    I'm a student.. But my 4 year old said to me last night, "mommy, I need a band-aide or my boo boo will get BACTERIA in it!!" (in a frantic voice) lol.

    He'll probably be like the one posters 4 year old who went to school talking about nursing stuff. He is already way into learning anything that mommy is. And he loves the bones! I've been trying to talk my husband into letting me buy a skeletal man! Yeah, he won't give in. Way too creeped out about it. Hahaha.

    Good one... just wait after you earn a couple of years under your belt, everyone will be asking you questions on your days off, as a matter of fact I had several family and friends of mine that do the same, they call me or send me a pic, to get my opinion, however, mind you they are in Europe!
    LOL! I just got accepted into nursing school.. Yet my aunt tells me, "you need to tell your grandpa how he can make his blood pressure go up, it's really low!" ummm... ? I don't know anything about that. I asked, "how am I suppose to know that? How about you guys call his doctor!" crazy.. And ridiculous.

    (Nursing student, not a nurse yet, but...)

    When a friend collapses at his son's baseball game with CPR all the way to the emergency room, and you spend 36 straight hours in the ICU playing Medical Translator and Newsletter Email Person for the terrified wife and parents and that's where you WANT to be, because if you were home (an hour away) you'd be going crazy not knowing what was going on.

    Everyone said I went right into Nurse Mode as soon as I arrived... guess I picked the right major in school!
