It seems I have made an error. I thought she wrote 23 years old in this thread and not in experience.

Her math adds up, my comprehension for reading not so much today.

My apologies.

Thanks for the heads up.

Ski nurse? I'm intrigued. Here in the US, most ski patrollers function at the BLS level, some as paramedics & there are docs on the hill at some resorts. But a nurse? Cool. What's your scope in that role?

Anytime you walk into a room full of strangers it is wise to keep your mouth shut and ears open until you get the lay of the land.

In a word, lurk.

If that is a new word, it means to hang out, read some threads, learn the language, get a sense of what is offensive, hot buttons, respectful disagreement etc., before starting topics of a questionable nature.

It's not worth it. I think I have some really interesting stories to share, but it's simply not worth it. I don't have a thick enough skin for this, although I now I have had such a response, I would like to continue. But at the end of the day, I might just keep my adventures to myself.

And that's perfectly alright.

I don't believe your stories, but that's neither here nor there.

It's somewhere. Sex, lies, kinks and drugs.:rolleyes:

Welcome to allnurses, love. You'll get the hang of this! Message board etiquette was new to all of us at one time or another. And some of us acclimate to it more quickly than others. You do you. Get to know the lay of the land. This is a great place. The school nurses forum might be a great place for you, if you want to dig in on some reading.

I should say - if you do find a topic in a forum like school nurses interesting and it's more than a couple of months old, if you respond on it, be sure to state clearly that you know it's an old topic before saying anything else. Also try not to bump old topics too often. It makes the natives restless.

I think some of what's happening here is based on cultural differences which can lead to big misunderstandings. I have read through your posts and find them entertaining when I can make sense of what you are saying. If you live in France where things are much more free in the morality department your going to have a different viewpoint than someone like me who was raised in a religiously oppressed family in the good old USA which like it or not was founded on Christian principals - our fearless leaders were Puritan's who burned epileptics at the stake for the crime of witchcraft. For me the idea of underage girls and boys going off on an un-chaparoned trip is insane, but I have sent my son away to camp and some co-ed activities with proper adult supervision.

PS that some religious fanatics in the US got it all wrong and use Christianity as a shield to behave in very unchristian ways is the subject for another post.

As a nurse you should be basing your practice on good evidence based care. While you may not agree with how folks raise their children you can't inject your own morality on someone else especially a patient or someone elses child. You can advise and instruct without making moral judgements.

There are some things you say in your posts which would be clear boundary violations here in the US - starting a sex topic by asking if any of the boys watched porn would be wildly inappropriate, but again that may be a cultural thing or a man thing (no offense intended) my own husband has questioned the few co-ed trips our son has been on from the viewpoint of knowing what 13 Y/O boys think about - which I have no clue.

Don't try to be a parent to these kids be a professional nurse and throw the parenting back to the parents via the principal or headmaster or whatever it's called where you are.

Right?! Love the "pardon me, I didn't know how this works" line. You found the site, created an account, read the TOS (hello noobs who INSIST on using text speak), and jumped right it with inflammatory posts. Nice try though!!

Glad someone else said this. I also don't believe the current "babe in the internet woods" thread. Lets see what's next.

I know this will sound incredible, but this really happened to me....[

Think camp nurse (as in USA summer camp) but on a mountain in Europe. Any serious injuries on mountain I just radioed SOS. Loved it so much, that went and sat my NZSIA (like PSIA) and became a fullly-fledged ski instructor. Did a season in Park City, Utah, and finished that same winter in Heavenly, Lake Tahoe.

Experienced 'Sundance' managed to get an invite to a 'after-party' which was a bizarre experience, but I won't share any of what I saw at that party, because you won't believe me.

Got to ski with Liz Hurley (the British actress from Austin Powers) although i can't say I really 'skied' with her, as I was in uniform, and saw her skiing terribly in front of me, and felt I should offer her advice. But, thinking that would be a very 'cheesy' star struck sort of thing to do (and I don't do celebrityitis) I skied up to her, and with thoughts of Austin Powers in my head said....

Exactly.

I think I didn't start posting until

I got the lay of the land, and posted questions, the moved on to responses; after my hiatuses, I still lurked a bit before posting-it was a bit rocky at first, but then I honed it, and am understood-MOST of the time. :D

Oh man . . . . . that's not fair. Leaving me dangling like this. ;)

I just have to add that a good friend took her family to Disneyland this last week and wrote on her FB page that Justin Bieber was on the Small World ride in the boat in front of the one she was in. She took some photos and yes, it was him.

I typed "Someone push him overboard" . . . . . joking of course. :woot:
