The Wisest Thing I've Ever Heard on Allnurses ...Register Today!
- by Liddle Noodnik Aug 18, '12We have all heard some wise advice on Allnurses, or the perfect quote, or just "the sentence that sums it all up" for you.
I think my favorite is this:
"You shouldn't have to learn your (nursing) job from youtube."
This statement was in response to a new grad who'd lost her first job, and was now trying to polish her skills - partly through youtube videos. This response just cracked me up!
How about you? What's the wisest thing YOU'VE ever heard on Allnurses?

- Aug 18, '12 by aachavezI use youtube, my instructors recommend it as well, just as a helpful aid. Also there's some very interesting stuff on medical procedures and surgeries that are just interesting to watch. Cant say that anything stands out as the best advice I've gotten, most times I ask a question it doesnt get answered, or only gets snarky replies.

You can't fix stupid? Wow.
I am not stupid.
If you are going to take the energy to make a post like this at least get the facts straight. I may
not have the experience as a brand new nurse like seasoned nurses do, but I hope I always have the
compassion to be supportive.
You were once a brand new nurse too.
And so what if I do end up watching youtube videos? At least I have the courage to dust myself off and try
again after getting punched in the stomach. At least I am not afraid of asking for help when I need it - even
at my lowest point. I don't ever want to be the type of person that has to lift myself up by pushing someone
else down even lower.
