    The only person at work I have given a nickname to is a young girl that came to us at 16, with very much to learn. She stood a whole 5 foot tall and after lots of guidance and TLC, she became one of the best CNA's I have ever had. The first day she came to my hall, I called her "Little Bit" and soon that was what everyone was calling her. I will never forget the day when she came to me and sat down on my lap and hugged me. She said, with tears in her eyes, " Mom, I have something to tell you, I joined the army." I cried, fearing what was going to end up happening with what was happening in the world. Today, she is serving with our troops, in Security. I pray for her, fear for her and long for the day that she comes back and sits on my lap again and says, "Mom, it's okay, I'm home." I sure do miss my girl. Please keep her in your prayers. To all our troops, God be with you! Duckie

    I'm referred to by another nurse as "OCD queen." Tend to want to clean things when there's time. (And you can ALWAYS make time .) I call her Sargent as she is in the reserves (think about her, please - she's in Kuwait.) Male ward clerk is "Soul Train" (don't ask me - no clue lol.)

    We had one gal we called "Mary Poppins" because she was so flighty. We have one now we call "Blondie" because her hair is five or six shades of blonde. I worked with one last night and called her the Cussin' Queen because every other word was effin' this and effin' that. Oh and then there was "Tinkerbell" because she was such an airhead and "Pinocchio" because of the big schnoz (sp?) she had and "Nervous Nell" because she was just a wreck! LOL, I wonder what they called me?

    In high school I used to have real long blonde,curly hair that just wouldn't stay straight or lie down. So, everyone called me either Twisted Sister or Dee Snider(lead singer of the group). P.S. The hair's a LOT shorter now!!! Ah, the days of our youth........ WW.

    I also came up with some nicknames for some of the nurses I've worked with or known. One I used to work with in LTC I called superstar because she could pass for a movie star. And there's this one LPN I also know as Miss Scarlet cause' of her smooth southern charm. I named one aide Wonder Woman because she could do it all and do it right the first time. WW.

    i was known as sug--like short for sugar-for a long time. my ex boyfriend introduced me that way(and that is all he ever called me) and everyone started to call me that. once we broke up i always introduced myself (my real name), so the nickname died off. i liked it though. shoulda kept it up.
