- Mar 16, '12 by redhead_NURSE98!Quote from Teacher SueHolly crap! LOL she must have seen that episode of Grey's where the woman is going into surgery and her two friends are there, and she is very tearful and hesitant, and George says "If you have something you need to say, just say it. There may not be a chance later." So she starts telling her friends they need to pick different clothes, and one of them has awful breath and needs to see a doctor for it, etc. and ****** her two friends off. Guess that's where she thought you were going with that. Or she found her observations particularly novel and astute and thought it would be impressive for her to show her knowledge of preventative care.I interviewed an RN for a full time position this morning. The interview was going well, and she seemed to be giving me some really good answers. At the end of the interview, I asked if there was anything more she wanted to say. She then proceeded to tell me that I should really pay more attention to my weight, since being overweight puts me at risk for diabetes and cardiac problems, especially at my age. OK, so I am 25 pounds overweight, and around 50, and I know the risks, but do you really tell a potential manager that she is old and fat? Needless to say, I will not be offering her a position.

To help her out, I'd advised her it may help her grab a job if she refrain from doing the untoward behavior.
- Mar 22, '12 by tyrion starkman, i want to say that she was just trying to show off some kind of knowledge/skill that she is aware of nurse/pt teaching. but that is a horrible way to go about it.
in a way, survival of the fittest will keep her out of a job, if she is truly that ignorant. but i cant imagine someone being that ignorant. so i attribute it to nerves. in that case, i feel so, so sorry and embarrassed for her
