Sep 15, '01Michelle,
When I saw your avatar, I got a lump in my throat...you are one awesome person! Thank you so much for the support, that is a totally selfless move.
This bb is awesome, I've been addicted from the second I found it. I've even been guilty of some of the bashing, but by watching the tactful way others have handled differences, I've learned too cool my fiestyness and be a bit more thoughtful in my responses. Besides the awesome wealth of nursing info I've gained here, I've regained the "if you can't say something nice...." philosophy. So, I'd like to say thanks for all you people who have set an example for me..even this old dog has been taught a trick or two
You've got to be the sweetest person I've ever met. You always offer words of encouragement and sympathy in the most appropriate times. I hope all goes well for you and your hubby..you and the rest of this wonderful world are in my prayers.
Sep 16, '01Michelle: I want to say, too, how much I was touched by our National Anthem being played at the changing of the guard at the palace. I love this board. It's great seeing nurses from all over our planet who come here to seek advice and support. Peace and Love to everyone, if I haven't said that before.
Sep 22, '01Hi,
I found this board by surfing through different nursingpages.
Since there aren't a lot of them in German, and those who are repeat themselves again and again, this BB is great!
I enjoy the newletter and the discussions here very much!
Sometimes it's hard for me to react immediately, because it takes time to formulate things in English (sorry for all the mistakes by the way!) And sometimes I just can't find the right words and may sound strange to you, soryy about that too.
I've learned a lot, laughed even more and especially the last week cried even more!
Thanks everyone of you, God bless and have a quiet weekend!

As a complete outsider in another country, this message board has given me hope and a heap of good advice. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart, there is nothing like this in the uk and I think that if there were then people would be more understanding and closer.I had a patient die today, 81 years old and had been on our ward for months, he wanted to die and was asking for his mother. I turned him and then went back to him 15 minutes later and he was dead ( he was not for rescusitation, what do you call this??). I am full of guilt, I have been nursing for 12 years and I hate the feeling that someone has died alone.
Hi Michelle: Your patient was a "no code" or a DNR (do not rescuscitate)
To everyone: I agree with you all, this is the best place to vent/start an interesting conversation/share your opinion. Thank you all for being nice to a nursing student!
Sep 22, '01Hey Lois Jean....did you know that my very first instructor in Fundamentals was named Lois Jean? She was also a proctor when I took state boards many, many years later......and now here she (you) are here again. Let's see....10 years older? Hmmmmmmm. I wonder.

But what gets to me the most is when some one of you steps out of the role and says something really SUPPORTIVE of someone else, just because.....No ulterior motive, no aggrandizing of themselves, just PURE SUPPORT!!
Here I am.....probably a good 30+ years older than all of you and yet you make me feel just as welcome as if I were a kid. I hope you feel the same. Keep looking up.
Oct 26, '01Hello,
I would just like to say that this site is one of the best sites that I have been to for nursing students. I ran across this site and now I come here daily to see what is new and to read new posts. I am going to have to cut down on some of the time I visit here everyday but I truly do enjoy it. I am a pre-nursing student and I have recommended this site to all of my friend's. Also this site has been very informative and supportive on the dillema I was facing about whether or not I should go LPN route first or the RN route. I thank God each and everyday for the life's experiences of everyone on this BB. From what state they think is the best, to pay salaries, and to just to reasons why everyone became a nurse no matter what their level of education, and I can truly respect that. Thank You Allnurses.com and May God Bless and Keep Everyone!!!!!!!!
May God Bless Us All And May He Teach Us To Take One Day At A Time, Please Remember The Best Is Yet To Come, This Too Shall Pass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AMEN
Oct 26, '01Nur20... I did not see your website... Could you resend please.... I bet it would be fun reading! TY... B
Oct 26, '01As a recent joiner of this site I too must say that I appreciate all the feedback on questions and the friendship shown to each other. I would like to say thanks for all the good reading.
Oct 27, '01i enjoy this site soooo much. i am on it all the time. i think i'm getting carpal tunnel from it!!( God, i hope not!). debbyed, you call yourself an old dog. i've learned so much from you and P_RN on this BB. i just want all of you more experienced nurses to know that this way less experienced nurse values your opinions, experiences, and comments!!!
Oct 27, '01I, like many others, come to this site almost daily, usually after working 3-11 so its late when I get home. Its my way of unwinding and de-stressing while the puppy races thru the house terrorizing the cats and the old dog (He's been in the pen for 8-10 hours)
I have learned to be a more thoughtful, caring, supportive and hopefully, less negative nurse as a direct result of many of the posts here. I also had a pt die yesterday, unfortunately we did have to run a short code (CPR) till we got the code status clarified, which by the way, I had asked to have the code status clarified the evening before and "her MD had not been in yet".
I always feel like they have gone to a better place, so never feel badly when someone dies
I have learned that others all over the world have the same feelings and thoughts the I do, it validates me somehow. It is good to have some place to come that others understand where you are coming from when you talk about you workday or how it impacts your life in general. It is unfortunate that there are some that "get their knickers in a twist" sometimes, but you can't please all of the people all of the time, so its bound to happen.
All in all, I agree that this is a very supportive site, P-RN and CEN are some of the positive influences found here. Thanks !!
