You might be a nurse if.......

  1. You might be a nurse if............

    You avoid unhealthy looking people in the mall for fear that they'll drop near you and you'll have to do CPR on you day off

    You own more than three pens with the names od prescription drugs on them

    You've had a patient with a nose ring, a tongue ring and twelve earrings tell you "I'm afraid of shots

    You believe every waiting room should have a valium salt lick

    You have ever had a patient control his seizures when offered food

    You believe that God and hard work made us nurses and prozac made us friends

    You believe the best patients are SIR--sedated-intubated-restrained

    You hide on Thursday nights so you don't have to translate all the terms on ER for friends and relatives

    You believe that there is a special place in hell for the inventor of the call light

    You think pizza cookies and Coke make a balanced meal


    I got some of these from the web site a terrific website for nursing and medical humor and some came from so if you enjoyed these there are a bunch more at the above mentioned websites!

    Have seen these and variations of these and I love 'em! Never saw the SIR one before--now it's become my personal fav! Oh, and the seizures controlled by food; hehehe. Love it!
