    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
    YES! You also hang on every word said... therapeutic effects...contraindications... side effects ... dangerous adverse reactions, etc...knowing it will give you an advantage when memorizing this drug!

    *you whip out your palm pilot to check to make sure the dosage, route, and side effects of antibiotics they gave your 3 year old is correct and then teach your three year old all about taking his meds.

    *every person in wal mart is symptomatic of something, the woman with the nail clubbing who you start a conversation with just to see if you are correct.

    I was totally distracted by some guy at church last Sunday night because his nails appeared to be clubbed. I kept staring like some stalker trying to catch a better glimpse of his nails to see if I was right.

    OMG!!! this site is way too funny.....

    i am in a LPN program at the local college and when i see an older woman(like me,45..hehe)walking by or standing in a food line i wonder if she is a RN student.....and YES...i do ask cause i want to go on after.....

    just today a woman fell at my sons basketball game.......i did get up to go over but she had her husband and others around her....she appeared not to be hurt and i strained to hear why she fell.......all the while thinking and observing her for signs of low sugar......ended up being a new pair of glasses and she didnt judge the step....

    i am forever assessing people in my head....waking up in the middle of the night to check my notes cause i just couldnt remember something and HAD to know NOW......we only go to clinics on mon and tue and i find myself tues night wishing i had ONE more day of clinic so i could go back and check my PT labs......OMG!!! i could go on and on.....

    just admit it everyone....we EAT,SLEEP,BREATH,and POOP nursing!!!!!!
