Ruby Vee, BSN 67 Articles; 14,023 Posts Specializes in CCU, SICU, CVSICU, Precepting & Teaching. Has 40 years experience. Sep 11, 2014 My husband (also a nurse) usually outs me. It starts on admission -- he talks about how much he knows about this and the studies he's read about that until someone asks him if he's in the medical field. He then "admits" to being a nurse and says "So is my wife." And I'm just sitting there, trying to be a "good patient." It annoys the crap out of me!
