Meeting other alllnurses members in real life

  1. Have you?

    Edited: This was supposed to be a poll but my finger slipped and I submitted it before the polling questions were entered. The choices were thus:

    Yes
    No, but I've met people from other bulletin boards to which I belong
    No, but I'm open to it
    No and I'm not open to it

    No, not yet. At my LNC convention in March, I will meet several. I'm looking forward to it.

    How about you, Mercy?

    Hey siri, since you're online, do you think you can fix this and make it into a poll? (Questions in post above).

    No, I've not met anyone from allnurses, but I've met people from my autism board.

    And this isn't the same, but an old teacher of Nick's used to post to a teacher's board I visited (because I like to keep my finger on the pulse of what's going on in autism education). She made a comment about him (it was completely neutral and no one else would have been able to tell it was about him). The only reason I knew was because she has a very alliterative name and used a play on it for her nickname and in another post asking about afterschool programs, she made a comment that identified our's.

    Would love to meet some folks, and have talked with some people on the phone, but nope, never met anyone...yet!

    I met a couple but the situation was reversed--I knew them before I knew they were members. Does that count?

    Sure!

    I would like to. Some of my closest friends are from a running forum.

    Yep, I have met one nurse a number of times. For lunch. At her grandchildren's home - they live near me so she visits frequently. Although we haven't gotten together recently.

    I have a friend that I used to work with on allnurses who I was friends with prior to her joining.

    No.
    I really care about you all but don't want an employer to have a reason to discipline me for HIPPA violations.
    It is terrible to say but confronting management about staffing, lack of equipment and such causes them to want to discredit me.
    One post about a patient could get me written up for a HIPPA violation. I plan to retire from my job, not be forced out or worse.

    After receiving some really terrific Christmas cards I feel like I've already "met" some of our members

    Sure, I'd love to for real

    Guess I've met about 15 allnurses members so far....only 190,000 to go!
