    Yes, i am lurker not a poster but i wil contribute more. One thing i have always wanted was to publish/promote the stories of the 'wiser' nursing generation before me ( i am 30). What do you think?

    I think it's a great idea, yanmah. I work in aged care and often hear some wonderful, weird and heartbreaking stories from former nurses.

    Hi Grace!! I am working with a couple of New Mexicans at the moment (and one Californian - the American invasion has begun) They can't get over some of our expressions like "Ta" for thank-you and "Boxing Day". Though with that lot I am not too sure who is pulling whose leg:chuckle

    Thanks for the laugh, you caught another Yank sneaking around! The bet here is now that the Obama has been elected President in the States, you'll be seeing more than a few more Americans with nursing licenses at your door. Thought of it myself, frankly... Oooppps, guess I shouldn't be getting political on this board.

    Don't worry about your sayings and lingo being incomprehensible to American ears, I imagine lots of ours do the same to folks who come here, though Hollywood "exports" our slang pretty well, or at least the California version of it.
