I actually scanned that one ... the original I have is 8.5 x 11 and it fits perfectly in a plastic document holder I bought @ Walmart with magnets on the back, so it hangs right on my fridge. I got it at the UCF nursing school in Orlando when I went to visit them about their program (which I have since decided was not for me). If I am in the area again prob in 2 weeks, I will drop by and see if they have any more. Here's a bigger version attached.

It's interesting y'all speak of media portrayal of nurses. I was in my senior year and the student body was trying to raise money so that we could print/make our own sweatshirts and t-shirts with our school logo.

KWIM? Class pride and school pride and all that.

So, the student body was asked to come up with themes - the winning theme would be sent to the printers and they'd put it on the clothes.

Anyway, here's one suggestion that was sent in:

The idea caused a massive furore - with many students (and some faculty) - both male and female - chiming in that they found the "suggestive ideas" highly inappropriate. Some students were deeply offended by the suggestion - while others were of the opinion that the clothes were optional and there was no compulsion on anyone to buy them. Besides, some students thought it was funny and saw nothing wrong in "laughing at ourselves".

Ultimately, the student body organisation dropped the idea to sell the shirts.

well; I would have bought that T-shirt!! I think sometimes we need to learn to laugh at ourselves.. we can be very serious.... but then I am a fencer and have a t-shirt which says 'it takes more than 56 inches to impress me' with a picture of a fencer under the writing. its a fencing joke... an epee is 56 inches long. guess it offends some people but fencers love it!! (and i bought it in the states on my last visit)

LMAO! I wrote this back in May 2009 and could not help to notice it now. This is the same school that just last Friday accepted me into their ABSN for this summer. :eek: ... At the time, I believe I was sore because an advisor there told me I had a slim chance of getting in based on the GPA of my 1st bachelor's. I had not even taken my prereqs yet! This is why I said I had decided that way. Well, times change and I sure disproved her! :D

Men are taking over nursing:) Things will be different because we will encourage slutty female nurses so they can pleasure us.

We will make it easier for them to climb the corporate ladder.
