At my job, and with most nursing jobs I guess, I sign my name and title A LOT. SO much that I sometimes catch myself almost signing my title in normal every day signatures. Like signing a check, I almost always want to add RN after my signature. I have been able to catch myself because I feel it would be pretty corny to do that.
Why I'm asking this is because I was just reading an obit for a former patient's husband and there was a note of condolence from someone we'll call Susie Baker, RN. She was not this patient's nurse as far as I could tell because in the note she recalled sitting around drinking wine with him and being his friend. I just thought it was strange that in that setting she would use her title. I know if I wrote a letter of condolence in the obituary section of the paper for one of my patients and I did not mention that I was their nurse I would think it a bit tacky to sign my title after my name.
What say you. DO you sign your title after your name in non work situations?
