Hey all, I'm taking the Nclex tomorrow, and studying/reviewing last minute things. I jumped on allnurses for a bit of a break. So here's my question.. What is the theme song to your nursing career?... Read More


  1. 2
    For those in Psych "Unwell" by Matchbox Twenty.
  2. 1
    Quote from CodeteamB
    1- Wise Up- Aimee Mann
    For the acute on chronic pancreatitis in bed 6:"it's not going to stop 'til you wise up"

    2- Rehab - Amy Winehouse
    For many, many patients: "and I say 'no, no, no'"

    3- I Fought the Law - The Clash
    For the police-dog bite in Fasttrack and the man with taser electrodes in his face (ouch): "And the Law won"

    4- You Can't Always Get What You Want - The Rolling Stones
    For the seeker being escorted off property

    5- As Is - Ani Difranco
    For my new co-worker who is still killing herself trying to be nice:"so give up and admit you're an a------, you would be in some good company"

    6-Suspicious Minds - Elvis
    For the paranoid BPD in the psych cell and his co-dependent girlfriend

    7- I Hate Everyone - Get Set Go
    For me after that shift :"I hate most everybody, but most of all I hate you"

    8- Breakable - Ingrid Michaelson
    This is my real theme song, as it reminds me of the reasons that I wake up and do it everyday, and why at the end of the day I love my job:

    "And we are so fragile,
    And our cracking bones make noise,
    And we are just breakable, breakable,
    Breakable girls and boys"
    I love your list and actually have a playlist on my iPod named "Going to Work" that has several of the songs you mentioned. I would add the following:

    The Freaks Come Out At Night by Whodini
    "And nine times out of ten they drive you nuts"

    Insane in the Membrane by Cypress Hill
    "Who you tryin' to get crazy with ese?
    Don't you know I'm loco?"

    Head Like a Hole by Nine Inch Nails
    "I'd rather die than give you control"

    Lunatic Fringe by Red Rider
    "'Cause you got to blame someone for your own confusion"

    Another Brick in the Wall by Pink Floyd
    "We don't need no education
    We dont need no thought control"

    That's all I got for now...but I'm sure more will come to mind on my way to work tonight...LOL

    "I hear the secrets that you keep when you're talking in your sleep"

    The EP to my nursing career so far consists of:

    Welcome to my nightmare -Alice cooper
    Over my head-the fray
    Basket case- green day
    Ireland's call-Celtic thunder
    Walking on sunshine-don't remember who wrote it.

    Abbreviated list. Changes every so often. Some were mentioned.

    On my way to work:

    "Beast Mode" - B.O.B - Song just gets you amped especially the for first 5 hours where I barely got time to think. Love the quote "I am as loyal as loyalty is when it's gave, dedicated, determined, dependable, yes I committed myself to this game"

    "Can't Trust 'Em" - Dizzy Wright - Same as above, just gets me ready to go.

    "Hustle Hard" - Ace Hood

    "Goodbye" - Slaughterhouse, pretty sad song, but deals with the one of the tougher aspects of our job at times - helping families say goodbye.

    After Work:

    "Fight for Your Right" - Beastie Boys, especially when I'm getting a few days off lol

    Sorry, but I am a HUGE hip-hop head so that's where my favorites come from. And no I don't consider most of the garbage you hear on the radio hip-hop, but that's for another time lol

    Recently, Pink Floyd's "Learning to Fly."

    The occasion is learning to fly,
    Condition grounded, but determined to try.
    Can't keep my mind from the circling sky,
    Tied up and twisted, juts an earthbound misfit, I.
    One of my favorite songs!!! Wanted to get a quote tattoo with the lyrics
  10. 1
    On the way to work: Light it Up-Fall Out Boy(gets me pumped up) ac/dc-Thunderstruck (same reason)
    On way home: Move B%$@#-Ludicris so I can get home
