  1. The day finally arrived: Forest Gump dies and goes to Heaven. He is at the Pearly Gates, met by St. Peter himself. However, the gates are closed and Forest approaches the Gatekeeper. St. Peter says, "Well, Forest, it's certainly good to see you. We have heard a lot about you. I must tell you, though, that the place is filling up fast, and we've been administering an entrance examination for everyone.. The test is short, but you have to pass it before you can get into Heaven. Forest responds, "It sure is good to be here St. Peter, sir. But nobody ever told me about any entrance exam. I sure hope the test isn't too hard; life was a big enough test as it was." St. Peter goes on, "Yes, I know, Forest, but the test is only three questions. First: "What two days of the week begin with the letter T? Second: "How many seconds are there in a year? Third: 'What is God's first name?" Forest leaves to think the questions over. He returns the next day and sees St. Peter who waves him up and says, "Now that you have had a chance to think the questions over, tell me your answers." Forest says, "Well, the first one -- which two days in the week begin with the letter 'T?" Shucks, that one's easy. That'd be Today and Tomorrow." The Saint's eyes open wide and he exclaims, "Forest, that's not what I was thinking, but you do have a point, and I guess I didn't specify, so I'll give you credit for that answer. How about the next one?" asks St. Peter. "How many seconds in a year?" Forest says, "Well, that one's easy, too. That'd be twelve." Astounded, St. Peter says, "Twelve? Twelve!? Forest, how in Heaven's name could you come up with twelve seconds in a year?" Forest says "Shucks, there's gotta be twelve: January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd..." Hold it, " interrupts St. Peter. "I see where you're going with this, and I see your point, though that wasn't quite what I had in mind.....but I'll have to give you credit for that one, too. Let's go on with the third and final question. Can you tell me God's first name"? Sure" Forest replied, "its Andy." Andy?!" exclaimed an exasperated and frustrated St. Peter. Ok, I can understand how you came up with your answers to my first two questions, but just how in the world did you come up with the name Andy as the first name of God?" Shucks, that was the easiest one of all," Forest replied. I learnt it from the song..."ANDY WALKS WITH ME, ANDY TALKS WITH ME, ANDY TELLS ME I AM HIS OWN. . . ." St. Peter opened the Pearly Gates and said: "Run Forest, run ---"

    "We could do it so that there is no shame or blame in getting the answer "wrong" and indeed in some questions the "right" answer might be one of several "rights"." quoted by gwenith Ask yourself this; "Would I rather be here, in this forum, or on the floor where I'm employed if I'm mistaken?" Again, I would rather hear/learn from my colleague's than a medical review board/attorney.

    Critical Thinking Snapshot for Nurses&Students

    Thanks to all for posting but as I pointed out, this exercise wasn't to question anyones nursing knowledge or abilities. As for those that felt it condescending, say that to the nurses now in prison or lost their licenses for negligence resulting in the death of their pt. It's on the tv, newspapers, lawyer ads, periodicals, and I could go on about deaths due to a nurses negligence. More than you think from situations such as above. I posted this with all good intentions of alerting my "Fellow Professionals" to be more scrupulous. I've 30+ years as a nurse, and continue to learn each and everyday as well as realize I too can make mistakes in judgement. About this being posted in the General Nursing Thread, IMHO, I feel that it's appropriate in all forums and levels of Healthcare Education.
