going to respond that as Vampire bats we don't eat our young-we just suck the blood out of them!!! Then throw the empty worthless carcasses to the side!!

    The student who posted that already has a million gajillion on-going threads on this site about her clinical instructor. Not content with all of that drama, she has now decided to hijack a thread that has nothing to do with her.

    That poor instructor has my deepest sympathies.

    Actually, WE hijacked the thread. She made one comment that was pretty much ignored for pages and then someone's back got up.

    Took the NCLEX when you had to pass more than something like I dunno, 24 questions?????
    Like with a PENCIL AND PAPER.....!!!! and you had to KNOW something!!!
    Mine was the 2 day exam..I think maybe 250 questions on morning and afternoon BOTH days!! for total of 1,000 questions...and the computer didn't stop you when it hit 75...and you could only take it twice a year at certain venues in your state!! And it took something like 6 months or so to get the results.......ahhhh, good times....................

    (order me an xtra large-but I don't wear starched underwear anymore)
