    1) When you forget to flush the toilet, you get a complete analysis with a plan on how to correct any noted problems.

    2) Thanksgiving dinner comes in pre-cut small pieces because she doesn't want to have to perform the Heimlich maneuver and be reminded of work on the only holiday she's had off in years.

    3) You've been awakened from a dead sleep in the middle of the night to find her shaking you because your breathing patterns were a little too close to a Cheyne-Stokes rhythm.

    Yes, Nurses have them, shortcuts. Not the ones that can place a patient's life in jeopardy, however. Planning ahead and prioritizing is a must to ensure safe outcomes. Some shortcuts may include, delegating as appropriate, stocking your uniform or lab coat pockets with items you will use frequently, documenting in real time. What shortcuts do you find work for you?

    How many people have lost weight in school? Are you exercising? Dieting? Or, just not enough time to eat?

    Sometimes it is hard to work during the week and on weekends and have any kind of social life when you are a Nurse. After a long day/night at work all you can think about is going home and vegging out in your fav chair. Who has time or energy for parties, a drink with friends at the local bar, or an extravagant date, movie, or dancing? How do you plan ahead and make the time to socialize?

    I remember when I was a Nursing Student studying for NCLEX. The family knew not to bother me. Sometimes, however, they couldn't help themselves and just had to knock on the door. One night, my youngest came in and said, "Daddy, can you stop looking at that Pyrex book (NCLEX) and play with me?" Of course, I couldn't resist and took a necessary and unforgettable break to play with her. I passed the next day. LOL!! Do/did you make threats if disturbed while studying for NCLEX?

    Once, I found an old car with my metal detector. Of course, it was parked in my driveway. Ahem ... where's your sense of humor? Seriously, as Nursing Students, financing our program can place any of us in dire straits. What have you done to ensure you don't have to exist on Ramen noodles and water?

    The Nurse-Patient relationship involves ensuring professional boundaries. Our boundaries allow for intimate entry into another person's life. Patients, on the other hand, might blur and confuse these boundaries and some Nurses may perceive boundary issues as threatening thereby rendering sub-optimal care. As a Nurse, how do you preserve boundaries during your professional nursing interactions?
