    As a newer nurse, having found this site while researching programs and utilizing it throughout school and afterwards, my submission would be "If we could do it, so can YOU!". It was helpful for me. It was like look around, these people are no smarter, more committed than you are. It definitely helped he press on. So, thanks everyone! :-)
    That is awesome! and it is true ... I always saw nursing as a recipe, to which you added your own spices There are the basics and fundamentals you need to learn and then you add your personality and whatever else you bring to the table

    I had just miscarried and started a thread about going back to work after the fact. One very wise poster who had been there herself told me: When people say the wrong thing to you (and they will), keep in mind it is because they desperately wanted to say the right thing.

    That little tidbit right there kept me from slapping many a face in the days after losing a baby. So brownbook, wherever you are, thank you.

    "Some days, the brief lands poop side down."
    As a new grad in the ER, this quote (or something similar) popped out at me and reminded me that it's normal to feel disorganized and behind, and sometimes it's beyond your control.

    On a thread where people were discussing commutes vs pay rate and other things, someone said something to the effect of:

    "Nursing just sucks a lot of times and no matter how much you job hop, you will never find that unit/position where its all perfume and roses. When considering what job to take, consider things like commute, schedule and other things that wont change. Those will be the things that keep you there."

    I like this one:

    "Don't believe everything you think."

    at first I thought it was referring to spiritually. But it could apply to those of us with psychological difficulties too. I know I can't always believe what is in my head. Not talking delusion but just the attitudes I have when I'm anxious, or depressed.
