Ya know real life is so different than TV...especially in nursing and medicine. Our relationships rarely extend beyond strictly professional boundaries and I feel this is for the BEST. And we do work as COLLEAGUES in the vast majority of cases; that is, the doctors listen to us, respect what we are telling them, and come in when we tell them we need them to. We are their EYES AND EARS IN THE HOSPITAL, YOU BEST BELIEVE THAT!
Further, I cannot think of one doctor I want to see when I am not at work...not ONE--- and I am happily MARRIED. I sure did NOT get into nursing to marry any doctor or even become close friends, an I am even more against it for myself since becoming an RN. Familiar relationships at work often breed contempt between coworkers, so I think it's for the best to stay professional. Welcome to the boards, by the way Lina!
