    sjukskterska breaks down into "sjuk"=sick "skt"= to care for and the ending "ska" that denotes the feminine so ..... woman that cares for the sick ... sounds like our words have a similar structure

    it is a bit tough on our male nurses if they change it to the masculine sjuksktare it indicates that they work in psych as sktare is a person that works pysch.. they just can't win.. nothing wrong with working pysch but if you work in another ward you don't really want your patients to think you have come from another ward and have other qualifications..

    you can also call yourself Syster Diana.. or whatever your name is but that means sister Diana.. I have actually heard some male nurses call themselves "sister Andrew" or whatever.... wierd .. I don't use the sister denotion either because I feel I have to have a nuns habit to qualify for that :roll

    we stood by our chairs until the teachers told us we could sit, there was perfect quiet in the class and hands were raised to ask a question .. you'd think I was 80 but I am only 34.. I have spent a day with my daughter in school and the discipline was almost the same .... and with a lovely caring feel to it .. :kiss good place to raise kids!

    AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH !!! We did, too !!! Stood by our chairs until we were greeted by the instructor, then curtseyed, then sat down. Stood again as he dismissed class... only difference was that there was no lovely, caring feeling to it... more just plain authoritarianism. But we sure didn't see the problems schools are experiencing today ! I think they've relaxed some from what I hear.. I know the clothes have ! I was sent home for wearing a sweatshirt once ! We didn't have uniforms or anything, but we weren't allowed to be too "casual"....

    we didn't have uniforms either but the dress standard was high .. no bare tummies or too short skirts then ...

    I heard my daughter's teacher tell a kid he was asking for detention and I asked my daughter if it has ever happened.. she looked at me like I was stupid and said yes .. he has had to sit and study while teacher corrected our books ... he hates it but he acts nicer after .... love it ..... I thought detention was a dinosaur :wink2: but it's still alive and kicking in my small town

    hey mother/baby sorry we hijacked the thread!!! :kiss

    This is a really neat thread ~ keep it up !! I have a question for you, nursegreeneyes. I am taking Espanol right now and what is the difference between saying "Amo ser una enfermera" and what you said, "Encanta ser una enfermera." Just curious ~ espanol es muy dificil por me.
