    I loved this and wasn't offended by it at all!! I am a new nurse (older) but related to both the new and the old especially about the psych pts!! I think it is really important to laugh at yourself from time to time. Thanks for sharing it, taking it to work tomorrow to share the laughter!!

    After 7 months as an LPN and then 19 months as an RN, I find this pretty funny. Unfortunately, I still do get the gags with overly pungent body fluids:uhoh21: . I just have to learn not to take a deep breath, I guess. Thank God for peppermint oil to smear under my nose and all over my mouth and cheeks . (PS, did y'all know that taking deep whiffs of peppermint oil clears your mind and helps you think clearer?)

    This is an old thread. At least 3 months old. No need to get all steamed up again. Anyway I concur, I thought it was hillarious and so true! I passed it around when it was first posted and everyone got a kick out of it.

    I'm a nursing student, 2nd semester, I began my rotation into med-surg at my hospital 2 weeks ago and was lucky enough to land in with the greatest bunch of RNs I've met to date... at the end of a very long tiring evening i was doing my final charting and one of them laid this joke in front of me... I'll tell you i was laughing so hard 1/2 way thru i was crying... What a great way to end an evening... truthfully I'll be happy when vomiting is just a signal to call housekeeping...

    I'm an experienced nurse of 18 years and I thought it was hilarious and that some of it was right on the mark.

    still a student and saw a lot of truths and humor in it. the last 2 lines say it all. you have to be able to laugh at yourself and stuff like this or you won't make it.
