    No, But do know from a screen name that a fellow classmate is on here. 100% sure. It's fine though- she doesn't know I know and she doesn't know why my screen name is what it is.

    I found out that the program coordinator of my school is on allnurses. One day she came into our class and said "Thank you to whoever is posting helpful information about our school on allnurses.com". I'm pretty sure she knows it was me since I use my first name...good thing I didn't vent lol

    I tell so many people about this site it wouldn't be hard for my classmates to figure me out. Especially when I have vented specifics about a few of them. Which I was fully aware they might realize it was them.

    Psht, only post i made about someone else that may be figured out who it is, is a classmate from a year ago. And i use my first name so it would be easy to figure out, seeing as though Jenni isn't very common (unlike Jenny). But i could care less, it's a hot topic to talk about concerning her anyway

    to all you folks who use your first name (or other easily identifying characteristics) in your username...i'm curious- are you ever worried that being identifyable on AN is going to bite you in the butt? i'm stilly only a student nurse but i'm so afraid i'd slip up and say ONE little thing that might offend ONE little classmate or instructor or supervisor and BOOM all of a sudden my dreams of nursing (at least in the area i live in?) are DONE.

    are you guys ever tempted to change your screen name? two things i've learned about people: you never know what little minor thing might offend someone and you never know who's going to end up being an exaggerating tattle tale...

    No. i never state where i am from,where i work, or where i went to school. my profile says in from Minnesota but thats cause i was born and raised in Minnesota. So now we have it narrowed down to 49 states that i could be from. I'm pretty sure there are many other Jenni's in those 49 states that work as a nurse.

    now if i had a very very unique name, i wouldn't.

    Thankfully, I have had nothing to vent or complain about yet (I'm lucky, I know), but I think in the near future I will be changing my username to make myself more anonymous. You never know who may be reading, and what I think may be a minor vent could come back in bite me in the a** one day. You know the sayings...It's better to be safe than sorry, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, etc.
