My Nursing Career In Six Words

  1. This may have been done before ; AN has been around alot longer than I have been logged into it. I thought it would be interesting to see how succinct we could be. (smilies won't count as words)

    I'll start (and may have to add others later):
    Forty years, one mistake, probationary license

    Soooooo, maybe my example was not so humorous!

    The book this idea came from was titled "Not Exactly What I Had Planned" (6 word memoirs) Here's some examples from me to get you started:

    Six Words About Why I Chose To Be A Nurse: Too Tall To Be A Stewardess
    Six Words About How Nursing Has Changed: Remember "NO PANTSUITS!"?
    I Love Scrubs!
    Six Words I Love To Say To My Patients: "I'm Here ; It's Gonna Be Okay"
    Six Words You'll Never Have To (But Used To Have To) Say: " I'm Gonna Shave Your Scrotum Now"
    Six Words You Wish You Didn't Have To Say To Your Patient: "This 'GoLitely' Will Clear Your Bowels"

    See? C'mon now, make up your own six words!!!!

    Still have to pass the NCLEX....

    Want to get started very soon...

    Terrified I will make a mistake...

    I am tired of nursing school...

    That's it. I can't make up anything funny today. I am too worried about passing my last semester, passing the NCLEX, and getting a job!

    You did just fine!
    They don't have to be funny! No pressure! If you'll look at the thread's start, my first example wasn't funny AT ALL! The original book "Not Exactly What I Had In Mind" has some pretty tragic entries, as a matter of fact. What fascinates me is how much can be conveyed in just six words.
