    Well I have worked as a PCA for many many years (and I'm graduating nursing school soon) and around 70% of the nurses I work with help with baths and it makes everyone's lives a lot easier. You must not work in a place that values teamwork

    A Graduate Nurse _______________________________.

    GOSH, where is the sense of humor, people??????? Love when people get all defensive on a Jokes thread, lmao! That in itself is humor

    I'll bite:

    A Graduate Nurse neatly presses their scrubs every morning.
    An experienced nurse eyeballs their scrubs for wrinkles every morning.

    (yes, corny ... but could not think of anything else right now )

    A Graduate Nurse wants everyone to know he/she's a nurse.
    An Experienced Nurse doesn't want ANYONE to know he/she's a nurse.


    A Graduate Nurse thinks people respect nurses.
    An Experienced Nurse knows people blame all their problems on the nurse.
