    This seems incredibly silly to me, and I imagine the teachers feel reservations as well. Honestly WHY would they want to stop what they're doing, do wound care or whatever they think they need to do, and then have to get the classroom settled down again? Not only that, but they're licensed to teach, not assess for medical needs. What happens when a kid faints, wakes up after ammonia, then turns out to have some severe issue get ignored? NO WAY!

    ..a moderator on a forum of this evident quality..
    ..wouldn't stoop to such a blatantly authoritarian abuse of due process..

    Well, unless she was 'Nurse Ratched' herself, of course.. L.o.l..
    Sometimes, the best response to an issue really is to lighten up. Some people need to be reminded of that.

    Lighten up, Frances.

    Keep an eye out for this week's thread, which will be guest OPed by Purp!

    I had such high hopes to do it yesterday and realized not one single thing was nursing related. I actually was happy for that, for my own sake because I need my brain decompressed, but I realized it meant I needed to get someone else to do it. Thank you very much for stepping up at the last minute, Purp!

    I love a laugh.. & I was not trying to be "heavy",(I aint no Led Zeppelin l.o.l.)..
    ( indeed though, some things are "difficult to convey" - it appears).

    Anyhow.. so maybe you could - as mod', ask for clarification of what the..
    .. original "common & boring" comment was intended to convey..

    ..rather than assuming such an 'over-reaction' - from me, ( & I did.. ask..).

    Instead of a (seemingly heavy-handed - oops, there's irony),
    .."lighten-up" mod' intervention?

    Cheers..
    The original common and boring comment was meant to convey that nurses who are male are everywhere. They aren't rare and unusual.

    AN is an internet forum, which draws out the worst in anonymous behavior; it is a large bridge and houses many trolls. For all its flaws, it is still a pretty neat place to explore. I came back because I've been so discouraged about nursing, but I'm finding new energy reading from the compassionate, supportive experienced nurses and the whip-smart shiny new nurses (to be). It's good to be here.

    Heck yeah.
    Clue used to refer to a ball of yarn, as clew. Theseus followed a trail of yarn to make his way out of the labyrinth of Crete... see how that works?
    Naughty used to mean poor - as in having naught. The Calvinistic belief that poor people are immoral led to it's current meaning.
    Text used to refer to the written word, now it also refers to the act of sending written words.
    Tool used to be a noun for an implement used to do work, now it also means a person being taken advantage of and not too bright.

    Language changes, and that's awesome.
    See this movie.

    My gay friends will be so glad to know they've been identifying wrong all these years.
    I hate the word straight. Sticks are straight. I always be sure to introduce myself by saying, "hello, my name is ixchel, and my marriage is heterosexual."
