    Like when we are discussing emesis, BM's or ghastly wounds during our meal time without thinking of those unlucky enough to over hear us while they are eating.

    You are soooo right there. It is always up and out of my mouth before I think twice about those I'm with!

    i used to work oncology and we were always going to "nausea and vomiting" dinners. i'm a paper nurse now but i sure miss bedside nursing. my daughter and her husband are nurses and love what they do. my neice went into nursing after talking with me. she's a "baby nurse" so still getting her feet wet (maybe literally!) and says she really likes it but its scary.

    How are you going to put them on the quilt?

    I am going to embroider them. I think I am going to embroider them around the boarder of the quilt.

    Leave "funny" sayings to T-shirts. Quilts are to be a comfort. Use kind sayings. Even we nurses have a tender side. It's true we laugh about human problems, but laughing makes an unpleasant job less personal. Focus on love and caring - that's why we stay in this profession.

    I really like the ones from Sherry ! I am a nurse also, but I work in a dialysis unit. Here are some more sayings and some thoughts.
    " Where does it hurt? "
    " How can I help? "
    " I'll let the doctor know."
    Love is a verb.
    Sometimes anger is fear in disguise.
    Nursing is a gentle art.
    Care for each patient as if they were your own grandparent.
    Hugs are free.

    Speaking of those things nurses will talk about even at mealtime-----my dear recently deceased brother used to shake his head and say he could not have been married to a nurse----thought I had done things like---male catheterization that he would not want his wife to do.........My DH loves me anyway!

    I've been a nurse for 20 years. My favorite thing to say is "I'm a nurse. What's you super hero power?"

    nurses are angels in comfortable shoes.

    Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit? It is one of the Fine Arts: I had almost said, the finest of Fine Arts. ~Florence Nightingale

    Caring is the essence of nursing.


    Nurses can take the pressure.


    Nurses dispense comfort, compassion, and caring without even a prescription.

    When I think about all the patients and their loved ones that I have worked with over the years, I know most of them don't remember me nor I them. But I do know that I gave a little piece of myself to each of them and they to me and those threads make up the beautiful tapestry in my mind that is my career in nursing. ~Donna Wilk Cardillo, A Daybook for Beginning Nurses

    I'm an RN. And tonight at supper I was watching a show on Discovery about the selection process the Marines use to select candidates for the Green Berets. It is very physically and emotionally challenging and the guys were dropping out right and left and throwing up all over the place from the physical stress.

    I turned to another nurse that was working on the computer and said, "you know your a nurse when you can sit here and eat supper while watching a show with men throwing up all over the place!" LOL

    I'm a nurse and so far I think this is the best saying I've seen on here all day! (Not that I consider myself an "angel"...but definitely the "comfortable shoes" part!)

    What fabulous thoughtful considered sayings. I'm appreciating my profession more with each of these posts.
