We have Med-Surg Clinicals and Preceptorship already. And I've have a Nurse's Aide job for years. And I am a Sitter...
Nice. Really nice.

I read the 1st page of the threads that you started on your profile. Profile pages are open for everyone to see. I think that it is very disrespectful that you would stereotype like that, too. My goal of this thread is for it to be a positive learning experience. If you learn and share new things, the Nursing profession will get better for all within. For instance, I learned that in Community Nursing, you need to speak on a 5th grade level so that those people can understand you.
:studyowl: FYI - This thread was started in response to the Long-Standing "You know you're an Old(er) nurse if...). peace
Yes, I am aware that profile pages are open to everyone. However, just fyi, those threads you see under my name aren't necessarily ones that I've started, only replied to.

I was reading this old as dirt thread and hit thanks by mistake, which I did NOT mean to do... but since I did, I might as well reply and revive an oldie.Yes, I am aware that profile pages are open to everyone.

Razorback, I think if you look at your profile there are two choices: one says "find all posts by _________" and the other is "find all threads STARTED by ___________"
(But perhaps since this thread is that old, you've already figured that out, hehehe).
Sorry for dredging up the old thread. :uhoh21:
