    I think it is funny. Just remember that once that graduate nurse steps into the real world and out of those books (which is usually the first day on the job) they will be "experienced" and think this is funny!!!!

    Well I don't know if it was meant to be funny but it was to me.

    I think it was meant as a joke. I'm only a nursing student and I found some of it funny. Not all of it, but some of it was funny, especially the "A Graduate Nurse will not find this funny, An experienced nurse will." My aunt is an OR nurse and she found some of these funny.

    Funny and somewhat true when the thrill and newness of nursing is gone

    Nooooo, Z! VERY funny all the way! :kiss

    Someday the newbies will be laughing too. I remember being a newbie. I even charted properly. (NOT that the patient is sleeping, but that his eyes are closed and he is making a snoring type sound...LOL!!!!!!!!)

    You can't help but to come a looooong way from when you were a newbie grad.

    A friend of mine is in her 40's and she just graduated from nursing school a few months ago. I laughed and laughed when she emailed me to tell me about those old timers... they weren't charting properly. They diagnosed someone as sleeping, or some other such nonsense. She wanted to know if that hospital was just lax or what the deal was.

    She's been in rehab for a few months now and amazingly, a few months is all it took. She charts just like the old timers now. :chuckle

    I think that was great, I actually saw myself in some of those lines (been a nurse for 18 years) and any other experienced nurse who says that dont see themselves in some of those lines is fooling themselves. Youve got to learn to laugh at yourself and your profession once in a while, keep humor in the back of your mind at all times or youll go crazy!!!!
