    Why Do Nurses Eat Their Own?

    What? How did you get that from her post? She stated that claims of bullying are sometimes false.

    Of course. And used the same grill for the GAI (Guys Afternoon In) cookout. I miss that show. It made me love Steve Carell.

    Not too unprofessional? Hell, who cares? I'm graduating!

    "And I knew exactly what to do. But in a much more real sense, I had no idea what to do." -Michael Scott. Pretty much summarizes my clinical experiences. Maybe I should do a more sentimental quote. "They may forget your name, but they will never forget how you made them feel" -Maya Angelou

    It's really difficult to choose a quote for graduation. Would it be inappropriate to use a quote from The Office or Parks & Rec? I'm being 100% serious.

    Cottage cheese mixed into scrambled eggs makes it more fluffy without having an overwhelming cheese taste, as is with other cheeses. Malignant hyperthermia is genetic and is an adverse Rxn to anesthetics, particularly succinylcholine. Dantrolene is used in treating malignant hyperthermia. If relocating doesn't work out, a friend has offered to put in a good word with the OR nurses at a local hospital for me. Hopefully, that won't be necessary, but I was grateful for her offer.

    Thanks for the insight! OR residencies seem more competitive than the other specialties, so I guess if I don't get accepted, I can always look into Med-Surg. I have a really good memory and love coordinating, as well as working with others and focusing on one patient. I'll apply to some OR programs and see if it's meant to be. A friend did offer to put in a good word for me because she knows the OR nurses at her hospital, but that means I'd have to stay in the Midwest.

    The more I read about OR nursing, the more I'm convinced that I will love it. I might be asking you questions, Rose, in the near future. And I have been following that OR thread. I'm wondering if I should do Med-Surg to get an overview of nursing skills, even though I am certain I will not enjoy it from my experiences thus far. ETA: A lot of nurses and physicians show up at my Starbucks while I'm studying. I'm always tempted to introduce myself and ask questions, but then I think "Mmm, better not..."

    Please, update it! I'm already on page 20 and DYING from laughter. I love the GIFs. I would love to do a similar blog when I become a nurse. GIFs have a way of describing the situation perfectly.

    Adding that to my list. I also found Nerdy Nurse, Nurse Eyeroll, Gypsy Nurse, and Not Nurse Ratched. I think these will keep me occupied for a while.

    If professors want you to be timely, I think they shouldn't consistently arrive 10 min late with an excuse and keep you 20 min after class ends. Researching physician-assisted suicide has been a learning experience. Promethazine can cause nystagmus. Any good nursing blogs? I'm trying to keep UTD with nursing-related things.

    People suck ((cali)). I hope that someone switches with you. Those selfish bastards (shoot does this count as profanity?).

    Touche. I am quite sensitive to the cold as well, so I might be one of the huddlers if I end up in the OR. And I found out that The Nerdy Nurse (apparently she's well-known) is coming to town, and our school is sponsoring some of the students, including ME, to go to the conference she is speaking at as a key-note speaker. I'm pretty excited!
