10 hilarious note cards for nurses

We nurses have our own brand of humor, don’t we? After all, if you’re not laughing, you just may be crying! If you’re trying to find a way to brighten up a nurse’s day or you’re looking for a smile or two yourself, you may like these great greeting and note cards we found:


1. Let’s make something clear…
How many times have we been tempted to say something like this to a visitor or patient who dismisses you and asks to speak to a doctor?

Do you want to speak to the doctor in charge, or the nurse who actually knows what’s going on?

    Love the hat in # 4 and love the part about a 2 hour lunch.

    Had a GI doc ask me once why he had so many nurse patients that had bowel problems. I looked at him and said “Well, if you have to go to the bathroom and someone isn’t breathing, which do you attend to first?” (I didn’t say anything about the ‘taking 10 mninutes to eat cheetos for lunch or the downing a can of Ensure at 2100 because you didn’t get dinner or…)You can’t hit them with a stick, but you would really like to.

    Many years ago I had a surgical intern w/me while I was inserting a foley cath–I had a little contest going on with the interns. I could insert them so quickly and do the surgical prep but if the interns wanted to they only had two minutes—then I took over–too much wasted time—this was on a female—when I asked him if he knew how to “do this”?–he said, “yep, I’m married!”.
    I THOUGHT I WOULD FALL OVER!! I gently told him that he was thinking about the wrong “orifice”.
    (It took him longer than two minutes–I took over…..)

    Nurse Debi says; If I have to pull up my big girl panties and deal with it one more time the elastic is going to break and I really will have to show my a**

    Love this one!!! i found a tee shirt once that said “Nurses; we are here to save your a%% not kiss it!” Now dont get me wrong, i love love love being a nurse, but sometimes there is that one patient or family member that stretches your last ounce of patience!!! I always try to remember to look at it from their side of the table!
