    when...

    - you forget your own birthday because you have three major tests and a paper in the same week.

    - you only shave your legs on the days that you might have to practice skills on each other (especially TEDS).

    Quote from lindymarie
    You and another student are hiding in a pt. bathroom squeezing urine out of your shoe for an I&O because the urinal was knocked off of the bed rail. The instructor catches you, informs you the results will not be accurate. By the way, she walked out of the room laughing and shaking her head.

    When you zone into a drug commercial while watching television and you wonder what the prescribed dose would be, how you would reconstitute and how many mL you would give. ITS SICK SICK SICK

    You know when you are nursing school when:

    1. you are reading flashcards during traffic

    2. When everyone calls you and ask what you are doing, you say "Studying"

    3. When someone ask you what are you doing this weekend, you say "Studying"

    4. When all your dreams are about exams and quizzes, papers that are due

    5. When your four year-old says "all you do is studying"

    6. When your four year-old says " I am doing my home-work I cannot bathe right now"

    7. When you ask four people for a 4:30 a.m. wake-up call, in case you dont hear your own alarm-dont want to miss clinical

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but I finally have one, no, two.

    When you have more than a 'moderate' amount of alcohol and you find yourself secretly guilty, feeling the need to apologize.... to your liver (as I rub my right gut thinking, "poor little guy").

    When you thing too much about your bowels and their activities, or lack thereof.

    You know you're a student nurse when: while on clinical in a mental health inpatient unit the doctor comes up and asks you if you're a new patient.

    "...you're on AllNurses at 0330 am because you had to get up early to finish those care plans that are due at 0730."

    haha.....you start writing everything in 2400 time. (lol....sorry had too!!)





    .....your significant other tells you he has no idea what you are talking about when you diagnose the random man in the mall, or the woman on the elevator with a barrel chest, unsteady gait, or uneven nasolabial folds, etc.

    ....you spend your Christmas/Summer/Spring break trying to find something to study because you do not know how to function without your nose in a book.
