    Then there are the "I know I am going to lose my license, I just made a med error." Also, the
    'are LPN/LVNs real nurses?" 'LTC is the place nurses go who aren't smart enough to work anywhere else."

    The only one that annoys me is the "I want to be a nurse but I don't want to work weekends/holidays".
    To be fair, it annoys me in real life too lol. It's really not a big deal to work every third weekend and 3 rotating holidays a year. I have 3 young kids and a husband, if I work a holiday, we celebrate the day before.
    I guess I just don't understand the big deal is. They aren't many fields left that are a standard 8-5, no weekends/holidays left anyway.

    " I would never want you to be MY nurse".
    Someone said that to me once on some internet forum, may have been here

    I said "thats fine, I wouldn't want to be your nurse either"

    I did my first shift in acute care last night for the first time in about a year (of working in LTC).

    It was a bliss only having four patients as opposed to the 34 patients I usually have

    Text speak. RU h8trz rding this?

    Would you chart in text? Then don't expect us to read it here!

    Especially if you are ranting that LPNs aren't real nurses and you are pre-nursing major (I mean what in hades is pre-nursing?)

    "Should I date while I'm in nursing school?" First of all, I don't know you. Don't know don't care. Also, contrary to popular belief, nursing school does not 100% drain you of your life-force. You can study AND live your life...and you can do it all drama-free!

    There's also the imaginary "tough decision".
    "Should I quit my job for a position on a Disney cruise ship that pays triple what I'm making now?" Never mind that they haven't applied and don't have an actual offer.
    "Should I attend school A, B or C?" Never mind that they're not a competitive candidate for any of the three.

    These questions always come with long lists of pros and cons as if there's an actual decision to make.
