I really got a kick out of your post. I ran a printed out a copy and showed it to my fundamentals teacher. She laughed. That is what we are working on now. So thanks for the laughs and good luck as you near your graduation!!! :)

I would love to have that t-shirt. Your nursing class has a good sense of humor which is what we all need going through these programs!

I've been out of school a long time (probably graduated before some of you were born) but I'm glad to see some things never change.

In addition we would have had:

Hair Loss R/T wearing those stupid nursing caps

Fear of going out R/T those awful pink striped uniform dresses with the white aprons
