    ...you judge how busy of day you are having by how long it is before you get a chance to go to the bathroom

    ...after growing up with a nurse for a mother you now understand why she was so anal about teaching you the importance of hospital corners on beds

    ...you are able to calmly give iv push compazine as the patient continually throws up while you are doing this

    ...you talk in a language all your own (oops did that before I was a nurse j/k


    ...you understand the importance of good handwashing

    ----if there are at least 2 sets of "borrowed" unmatched scrubs in your closet that say "Property of ____" and that have vital signs and FHT's written all over them in ink.

    -----If your Christmas Lights are put up on the eaves of your house with anesthesia tape--

    ----If your linen closet or bathroom vanity contains at least one full box of rubber gloves---

    --If your extra bedroom is unusable becausde you are keeping all your nursing text books, "just in case"---

    --If you get long-distance calls from your college kid, asking, "Mom, does it look lke its broken?"---

    * you no longer have a gag reflex

    * you know it's a full moon without having to look at the sky

    * your ears perk up when you hear, "attention please" announced at kmart

    * you believe lunch can be absorbed transdermally by applying it to an inconspicous part of one's arm while working

    You might be a Nurse if:

    1) You believe the ultimate complament is "I could hit that vein with a 14 gage, in the dark."

    2) You've ever held hands with your S.O. and had him/her suddenly yell that you were taking their pulse - and you were.
