WHAT IS A STUDENT NURSE? Between the innocence of an entrance exam and an R.N. comes a lovable creature called a student nurse. They come in assorted sizes, heights, and shapes but they have the same creed; to enjoy every second of every hour of every day off duty and protest with griping (their only weapon) when their forty hour week is over and their supervisors are in the snack bar. Student nurses are found everywhere! underneath, jumping from, swimming to and running through. Patients love them, R.N. ' s boss them, orderlies ignore them, doctors tolerate them, and Heaven protects them. A student nurse is truth with blood on her uniform, beauty with gloves on her hands, wisdom with penicillin in her hair and the future with a new baby in her arma. To doctors, a student nurse is an inconsiderate, questioning and intruding bundle of noise. When you want her to make a good impression, she becomes a giggling creature, bent on wasting as much time as possible and sleeping through classes. A student nurse has the appetite of a horse, the digestion of a disposal unit, the energy of a soap suds enema, the lungs of a switchboard operator, the imagination of a Vanderbilt graduate, the enthusiasm of Central Supply, the sharpness of a scalpel, the audacity of a nurse ' s aide, and when she gives pills she has five thumbs on each hand. She likes food, vacation, Christmas, money from home, love stories, boy friends, water in its natural habitat, doctors, working elevators, and days off. She is not for; books without pictures, operating room dresses, hair nets, study hours, metric systems, and case studies--not to mention clinics! Nobody is so late to bed and so early to rise. Nobody gets so much out of medical lectures and conferences. No one else can cram into one day, five enemas, twelve complete bed baths, five subjects, three trips to the morgue, two trips to the nursing office, fifty aspirins, set up a uniform, polish her shoes, stay out til twelve o ' clock, and still get along with her roommate. A student nurse is a magical creature — you can campus her, but you can ' t keep her out of trouble. You can put her on study hours but you can ' t make her study. She is your aide, your maid, your porter, your friend. She is a freckled face, pint sized, fun loving bundle of noise. But when she gets off duty with her tired feet and her aching back, she has a funny way of dropping into bed and saying, " Goodnight " , but not without those famous last words, " Check on me in the A.M. !
