10 Signs You’re Friends With a Nurse


You can call them right now, because they’re off. Or are they? Is this their weekend to work? It’s the middle of the week, there’s a good chance they’re off. Oh well, if they’re working they’ll answer you anyway or text you right back.

You can call and ask them about absolutely anything that’s even kind of a medical question, without any shame or embarrassment 🙂 What do I do for a bee sting? What do I do for this burn? The back of my throat looks red. What time of the month can I get pregnant?!? I have this weird rash in this weird place. I had sex a few days ago and then THIS happened.  I ate x, y, and z and now my poo looks like this :/ If you were to pick up their phone and read their text messages, you would wonder if the phone belonged to a doctor, a therapist, or a weirdo.

They can tell you which doctor to use in absolutely any specialty, tell you why you should use them, and tell you who to stay far away from (without actually saying “don’t use Doctor X”).  It’s like there’s a secret nurse code.


When you have dinner together, you’re either totally grossed out or completely fascinated. There is no in between.

They know how to hold their alcohol….but they have an antiemetic just in case you can’t.  They realllly like margaritas. And wine. In fact, there’s a good chance they’re having one right now…

They drink a lot of caffeine, but they aren’t bouncing off the walls.  Most can’t start their day without a big cup of coffee. It’s either black and strong, or full of some kind of special creamer (pumpkin spice, caramel, white-chocolate…).

You can’t watch Scrubs, House, ER, Grey’s Anatomy, or any other medical t.v. show without them telling you every single thing that someone is doing wrong and everything that doesn’t make sense.


They can dish out advice about loosing weight, but they could stand to lose a few pounds :/

You call them to see if you need to go to the ER. Um, you’re having chest pain? Yes! Go to the ER! You’re running a 103 fever? No! Go to urgent care…

If you’re ever in need, they are there for you! ❤ It’s just in their nature to take care of people 🙂

  3. Sooooo true!! Loved this post!! Though I’m a tea drinker for my caffeine.
    Love those 8am attitude adjustment parties, margaritas and wine, snacks and laughs!!! Everyone crashed out in my house til late afternoon/evening!
    I just Love the friend/relative that comes up to you at a family get together (this was just this past weekend) and drags me in the bathroom saying…..”I’ve got something on my butt, can you look at it for me???” Don’t you love it!!!???!!! So what do you do?? You have to check it out. I’ve had relatives/friends show me parts of their bodies they only show their spouses!! AND Before you can even consent to looking! Just because I’m a nurse, and worked in the ER (so …..”you’ve seen everything “) I MUST know, therefore I MUST check it out!!!! LOL!! I have to laugh!! Thank God that hasn’t happened too often!!
    Oh well, its family!!! What are you gonna do?? Can’t wait for those phonecalls/texts, I just live for that!!! LOL!!
