as we are all aware, nurses week is coming up. i've been looking at some nurse magazines and they have been advertising gifts and favors that companies can buy to show their appreciation for us hard working nurses. but one item has me curious... it's a shirt that says in wild colors "party like a nurse." what does this mean?! and how does one party like a nurse?! its even more confusing b/c the lady modeling the shirt is overtanned and bleach blonde hair...

so, how do u all "party like a nurse"?

My idea of partying like a nurse is to sleep soundly for eleven consecutive hours without being disturbed by the noise my neighbors make.

My nursing friends tend to do "pot luck" at somebody's house. If we want to splurge, we have it catered or go to a restaurant.

....hardly worth a t-shirt.

LOL, I saw those t-shirts and wondered about them too. Maybe nurses have a secret life I don't know about.

The handful of times I've been able to "party" with my nursing friends it's generally involved moderate alcohol consumption and complaining about work and telling disgusting, graphic stories about what we deal with there. I can't imagine that anyone who was not a nurse would want to tell or hear inebriated retellings of the worst enema experience ever (it involved a HHH and a dropped enema bag while the tube was still in the patient) or just what exactly that crazy old guy (trying to be a Cassanova at the ripe young age of 85) said to the 22 year old newbie.

Jello shots out of med cups? Popcorn out of *clean* bedpans? Mixed drinks in graduated cylinders? Hand sanitizer bottles in the gift bags? *NICE* trauma sheers as the door prize? I could go on and on…

perhaps it means to party for 12 and a half hours straight without eating or visiting the restroom!

I've GOT it! How about we all have a drinking contest?! We'll see who can drink the most bottled watter without going to the BR and then we'll bladderscan each other and see who's holding the most?! Man, I'm full of good ideas... lol

My husband can't stand the enema stories. I can't imagine why...
