How do you KNOW you’re a pediatric nurse? Well, if you’re anything like our Funny Nurses Facebook fans, you exhibit one (or all!) of these telltale signs!

You know you’re a peds nurse when…

1. You can hook up meds and flush a central line to the motion of a swing, just because you don’t want to wake the sleeping baby.

2. You can sing the theme songs to Spongebob Squarepants and Phineas and Ferb…by heart…

3. You buy cute scrubs with superhero prints and holiday-themed scrubs to show off to the kids and brighten their day.

4. You’ve mastered the “grab it before they grab it” technique. LOL!

5. You carry nail polish and Hot Wheels in your purse…for your patients.

6. You have “brush your teeth” cartoon songs saved as your favorites in your YouTube account.

7. Your entire patient population laughs when you ask if a patient went “number 2.” LOL!

8. Your patient gets angry and calls you his/her version of a bad name: “poo-poo head.”

    And we know how to tape an IV site so well it really, really stays intact.

    You check all of your kids and all kids you meet to see how good their veins would be for an IV or blood draw.

    You’re able to dodge a projectile vomit stream like a super hero dodges bullets, and you also know that bodily function noises usually make kids laugh.
