16 sure signs that you’re a nurse

How do you know you’re a nurse? Here are 16 surefire ways to tell!

 

1. When you show up to work on your off day for a 7 a.m. mandatory meeting:

 

2. When you arrive at work the next day, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed:

 

3. Two minutes later…when things get real and you start to regret your decision to get out of bed:

 

4. When the attending physician writes an order that makes absolutely no sense, no matter how many times you read it:

 

5. When your patient starts having family drama and you wonder if anyone remembers you’re still in the room:

 

6. When you try to send secret messages to your nurse buddy without anyone else seeing:

 

7. When you realize that you’ll never get used to smelling C. diff. Never:

 

8. When you’re overwhelmed and the charge nurse tries to assign you “just ONE more” patient:

 

9. When you hand over a patient to the incoming nurse and neglect to mention that he/she is a complete train wreck:

 

10. When you accidentally let unpleasant thoughts slip out of your mouth (hey, it happens when you’re hungry and sleep-deprived!):

 

11. When a patient starts a sentence with “Well, WebMD said…”:

 

12. When you start to wonder what will make you snap first, hunger or fatigue:

 

13. When you finish your shift, but lack the energy to make it out of the front door on your own:

 

14. When you get home and try to make sense of your day:

 

15. When you wake up the next morning and realize that you have to do it ALL over again:

 

16. When you remember that you’re an amazing nurse and no matter what you go through, it’s ALL worth it!

  • Grace Care Consulting is a great company to be working with. I have been a RN for 39 years, and at this time in my nursing career, I needed to have a job that would allow me the flexibility of setting my own hours and pace. Grace Care Consulting, as a family owned and operated company, gives the President and Vice President of the company a different perspective that allows for those working with them the flexibility they need and want. I am so very thankful to be able to work with a company which has caring and ethical owners. I look forward to working with Grace Care Consulting for as long as possible and want to thank Brandee and Chris for the opportunity to continue in my life long nursing career at a pace that allows me to keep my aging mother in her home.-Sally H, RN Chipley, FL

The flexible schedule afforded me the ability to return to my social work roots, working with members in the community, while still allowing me to be involved in school and family activities.
