    Some days it makes me chuckle.
    Some days it makes me disgusted.
    Some days I think I just need to step away from allnurses.

    The number 3 post is actually doubting the abilities of those who have to take the NCLEX 5 times, but I agree, in order to be a profession, we need professionalism.

    The same questions that have probably been asked over and over since the dawn of DWI's, NCLEX and stupidity....the only difference is that 20-30 years ago you didn't have the internet to display such questions for the whole world to see.

    So...yeah....

    I think the "I flunked NCLEX 5times" may just be the next marathon thread. Bet that comes back to the surface for years.

    I'm a "pre nursing student". What the heck?

    "My dream is work with children". For crying out loud.

    "Should I be an LPN, RN, MSN, NP, or go to medical school?" I don't care.

    "Do I have to see pee, poop, vomit, blood, and deal with sick people to be a nurse?" Uh, yeah.

    "I took a friends valium and my drug test came up positive. Can you help me?" Is there a shorter answer than NO?

    1. Do you deserve to be a nurse?
    2. Are you truly stupid? Then, no.
    3. Start over, please. Because you need more education.

    And I have a very low tolerance for whining. No matter who you are.

    A little filler - -1. how many times were you possibly DUI before you got caught?
    2. big difference in an occassional goof-up or constantly being unawares
    3. you are scaring me. Just what is the problem??


    Sorry, just my take on these issues......

    Can I get out of doing "labor and delivery", and oh, um, "old people" in clinicals and still graduate nursing school?

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

    Good times.
