Racism in nursing

  1. Just kidding!



    I couldn't help it. We haven't had a good beat a dead horse topic around here in awhile... I miss the controversy.

    I haven't annoyed by a dead horse debate in a long time.

    Well, I for one absolutely hate to work with those green nurses our hospital has been recruiting lately. The hospital tells us they are from Canada, but I suspect they are really from Mars. They talk funny, they smell funny, and their antennae just get in the way. Of course administration loves them because they can do twice as much work with the extra set of arms they have.

    Was that RACING in nursing?

    ...Ah, yes, the visuals are coming along...guerney races across the parking lot...office chair races in the halls (extra points if it's on the busiest floor of the medical ctr & you don't cause any new admits via accidents! )

    Ooooh, another thought...breastfeeding....Oh NO!, forget that other dead horse! HA HA HA!

    I am extremely offended by this post. The martian nurses have feelings, you know. This blatant callousness towards the green nurses is just embarrassing. We whine and whine about the nursing shortage, we finally get it solved with intergalactic recruiting, and here we are complaining about their antennae. Have you TRIED to understand their antennae? I think not. I am going to fully support the martian nurses and wear my fake antennae with pride. Shame, SHAME on you!!!! (boo! hiss!)

    I am so ashamed of myself. Vegas, you have shown me the error of my ways. I am going to go out right now and get antennae and a second set of arms. I just hope all of my green co-workers can forgive me for my closed minded behavior.
