You know you’re a nurse when….

You meet someone for the first time and you notice how great their veins are before the color of their eyes.

You don’t have a problem talking about bowel movements and dismemberments over dinner.

You wear gloves to clean your bathroom.

You can diagnose yourself with cancer, a virus, and decide the needed surgical intervention just by palpating a lump you found.

Your family members start talking to you about what medications they are on and call you for medical advice.

You think people who can’t hold their bladders for 8 hours are weak.

You have your weekends off planned out 2 years in advance.

You appreciate how beautiful sunrises are at the end of your work day.

You love that when getting dressed for work the only decision you have to make is what color scrubs to wear.

When a stranger slips and falls at the store you walk towards the incident not around it.

You schedule your days off around phases of the moon.

You guess people’s past medical\surgical histories for fun.

You carry a CPR mask on your key chain\in your bag.

You know that the theme of a Holiday potluck is as important as with whom you will celebrating.

You know that laughter really is a form of medication.

Just a few Friday night chuckles ย ๐Ÿ™‚
