    Im curious as to what you posted that would get a reply that would create/cause this reaction in you
    To which post are you replying? When replying, all posts go to the last page; they do not go immediately after the post. It helps to quote rather than to reply.

    To see my friends on the School Nurse board.

    Since I'm not an English spoken nurse, I honestly love to see and learn many brilliant expression of experienced nurses in discussing subjects or matters that I'm interested in. I reply sometimes, expecting anyone will respond accordingly if my English isn't appropriate to the context being discussed.
    Other than that, I love nursing as it's been my line of work for around 35 years.

    Because I consider it my second family. I enjoy the things I read and participate in.

    Because I need to communicate with smart people in order to stay alive, and I feel more comfortable to do it in writing so that nobody picking me up for my ***damned accent.

    And, yeah, here I heard some "thanks for teaching me something new". It is kind of pleasant after being treated for years as "that too-smart-an-ass".

    I've been with AN for over 15 years and keep coming back for various reasons, even though I've been retired for a few years. It helps me stay in touch with current practice, and I enjoy learning new things. I also love AN for the humor and the friendships developed over time; I've even met a few of them IRL and correspond with a good number of them on Facebook. This has long been my "happy place" in the world of nursing, and I don't foresee a time when I'm no longer interested. I'm here to stay!

    I come to allnurses because sometimes I have to propose a scenerio that I am dealing with at work and like to hear advice from nurses from all corners of the field - not just the ones I work with on a daily basis and are close to the situation.

    Haven't used allnurses.com as much as I should have but I plan to use and visit more often. At first I used AN for guidance on career moves and certain places to apply
    But as Nurse's Week nears, I realize that not only could I get great advice, I could also give to others with my 25 years of experience.
    Thanks to you all!

    When I first came to AN, I was a pre-nursing student tryna figure things out. During my first year as a new grad, I came here to vent. Now, I'm just a bruh that likes to chat so I come here. I've always been a computer kind of guy. Browsing the web, watching youtube and twitch, and posting on forums kills time and helps me stay relaxed. It's also nice to help others out, post my opinion, read other people's opinion, and find out random things in nursing.
