    That's ridiculous. Why would you have to tell anyone you take any medication, unless it's one that shows up on a drug screen? It's no one's business what medication I take, least of all my school or the board.

    I am childless by choice also. However, I've had a few surgeries that have made me unable to have children even if I wanted them. When patients ask me if I have children or when I'm going to, and I think they are being nosy or rude, I just say bluntly, "I can't have children." Every now and then someone will then say something about adoption, but mostly it makes people feel so bad for being insensitive that it stops the conversation right there. It is none of their business so I have no problem making them feel guilty.

    Maybe I am a bad person...

    Just because this issue isn't unique to nursing, does that mean there isn't a problem? Other people do it too. So what? It's still an issue.

    What right do you have to tell HER not to share with people? If the OP wants to share, bur then the recipient doesn't want what is being shared, then the receiver can discard the gift. You share your gifts of nursing and the healing arts with others, don't you? If she is prompted to share this GOOD news, then don't discourage her, Let her share. When Jehovah Witnesses come to my door, I know that they sincerely want to share their views with me.. and therefore, I am hospitable to them as a fellow human being. It is very sad that some of the most intolerant people are those who can't stand it when someone mentions Christ.
    When you "share," you put people on the spot and it makes them uncomfortable. When you hand them a gift--and they don't even know you--that is awkward and uncomfortable. I for one resent people who put me on the spot. I have had several patients ask me straight out if I know Jesus. In my area, the majority of people ascribe to Christianity, so it's not unusual, but that doesn't make "sharing" acceptable behavior. I do believe in God but even so I find this very off putting. What I believe is none of your business. And I don't want to buy your Avon either.

    I am officially closing this discussion and I no longer want to be a nurse, thanks for the input guys.
    If you are so sensitive to be offended by this relatively gentle, straightforward info, you'll never make it as a nurse. Sorry to say. You asked for information, you got it. I'm not sure why you're so upset.
