    "Takes one to know one!"

    Did I just revert back to middle school?
    I'm rubber and you're glue, whatever you say Boyce's off me and sticks to you!

    Use 'I' statements...

    "I am feeling threatened whenever you resort to name-calling..."
    "I feel a hostile environment is promoted when you refer to nurses as monkeys..."
    "I feel you are behaving in an uncivil manner when you hurl insults. Please stop."

    "I feel like kicking you in the sack."

    Call HR and follow it up by a written complaint. You want it on file for your protection. Such language is unacceptable under any circumstances. Do not reply to him , do not entertain him, do not add a comment. Just walk away and do the above.
    HR is NEVER a nurse's friend.

    How about "I think you are a sphincter"?

    Quote from OldDude
    I'm not as compassionate or sensitive as the girls; never will be. Nowadays, I'm OK doing the heavy lifting or wrestling a patient because I can and the girls appreciate it and, in so doing, recognize the difference between men and women. I like being a guy in a predominantly girl profession.
    *throws my bra onstage*

    Oops, sorry. Thought this was the "creeper" thread.

    Everyone wins?
    Women as it is don't get paid as much as men, and men rise through the ranks of nursing faster and now they get GRANTS?
    Please.
    Women have taken care of all patients, male and female, for years. Well. If men want to join the ranks, more power to them.
    I thought OP's post was derogatory to both men and women. Men and women both, if they are smart and professional individuals, can be wonderful nurses.
    The last thing men need are grants to one up women in nursing.
    I'm starting to get a bit hot over this, so imma go make my male and female Nurse co-workers some sandwiches now.

    I welcome the addition of more males into the nursing profession if it will benefit the patients, improve working conditions, and lead to increased pay for those of us who have already been nurses for quite some time.

    Generally, the more men that enter a particular occupation, the more money it pays. For this observation alone, I welcome the men who become nurses.

    I learned this week:

    That rashes aren't always what they seem to be. We had a patient with a very allergic appearing rash which turned out to be cutaneous T-cell lymphoma. It looked nothing like the textbook pictures. I'm glad I did a biopsy.

    That even after 2 jobs and almost 7 years as a NP, I am pretty nervous about starting a new job tomorrow. It's in my current specialty, but I'm still anxious.

    That giving my cat subQ fluids is scarier than starting any human IV. I don't like to hurt my kitteh...

    Congrats to all the new graduates!

    Purple-Roses . . . I learned that the young woman taking care of my son while he was hospitalized was not a seasoned nurse yet but a nursing student and she ROCKED. My son was very impressed by his care at this hospital.

    I learned that it is very hard to sit across the room and just "be the mom" and watch someone who looks 16 years old care for your son. I also learned that the stereotype about cocky surgeons held true for the man who did my son's surgery. And I already knew that I can exchange a good bedside manner for superior surgical skills.

    I learned that pathology departments (in some places) are closed on the weekend. That can change the plan for surgery.

    I learned just now from Farawyn's mom about how to read while out in the sun and needing to keep your sunglasses on! Eureka! I've always put my reading glasses OVER my sunglasses, which my kids tease me about. Now I can put my sunglasses OVER my reading glasses!

    I learned that many of the friends I've made here on AN are real, true friends.
