    If you are changing a dressing on a stage 3 decubitis ulcer and think "that is exactly how i like my steaks!"

    You know you are a nursing student when it is the night before the test and you clean your classmates vomit, then go right back to studying and eating your munchies

    You know you're a nurse when you discover that MEN get UTI from not voiding when needed!

    You know you're a nurse when your sisters ALWAYS call to tell you their lab results, BM's, aches pains, and ask you a million questions, and you gently answer all questions!!!

    You're out with boys at a 'Gentlemen Club' and all you can think of, as you see the female dance bump and grind her way across the stage, is "I like to prep that one for surgery!"

    Heck, I'm only a nursing STUDENT and a coworker's boyfriend will take pics and text them to her and say, "show this to brillohead and see what she thinks"!

    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!

    You record the ventilator alarm and set it as your text alert, just to watch your friends that are nurses reactions when not at work.

    Definitely when you have extensive conversations about BMs or other foul things over dinner and you don't even notice you are doing it. Especially if you have other nurses in your family....the non-medical family members are usually horrified.

    When you visit a friend in the hospital and have to resist the urge to empty their catheter.

    When your friend calls you for medical advice and you use terms such as "q" and "PRN" and they tell you to talk English.

    a little while ago, just as i took a sip of my iced tea, my husband read me something that me laugh so hard
    that i coughed, snorted, hacked, and wheezed until i was ok again. then... i blew my nose. again and again.
    many kleenex. when i was finally done, he asked me (so help me) "why did you blow your nose that many
    times?"

    "to get all that mucus up and out."
    "oohh... that word sounds sooo gross!"
    "ok, snot then..."
    he made a face and escaped to the kitchen.
