    I see a lot of tall nurses, too. I'm 5 foot nothing. They all look tall to me!

    Maybe all the short ones went into pediatrics so they could feel tall. Someone should do a study on it.
    I suppose that would be quantitative research since we're measuring.

    Well, I still catch glimpses of my cat, Fletcher, who had to be put down 20 years ago.

    As far as tall or short, it is said that God loves variety. You were maybe expecting maybe a more homogeneous population at your school? Probably you've been watching too much TV. Real life is not like TV, just sayin'. . .in case you didn't realize that.

    You really ARE relentless!
    And possibly in the grip of a Queen fixation!

    When I had to go to the laundromat years ago, the four tapes I brought with me were the soundtrack of Amadeus, The Best of Merle Haggard, The Best of Queen, and Talking Heads (Burnin' Down the House)

    That was back when I was a tall nurse. (just getting back on track w/ the title of this thread)

    10 things only tall nurses understand
    1. Having to raise the bed up to the sky when you turn a patient or insert a foley or IV. Patients don’t understand but my back thanks me!...

    Soon enough we'll have to add height to our forever growing list of things we don't discriminate against. All applicants will be considered regardless of height, expression of height in English or Metric units, height identity, height variance, height orientation, or height confusion.

    Does that mean I'll be able to get as high as I want to?

    I actually had an MD tell me O was 'only' 5'11.5" I said I was just going by 6' since stating 3/4" shorter sounds silly and as if I am trying to stay in the 5' range. I have had female nurses I am eyeball to eyeball with proudly tell me they are 5'7". I never.say anything to.them. Glad dad encouraged me not to be insecure but it would be nice if pink/purple scrubs came in 36" inseam *sigh*
