    What do you do after a rough shift? Have fun with the girls? Eat chocolate? Or, do you just go straight to bed?

    The wonderful thing about nursing is that it is open to everyone of all ages. Please give a cheer to all the people who believe that age is not a factor in learning. And, to all the people who strive for knowledge regardless of age. How old were you when you started nursing school?

    We've all seen this type of patient. They start out in the ER insisting that they be seen first because no one else could be in as much need of medical attention as them. This behavior carries over to the floor once they've been admitted. They want it, and they want it NOW. What are some experiences you've had with such privileged characters?

    We've all seen them......the people who think they should always come first, no matter what the circumstances. In the healthcare environment, we cannot always address the needs of patients in the order of occurrence. Contrary to popular belief, the squeaky wheel cannot always get fixed first. Tell us some of your stories about patients and their sense of entitlement.

    Four expectant fathers were in Minneapolis hospital waiting room, while
    their wives were in labor.

    The nurse arrived and announced to the first man, "Congratulations sir,
    You're the father of twins."

    "What a coincidence" the man said with some obvious pride.
    "I work for the Minnesota Twins baseball team."

    The nurse returned in a little while and turned to the second man, "You
    sir, are the father of triplets."

    "Wow, That's really an incredible coincidence " he answered. "I work for
    the 3M Corporation." My buddies at work will never let me live this one
    down.

    An hour later, while the other two men were passing cigars around, the
    nurse came back, this time she turn to the 3rd man -
    who had been quiet in the corner. She announced that his wife
    had just given birth to quadruplets.

    Stunned, he barely could reply. "Don't tell me! Another coincidence?"
    asked the nurse. After finally regaining his composure,
    he said "I don't believe it, I work for the Four Seasons Hotel."

    After hearing this, everybody's attention turned to the 4th guy, who had
    just fainted, flat out on the floor. The nurse rushed to his side and
    after some time, he slowly gained back his consciousness.
    When he was finally able to speak, you could hear him
    whispering repeatedly the same phrase over and over again.

    "I should have never taken that job at 7-Eleven...
    "I should have never taken that job at 7-Eleven...
    "I should have never taken that job at 7-Eleven..."

    12-hour shifts have been gaining in popularity among nurses and hospitals ... Do you think this is a good idea? Do you find it more dangerous to work a 12-hour shift vs a 10-hour shift? Would you prefer sticking to the standard 8-hour shifts?

    The word NO in this instance, needs to be in caps. Overtime, working extra shifts are a reality. Deciding to work extra though is or should be your choice. allnurses hears frequently about nurses being "mandated," "forced" or made to feel guilty if they turn down an extra shift. When you don't want to work that extra shift, what do you say? Do you make up an excuse or do you just say NO!?

    Sometimes it is hard to work during the week and on weekends and have any kind of social life when you are a Nurse. After a long day/night at work all you can think about is going home and vegging out in your fav chair. Who has time or energy for parties, a drink with friends at the local bar, or an extravagant date, movie, or dancing? How do you plan ahead and make the time to socialize?

    allnurses.com is my full-time job and business, it has been for over the past 15 years. I also stay up to date with nursing changes and maintain my RN license. This has been mentioned several times publicly online and in interviews, never been a transparency issue as far as I know But I'm happy to re-clarify.

    I enjoyed nursing immensely, but there are only so many hours in a day, growing and developing allnurses.com became my passion and has proven to be a great resource for thousands of nurses and nurses to be. I don't regret my decision one bit to work at allnurses.com full time. As others mentioned, there are many facets to practice nursing, I chose to use my nursing knowledge and experience along with my technical skills and my entrepreneurial drive to provide a platform that increases the communication and networking of nursing professionals worldwide.

    Thanks to everyone for all the testimonials and feedback we get frequently are awe inspiring, and it does give us motivation to continue to improve AN!
