    By-the-way Betts...Didn't you have one too many "o"'s in the Intro??? Thought that might be part of the test (she said with a smile)
    Yes Debby, I caught the "o's" also! Do you think that we're taught to be overanalytical as nurses???

    OK, I sent my answers. Let the fun begin...

    I've received many replies,and I thank you but,not ONE has answered all questions. The purpose wasn't for fun. Look again, and READ closer. We must strive too look at everything, not just what we see with a glance but,all the things that aren't obvious.

    When you walk into a client,patient,or residents room, what are you looking for? Those things that aren't obvious to an untrained eye; correct?
    I hate these!

    It's 11:51 here

    oh, i get it now, and I don't want to play. This is a giggle forum last time I checked. I wanted a laugh and I got one. It may surpise all of you to know that this little test if you want to call it that has been around for ages. I remember my english 8 teacher giving us one exactly the same except at the top it said. Read the instructions carefully. Down a ways it said put your name on the paper and turn it over. As you may have guessed everyone answered all of the questions.. the point, simple, read the question and know what it is asking...boring then,boring now!
    It was way more fun having a laugh at the silliness of our brains. I thank God every day for my gift of laughter becuase it is the best medicine!

    Hey Betts,

    I sent you my answers yesterday and I did have them all right! Instead of saying "you" for the last one, I said my name.

    Seems I've erred in posting on Wrong Forum but, please continue to reply. Couldn't hurt but,could help! I'll explain later.
    Thanks rhona1 for pointing this out.

    In Student Forum was where it was meant to be posted. 'GULP' and I'll make no excuses for this over-sight. In my position,it would/could have been costly!
