    Default (Maybe OT) Medical quiz

    You might want to see how you do on this quiz. It's from a site called Women.com but the test isn't specially connected with women.

    I did too, Virginia! We're really smart, I guess.

    This board has a truly exceptional bunch of people.

    I was surprised that I got 100%, as I guessed on a couple of questions, using logic, but still guessing.

    Congratulating us as "RNs" at the end of the quiz bothered me a little. I have so much respect for nurses. They endure rigorous training and education to become RNs, as well as work their way up their career ladder with other degrees. They are in training all of the time it seems. I've met hundreds, perhaps a thousand plus nurses. I would estimate that 98% of them were excellent nurses. Nurses are exceptional people with loving hearts and a dedicated desire to help others. I'm always impressed, when I watch them interact with patients.

    Through the years, medical professionals have asked me if I'm a nurse, as I rattle off all I know about my sons' or my husband's condition. I always respond, "No, I'm not a nurse. I feel like comparing me to a nurse is an insult to nurses. I am a caregiver, however. And I learned how to be a caregiver from nurses. I also research everything."

    So, YAY! Nurses!

    Love & Light,

    My sister was an RN and they do indeed get a lot of training. Some nurses seem to know more than some doctors, and most are better at procedures like giving shots or drawing blood, I've noticed. They don't get half the credit they deserve.
