    An experienced nurse doesn't chart enough.
    An experienced nurse will chart the patient is disoriented and restrain them.
    An experienced nurse can't hear any alarms at any distance.
    An experienced nurse doesn't want to know about them unless the patient is symptomatic.
    An experienced nurse avoids the family.
    An experienced nurse will insert a Foley catheter.
    An experienced nurse does.

    these are funny? Kind of concerning if you ask me.

    Some of you guys need to lighten up! Taking this seriously will cause you to stroke out. I thought it was hysterical! I could see myself in both situations (i.e. I can still remember when I was a new grad), and I think it is on target! To quote my hero, Foghorn Leghorn, "it's a joke son, it's a joke"!

    Thought this was great & fits my sense of humor to a T! Put it on my FB to share with my fellow grads who all loved it too. Had one comment though from my husband's cousin who totally missed the boat, stating how she "won't be that kind of graduate nurse" & will "be giving 110% just like the experienced nurse". ?!?!?! She's not even in NS, but just started taking classes for med asst?

    Yes they are funny and you need to relax, this is a joke and is meant to be funny! When you're an experienced nurse, you'll get it.
