- Jun 17, '12 by jennyrn2012Quote from nrw350My stethoscope is on my rear view mirror I also always study people's hands/arms.... without them noticing...I think.Here are some of the (humorous) ways to tell if someone is a nurse:
They store their stethoscope over the rear-view mirror in their car
They have medical supplies in their homes/car that can normally be gotten only thru hospital
They wear scrubs to bed and around the house as though it was formal wear.
They look at you intensely (esp at the arms) for veins.
I hope you all find these humorous. Please feel free to add to this list as you all see fit. Should turn out to be a good laugh I would think.

On the topic of things that are hilarious at work but non-medical people probably wouldn't even get or find funny...
They gave us a former office that is inside our nursing station as a place to store drinks and belongings out of patient view. One of my fellow labor and delivery nurses came up with the name "The Internal os" and it stuck. lol

- Jun 18, '12 by InoriWhen you can make an accurate nursing diagnosis when still half asleep. Its as if my brain splits into 1/2 the part that holds all my nursing knowledge kicks in and does a quick assessment of ABCD and gives proper advice while the other part of the brain is still waking up. This is new grad marveling at the results of my nursing education
