... post your kudos here.

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoy reading your posts on allnurses. You take good care to give good advice and you write very thoroughly and eloquently. I was also surprised to learn that you are in the process of becoming a nurse, and I could have sworn that you were one already from the way you express yourself. You are very knowledgeable about different matters concerning nursing, and I was particularly intrigued with your posts about NYC hospitals closing, particularly St. Vincent's. No doubt, you have the potential to be an asset to the profession.

I would have otherwise sent you a private message of praise but I figured it would be nice to see comments from others who feel the same way I do.

Just wanted to say thank you for being a good contributor. Keep up the good work!

Having read posts from both, I would say absolutely not. DoGoodThenGo posts intelligent & well thought out messages whereas you, well, don't. Just sayin'.

that's ok. but my question was not answered. i wonder when they signed up before or after me. after all 'dogood' is not a common name. btw i am not striving for intelligence or perfection. i know alot of intelligent ppl who are miserable and sad. i have enough knowlege to get by in life and i'm doing fine. i don't have to please people or worry about what they think of me. i just need to be myself. that's all that matters. if i'm not intelligent or don't post intelligent comments, it's no big deal. no one is going to stop 50 years from now and ask me either. i have come across a goo gob of 'non-intelligent' ppl in life, so i'm not alone.

say, how about those rockin' posts by dogoodthengo, huh?

i love her posts in this order 1. best pics of vintage nursing stuff ever. 2. posts about nursing schools in new york state and their history. 3. nursing articles and news she posts. thank you!

Well, this is a fine kettle of fish!:D

Am humbled and quite honestly surprised that you all find nuggets of interest in my posts. Again, thank you!

Regarding my nom de plume, sorry Johnny, but it had nothing to do with yours.

Do Good Then Go is my little variation of a motto used by one (or more) Catholic religous orders; "Do Good Then Disappear".

First came upon the phrase when reading a book on Saint Bernadette Soubirous of Lourdes. Then known as Sister Marie Bernard, Sisters of Charity of Nevers and assigned to the infirmary, SMB would instruct those she trained that after taking care of a "patient" to leave before they were thanked. Didn't really "get it then, but years later when watching the film "A Nun's Story" on PBS it kind of brought it home.

In the film "Sister Luke" in the world was the daughter of a very famous physican,proud, slightly stubbron, and quite her "father's daughter", including being gifted academically especially in the sciences. While SL wants to become a nun, she also deeply wishes to become a nurse and go to the Dutch Congo. Once in the convent SL has a very hard time following the rules especially obedience. Self will you see is a very powerful thing, and is said to die only 15 minutes before we do, or is that after?:D

Any way SL makes it far enough in religous life to be sent to another convent so she can attend "nursing" classes. It is during her microbiology class she makes an enemy and faces a crucial test. An older sister in the class (after being told off by the professor for not knowing the slide she was studying contained the bacteria which causes sleeping sickness (very common disease in the Congo at that time), despite having been stationed there for several years; sees the same teacher heap praise on SL because she gave the correct answer and is truly "her father's daughter"... Long story short when SL returns to the convent from class Mother Superiour sits her down and reminds her of their order's motto "Do Good Then Disappear", and asks if SL can and will fail her final exams on purpose as an act of humility.

When we do something for others it shouldn't be with the expecation of a reward or even praise. Leaving aside the fact if our employment requires us to render such services, we are compensated, it is an exercise in humility that we may gain our Lord's grace by putting others and their needs ahead of our own.
