    ...when you use your spring break, winter break, thanksgiving break, etc. to clean the house you've neglected for the last 4 months.

    ...when none of your friends/family can relate to how you're feeling except your fellow classmates

    ...when you carry your textbooks in one of those crates on wheels and have to buy a new one before next semester because you've worn out the old one

    ...when you and your fellow classmates can talk about BM, urine, vomit, sputum, etc. while eating lunch

    ...when you think you actually have the disease process you're studying

    You know when you are in nursing school when...
    your DRV is maxed out with episodes of "Untold Stories of the ER", "Diagnosis X" and "Medical Incredible" that you are waiting to watch during summer break.
    You know you are in nursing school when...
    You openly criticize episodes of Gray's Anatomy, House, ER, etc and explain in great detail to family members what they did wrong. My poor dad! He's been recording House so he can watch it when I'm not home.

    You know you are in nursing school when:

    You have no social life

    you have anatmical posters all over your walls

    Your out to dinner with a classmate and get dirty looks because you forget that other people do not talk about blood, guts, and BMs while eating

    Your bathroom liturature looks like this:, Nursing 2008, AJN, MCN, Student Nurse, Midwifery Today, Nursing Made Incredibly Easy Journal....and Readers Digest (for company)

    You can watch surgeries on Discovery Health while eating breakfast without batting an eye

    Instead of checking-out hot guys while stating in line at the grochery store you check-out people veins

    You spend spring break working on papers and clinical write-ups

    You got to bed at 10pm and get up at 2am to study for finals

    You know how to spell and pronounce Hydrochlorothiazide and know that its easier just to write HCTZ

    You get excited for the weekend because you can get caught up on reading
