    this is an excellent question.....i have given up on this tho. Once i know the truth i am good. Some people can be hard-headed when they are ready so i dont bother with them anymore...not intended to sound ignorant btw

    I work in a level III NICU. We had a baby who was admitted directly into our Intermediate Care Unit. The newborn's mother asked the RN caring for her infant how much money we make. My coworker gave her a general number to which the mother replied,"You make that much just rocking babies?!" WHAT!!!! My coworker promptly disabused her of that misconception. I love getting out my blank transport forms and going over them with those who made the mistake of implying that I "rock babies". I also have a hard time getting my mother to understand that nurse's specialize. I don't take care of anyone greater than 12lbs, so I have no idea what you should do about your adult problem other than call the doctor!!
    Perception Perception....tsk tsk tsk smh

    What is the most annoying stereotype that you have directly come across. We all know the naughty nurse one. I'm talking more along the lines of, what have you personally had to deal with?

    Mine: Well, if you were smarter wouldn't you have become a doctor?

    Well, I didn't become a doctor because I understand that they have to devote more time
    and effort into a job than I would like to. To me, a job is a job. Life is what happens when
    you're NOT at work. I don't want my whole life to revolve around work. I would like to take
    vacations and not be on call, have kids and actually RAISE them. THAT, you idiot, is why
    I did not decide to become a doctor. ARGH!
    you tell them girl...besides your reason is your own...at the end of the day you CHOSE to be a nurse and thats it, it matters not what others think. Besides, you can remind them that its that same "not smart" nurse is who is going to be caring for them.

    Some people just dont think sometimes....what does being a doctor have to do with being smart...sighhhhhh so then what about scientists and engineers...smh

    We sign in hourly for lectures. No kidding. A sign-in sheet is literally passed around the room every hour.

    Clinicals, so far, we sign in just at the beginning because it's a much smaller and controlled group and corralled in a smaller room. The door hinges squeak and there is only one way in and out, too. >;-D

    Apparently the school has had a problem with people who sign in at lecture, then skip out at a break. Plus they have a lot of nontraditional students who are receiving some sort of government tuition aid, and apparently there is a vast amount of reporting that the school has to do to the government, above and beyond documenting that the student has enough seat time in lecture to be NCLEX-eligible. Those seats they have for lecture are not real comfortable, so I can see why people really want to get out of them and go someplace else, lol. (The Devil made me say that.)
    omg that is really horrible...i would hate that..lol

    We didn't have to sign out though, that is kinda weird lol
    i think so too...we just have to sign to show that we were present but thats it...its a requirement of the government.
