  2. We now have our own (exclusive) nursing comic. This is our first of many nursing cartoons to come. We are calling it "About a Nurse". We will be releasing a few comics per week.

    We hope you enjoy them!

    Please feel free to share this with your nursing colleagues. I'm sure they will thank you for putting a smile on their face.

    Can you relate? Please share your funny stories and comments below…

    It has nothing to do with not enough nurses. It has to do with hospitals won't pay to have an adequate number of nurses working.

    Merlee,try to lighten up just a little.If I have learned nothing else in my life,it is clear that in nursing, you have to have a sense of humor to help relieve stress,tension.They say "Laughter is like exercise for your soul."PEACE.
