What do you come here for????

  1. Based on a recently closed thread....which will remain nameless....I have a question.
    Why do you come to this website??
    I come here for discussion, debate, and for the pure entertainment value of it all.
    Do some of you come here for psychological counseling, to replace human with machine?? Just curious.

    • Psychological counseling. I don't talk to other people around me about my problems most of the time. The posters at Allnurses help me make lifechanging decisions.

    I went for Purely entertainment, although I do get some good nursing information from the other forums.

    It's nice to get away from it all and have some fun on the Off Topic Forum !

    Purely entertainment, not to be taken too seriously.

    However, when I've had problems I've come to this board and presented them. Not as a replacement for human interaction, but from nurses who understand me.

    Also, in the past I've used other message boards the same way. I've developed some great cyberfriends who know me, and whom I can tell my problems to.

    I didn't vote cause I have more than one answer. I'm a student so I come here to learn "nursey stuff" and also for the mix of entertainment, discussion and debate. I love reading all OBNURSEHEATHER's witty comebacks!

    Shoot! There's not a choice for social interaction

    Really, entertainment, fun & visiting with the people in the box I have learned a lot, but I usually come here to escape the reality of what I should be doing

    Social Interaction = Discussion and Debate.

    I agree with Tabbeycatt! As a student, I have learned so much about nursing from you guys. The joys, the problems, the politics, etc.

    Other than that, I'd say I come here for entertainment value. Most people on this board have such interesting personalities!
