    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 ?????

    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.)

    I really, really, really want to be a nurse. But I am so shy I can't bear the thought of having a job where I might have to actually talk to someone. What nursing specialty would be best for me?

    If you got fired because the other nurses were jealous of how much younger and prettier/more handsome/smarter you are then them, you should definitely put it on your resume anyway because it wasn't YOUR fault - they were out to get you!!

    Quote from JDougRN
    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!)

    OK, I will say it - you all are SO MEAN. I have snorted Diet Dr. Pepper out of my nose at least 3 times while reading this thread. Doesn't anyone care how painful that is?? What if I had drowned?? Anyone think of that? NO - selfish mean people.
