    Nursing Quote:
    It doesn't matter about the amount of years you obtained as a nurse, it's about what you do in those years as a nurse.

    i was given a a scholarship by the 40 et 8 thru the american legion and instead of the usual thank you card, i made a mini scrap book, the intro page says "what i learned in semester 1..."
    pg1 - i learned i want to help everyone, but i also learned i can't help them all.
    pg2 - "i don't know, let me look it up" is an acceptable answer
    pg3 - a person's eyes can say it all when their mouth can't.
    pg4 - i learned to respect one's pride because it may be the only thing they have left in the world that is theirs.
    pg5 - sometimes the only form of communication needed is a smile
    pg6 - i also learned that nurses have a great sense of humor ...
    pg7 - student nurse dx - risk for increased intracranial pressure related to information overload
    pg8 - a&p in a nutshell: air goes in and out, blood goes round and round, any variation on this is a bad thing.
    pg9 - nursing school - boot camp for your brain
    p10 - coffee is a foodgroup! student nurse dx - increased risk for excessive daytime sleepiness related to altered sleep pattern aeb toothpicks holding their eyes open during study time

    "I almost learned everything I needed to know in life in Kindergarden, the rest, I learned in Nursing School."

    "Give me strength to understand the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things that I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."

    I have a file of these things. Some are really funny because I like the funny ones. Two of my favorites are "Welcome to S**t Creek. Sorry! We're all out of paddles" and "When the chips are down the buffalo is empty".

    Anyway, here is an older thread where someone else asked for suggestions of inspirational sayings. I posted a big long list from my file on it.

    To keep it all in perspective, I'm partial to my friend June's saying,
    "Sometimes you're the dog and sometimes you're the hydrant."
