    Sounds like you are intereacting with this person on two different levels.

    Just because she has bent your ear with personal details does not make for true friendship unless you are socializing together after work hours.
    Let her vent if you desire but just remember you may still have to work with her in a prefessional relationship after the "friendship" is over.

    VERY hard to keep your boundaries here. Many nurses have been burned when they try do be both.

    Best advice. Do Nothing unless directly asked to comment.
    Might be wiser to cool relationship totally.
