I obviously do my serious writing in black..but as for my fun little notes/memos I used a pink sparkly pen. Gotta have some fun! :)

I like the ones that I keep stealing from my orthopedic surgeon's office. :saint: Whatever they are, they write really nicely and are comfortable to hold.

I like whichever pens are in the office supply closet, pens that have company names, four color pens (my most favorite) and holiday pens - especially my giant Santa pen!

I use cheap black dollar store pens. I buy 2 packs at a time and keep a spare pack in my car.

What? Nobody charting with a Mont Blanc? Though I guess if you carried a Mont Blanc you wouldn't need a nursing career.And there are pens even more expensive that Mont Blanc's.

My only requirement is it has to be a clicker and I have to have two in my left scrub pocket at all times. I get nervous when someone borrows one and I don't have two. Stay back, Farawyn!

A friend cleared out her locker after working in a dept for 4 years. There was a grocery bag full of pens and whiteboard markers there. She foraged through it and there were some seriously nice ones that she had "borrowed" along the way.

Must be a clicker not a capper

Must be black

NO GEL !

Extra Bold at least a 1.4 but prefer a 1.6

I keep two on me at all times. I do not lend. I do not lay down

I will cut you if I catch you reaching into my bag for one. That is all.
