  1. Describe your 10/10 pain. Piggybacking off of recent pain discussions.
    I don't know. I have a great ability to forget pain shortly after it happens. I got kicked in the knee by a horse. Separated my knee cap. It hurt A LOT, but it was super sharp, super fast, and...

    I graduate in December. I'm sure that would really benefit me but nursing school is expensive and time consuming as is. Sucks the life right outta ya!

  3. Any peri operative nursing book recommendations?
    Thank you for the suggestions! As a student very interested in the OR, would joining the AORN be a good decision? It's a bit expensive, but if it would offer me a leg up and help me better understand...

  7. if you hate nursing, what would you rather do instead?
    Horse trainer. One that actually makes money enough to live comfortably on. This, unfortunately, is nearly impossible. Also, I'm probably not good enough anyway. Still, It's hard for me to be unhappy...

  8. are mandatory scrub color-coding in hospitals the wave of the future?

  9. Why do nurses "eat their young"?
    Thankfully I've yet to run into a nurse that wanted to eat me. I've run into a few during clinicals that didn't want to deal with a student but they were subtle enough that I didn't feel like too...

  12. Anyone doing well?
    I don't think that's what the thread is really about. The "book smarts" tends to be the most difficult aspect of nursing school. I know that there are a few people that chose nursing and find the...

  13. One thing
    I must be lucky. I've enjoyed most of my professors and even the few that I wasn't terribly fond of weren't bad. I like my classmates too. Save for the hefty time commitment, I like just...

  14. "There's nothing worse than a FAT nurse!"
    I wouldn't have a problem with an overweight doctor or nurse telling me to eat better. Or a skinny one. Either way is fine with me. The only thing that gets me is how someone sees the results of...

  15. If Nursing were a Male-Dominated Field
    Oh boy, you've never worked in a male dominated restaurant then. Those boys can be such drama llamas! I can only assume its similar in other fields. Doesn't matter which gender you're talking about,...

    Long sleeves are not an infection control issue in my area. Most nurses wear long sleeves under their scrub tops. If you are treated differently by your employer, you have yourself a nice lawsuit....

    I don't think that I've used anything but APA format in college so far. I was a Microbiology major beforehand and any research papers were in APA format. It's definitely not exclusive to nursing...
