    Ooooo, Now I know why you wear those black leather pants with the white shirt...Sorry mario, couldn't resist.

    I would think if you know about the possible problem with identification of certain tests or items you could just ask another nurse to verify your results. What's the big deal?? Just ask for a second opinion. I've done it with the hemocult slides and I'm not even color blind! Just make a minor accomodation for yourself to cope with the very minor deficit. Your intellegence in the matter is knowing about it and making the accomodation. It's like, not knowing the answer but being able to find or get the answer, makes you just as smart! Hugs.

    Ah, Mario,

    I have seen you use many photos of urself during the past months, but I have to ask about the one with long black hair. Is this you and are you wearing lipstick?

    If it is and your making a statement, then I have to say congrat on being so comfortable and brave about your sexuality.

    If I am wrong I am sorry and will delete this posting.

    Zharkin - erm, my hair is not black. This picture is distorded, probably the worst to date.
    I plan to quit posting my face and "my one day with a digital camera."
    I changed my face avatar again.
    This is the only time in my life i could let me hair grow. I was an apartment manager, and knew they would fire me at any rate. It was fun to use those little clips, and I would notice I'd have to buy them from time to time.
    Also, my life IS a statement, caputured :-(

    I have worked with a number of nurses who had one or more color deficiencies. It has not been a problem. As far as test strips go I have not seen nurses use them in years. Except for some casual screening in an MD's office. Remember you are seldom alone and can always ask someone else if color distinction is important in a situation. It will not stop you in this profession.
