    My signature is a scribble that somewhat resembles an ocean wave, lol. There is not one single recognizable letter, least of all my title.

    I rarely have to sign my name at work, and certainly would not sign it with a title outside of work.

    Yes we have paper charting at my work but I don't do much charting and at my old job we did electronic charting and I still signed my name and title an obscene amount of time every day. At my current position that's pretty much what I do all day is sign paperwork as an RN signature is required and my office mates are LPNs.

    My professional signature is different than my regular signature, so I never mix it up.

    Yep, I catch myself signing RN after my name frequently. Just force of habit signing it that way. I also have been guilty of writing a note to my kid's teacher full of the acronyms and symbols I use at work. I didn't even realize I had done it, and believe me I felt like a fool when the teacher had to call me to translate.

    I sign my name with all of my initials following in the professional setting because I worked hard with sweat and tears to earn everyone of those initials. I try not to sign like that in personal settings but unfortunately I've been known to sign that way on my daughters school papers a time or two.
