-you're watching a medical show like Grey's and explain to everyone around you why something like that could never happen, or when you get excited b/c they're talking about something you just learned.

-you're talking to your significant other over dinner about something completely disgusting (to them) and don't even realize it's not polite dinner conversation.

-you think you might have every new disease you learn about...until you get to the next one.

-and, like others have already said, your family and friends expect you to know more than their doctor, asking you to verify if what their doctor told them sounds right!

LOL! I think you can add one...

You know you're a student nurse when the first thing you notice on someone is how good their veins are!

I have to agree with ~Mi Vida Loca~, I knew I was a student nurse when I also gave my daughter my old "cheap" stethoscope, (the one that I had before I got my litman), and she is constantly listening to her doll's heart and wanting to listen to my heart and bowel sounds! also she says she wants to be a nurse like mommy when she grows up, and I asked her "What do nurses do?" and she said "they clean up poop Mama!" :spin:

:chuckleSo true! I hear people bragging that are not in nursing school about getting an "A", and that is exactly what I think! I used to be upset not to get an A now I am happy to get a 78!

*When your son tells his dad that you were looking at naked picture books. When hubby comes to see what's going on.... you're working on A&P and trying not to pull your hair out. Daddy doesnt say a word, just backs out of the room slowly :)

It is not the grade that counts. My first job did not ask me what my GPA was. Nursing is not critical thinking it is common sense.

Good idea!

Last summer when I was working at my cashier job, I kept one of those Mosby's F&E notecards books in my purse so that I could study between customers when I was bored.

Or when you are the only one who has the first aid kit. Tums, bandaides, advil, benadryl, with you all the time...:heartbeat
