More You might be a Nurse if...

  1. You might be a Nurse if:

    You've been working toward your BSN for longer than it takes most people to get a Ph.D.

    You have a recurring nightmare in which you're run over by a portable X-ray machine.

    The hems of your scrub pants are held in with steristrips.

    You hear "TLC" and think "tube, lavage, and charcoal."

    You've ever used the phrase "health care reform" to instill fear in your coworkers' hearts.

    You're certain you've had the little girl "The Exorcist" is based on as a patient.

    You can take it as a compliment when someone calls you a dirty name.

    You think "Ask-a-Nurse" was most likely thought up by Satan.

    You've ever had to leave a patient's room before you started laughing uncontrollably.

    You believe chocolate is a food group.

    You've ever wanted simply to say "yes" when someone calls and asks, "Is my husband (wife, mother, father...) there?

    You have your weekends off planned for a year in advance.
