That's right, I am now a male nurse in the state of Ohio. :awesome:

The maximum number of questions you can get on the NCLEX is 265, you have 6 hours to take it. I finished in 92 minutes (or 20.8 seconds per question). Rocked it.

So from now on I demand to be called Overlord Murse Burks. Anyone who does not do so will face an intraosseous IV, soap water enema, and five point restraints in a room with a patient with C-diff. :lmao:


Sorry.......nursing humor........

congrats burks! good going on that test!

hopefully this will give you a good bit of pemanant job security as well... most of the guys i've know who were nurses did so because they knew that if they took 3-6 months off to go hiking of fishing that they could always get a job when they came back!

Nah. I'm eying three different master's degrees. In flight nurse practitioner (NP), registered nurse anesthetist, or acute care nurse practitioner specializing in cardiac. I need to have a minimum of a year of ICU experience (will have that in 1.5 years, I get to hit the ICU quickly)....but I'll aim for more around 3 years. Should also have my EMT by then as well.


Hiker, I start my new position next week. :^_^: Job security is a go!

No I won't. I'll be at MedCentral. We ship a lot of patients off to Cleveland though (mainly heart cases that our open heart doctor won't touch). Some trauma patients as well. Eventually I'd like to work for their life flight team.

Well done Burks :D I'm thinking of going into either Nursing or Paramedic practice myself.

No, do it yourself. Or I'll do like what we did to someone with a temp of 104.6......throw two 3g buckets of ice on you. :lmao: Nice "bath" there right!

Friend of Hiker
Grats Burks, the medical field is definitely one that requires an overwhelming amount of both mental and physical strain. I wish you well in handing the insane hours and minimal appreciation - Your self-boasting attitude will certainly be a natural trick in keeping personal morale high.

Come near me with any intent of administering an enema and I will sue you for malpractice and charge you with sexual harassment. :weird:

I'd walk in all like:

Then go up to my favorite Dr. (Drake) and bust out:

Find that patient I can't stand and just stand at the doorway:

They'll start asking me all these questions and acting stupid so I'll bust out the:

After a few minutes of nonsensical jabbering.........:

Nothing out of the ordinary or anything I haven't done before, other than hanging blood.
