  You Might Be a Nurse if...

  • when using a public restroom, you wash your hands with soap for a full minute and turn off the faucets with your elbows.
  • your favorite dream is the one where you leave a mess at a patient's bedside and tell a doctor to clean it up.
  • everyone, including complete strangers, tells you about each and every ache and pain they have.
  • you want to put your foot through the TV screen every time you see a nurse on a soap opera doing nothing but talking on the phone and flirting with doctors.
  • you can almost SEE the germs on doorknobs and telephones.
  • you can watch the goriest movie and eat anything afterwards, even spagetti with lots of tomato sauce.
  • you use a plastic 30cc medicine cup for a shotglass.

You know you're a nurse if...

You can only tell time with a 24 hour clock. 
Almost everything can seem humorous ... eventually. 
When asked, "What color is the patient's diarrhea?", you show them your shoes. 
Every time you walk, you make a rattling noise because of all the scissors and clamps in your pockets. 
You can tell the pharmacist more about the medicines he is dispensing than he can. 
You carry "spare" meds in your pocket rather than wait for pharmacy to deliver. 
You refuse to watch ER because it's too much like the real thing and triggers "flash backs." 
You check the caller ID when the phone rings on your day off to see if someone from the hospital is trying to call to ask you to work.

Nurse Saying - "You Might Be a Nurse If..." 

*You can drink a pot of coffee and still go to sleep in the morning.


*You believe every patient needs TLC: Thorazine, Lorazapam, and Compazine.

  1. The front of your scrubs reads ‘Nurses… here to save your ass, not kiss it!’
