    I don't understand people who need the help of strangers to make simple decisions like, "Should I work days or nights?" Which do you want to work?

    Or should I have a baby/another baby/stay at home with baby or work? Good lord, don't let strangers make life changing decisions for you!

    And no don't have a baby. Get a cat. Cats are amazing

    "ICU/ED/NICU/Flight nursing are the most coolest/beatest/glamorous nursing specialities ... whyyyy would anyone want to do med surg/psych/rehab/school nursing? That's not TRUE nursing."

    ENOUGH already, people. We all work hard.

    My favourite. What unit is most important, most glamourous, most exciting? Or sometimes, which unit is easiest because I don't want to work hard.
    And how can I get out of working weekends and holidays?

    Oh! "Should I go to (insert specific college nursing program here)?"

    ... well, I don't know, should you? I live 5000 miles away from that state, you tell me.

    "Should I go into nursing?"

    I don't know. Are you a serial killer or anything like that?

    Or How about: I can't get a job anywhere, I have filled out soooo many applications and I am not even getting an interview. The managers should at leasts call me to tell me why I didn't get an interview. They are so unprofessional. Oh, and I only filled out 5 or 6 applications. But they should still call me and I won't relocate because I only want to work at this particular hospital.

    I saw the title of this thread and thought, "Maybe someone else besides me is going to talk about how they never want to hear the word ECLIPSE ever again!" One more question on my Facebook feed about where to buy eclipse glasses and I'm gonna go the hell off.

    Now that I've actually read the thread, I'd have to agree with Wuzzie that the threads about "Should I become a nurse?" are the most puzzling. Literally no one can answer that but you. I understand wanting feedback from people in the field if you're not really that familiar with it, but at the end of the day, we don't know you, we can't tell you what to do.

    I'm a new grad and it JUST occurred to me that being a nurse entails working weekends and holidays. How can I avoid this - because my family is really important to me (unlike all the rest of the unwashed masses out there in Nursingland).

    "Want to be a CRNA, what is the easiest way to do it, etc..." I'm not an elitist, but I don't want a fast-track CRNA. I'd prefer someone with several years of nursing experience, thanks.

    "What is the fastest NP school?" I don't know, the one that lets you print out your own diplomas? Again, doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

    "I have student loans from my first career, want to be a nurse ASAP, this program costs $80K, should I do it?" NO.

    Ha!!!!! Or entails strict pre-requisites, etc. What is the easiest, fasted and cheapest way to become an RN, NP, CNS or CRNA? Can I do it all online? Will someone out there pay my tuition?

    Have I become somewhat jaded?
