    Always nice to know where the wind of nursing blowing from one minute to the next..... Some of this is revealing, thinking that nurses believe they are too dumb to be a nurse, and being a repeat NCLEX taker, somehow prevents you from being a nurse, well folks, you can keep taking that test until you passed, and you will be the best test taker by the end. The best nurse comes only with experience.

    I had a patient in triage the other day who said he had always wanted to be an RN. He said "I'm not particularly smart but I have read a lot of Stephen King novels and am good with my hands". I did not really want to know where he was headed with that comment! So maybe nursing and serial killers have a lot in common ?????

    I'm still going with my theory of nursing today mirroring the Roman Empire.

    Good times.

    Oh me next!!!!
    OK- Here it goes. I got a DWI, can I still be a nurse even though I've failed the NCLEX 5 times, probably due to that weed I smoked before I sat down and tried to decide if I want to be a CNA, LPN, or RN, or just go for my CRNA or MD.So anyway, does anybody know how long weed shows up in a "**** test" (Damn, that one makes me cringe...) But I don't think it was my fault, because my teacher was mean, and my preceptor was old and didn't help me, cause she was too busy figuring out how to "eat the young."Then I got fired after working only 2 weeks, do I have to put it on my resume? Oh yea, and should I get the mandatory flu vaccine that my employer is demanding? (That last one was a cheap shot...but I just HAD to do it!)

    This is just a shot in the dark, but was he in there for some kind of self inflicted wound?

    People! I thought nurses were supposed to be CARING!!! I can't believe you don't have more compassion for stupid people that drink and drive!!!! Nurses aren't supposed to be so judgmental!!! How dare you!! I would hate for any of you to take care of me! No wonder people say that nurses eat their young!!
    Drunk drivers and stupid people, please know that at least someone here believes in you!!!!!! (5x NCLEX takers, y'all have plenty of people in that other thread that believe in you.)
