A Doctor's Wish

  1. A pediatrician, a cardiologist, and a neurosurgeon were walking on the beach. The pediatrician stubbed his toe on an object, picked it up and discovered it was a lamp. The pediatrician rubbed the lamp with his sleeve to clean it and a genie appeared. "To show my gratitude for being released from the lamp, I will grant you three wishes" said the genie.
    The pediatrician who found the lamp said "I want to be 25% smarter so I can be the greatest pediatrician in the world!" Poof! He was 25% smarter and became the greatest pediatrician in the world. The cardiologist said with distain, "He always did think small, I want to be 50% smarter and become the greatest caridiologist in the world." Poof! He was 50% smarter and became the greatest cariologist in the world. The neurosurgeon said with disgust, "Niether one of them ever had any ambition. I, however, will rise to the top! I want to be 100% smarter than I am now and become the greatest neurosurgeon in the world!"
    The genie said "I will grant your wish, but I must warn you that I cannot reverse any changes that your wish may bring upon you." The neurosurgeon said, "I don't care what changes occur. I want to be 100% smarter!" "OK" said the genie, "Your wish is my command!" Poof! "You're a nurse!"

    One of the OB docs on our unit actually admitted that nurses have to be smarter than doctors. His reasoning: doctors are task oriented, while nurses need to know it all! Smart doc, eh?

    The one about Nunns only serving one God....

    On Nurses day, our Nurses all wear a button on their scrubs with this on it.

    I think its their gift for the day. They consider it a shift long therapy session.
