    How Popular Were You When You Were In High School?

    I belonged to neither groups. I was shy (still am), smart, artistic, and a dreamer. For the most part, I stayed with the same close friends and family. I attribute my success to 3 teachers ... all during different phases in my education. All had a HUGE impact on me. ALL went out of their way to help me. (1st generation in our family to go to college)

At the same time, this index is used to display the What's New and other parts of the site. Thank you for your patience.
  7. Good day to everyone!! The Daily Diary got a new face. This is just the start in how we plan to improve the Daily Diary. In the next 12 months, expect some new features. For now, just post away like you previously did before. Every member can participate in the Daily Diary.

(Including profanity cleverly disguised - such as different spelling or a mixture of letters and symbols.) Information About Others: No potentially libelous information about specific schools, instructors, or health care facilities/entities should be posted in these forums. While it is important to be able to network, everyone should be mindful of the following: It is a small world - when we narrow it down to a state and throw in some personal info, there is actually a pretty good chance someone may recognize you if you are not careful. Your privacy is paramount to us. While this site is a wonderful place to vent (without excess personally identifiable details) it is not the place to express why ("x" specific person, place or program) is terrible. Gripe away, but since we cannot permit allegations to be made about named entities, your care in not naming them is very much appreciated. Please do not give out personal identifying information about yourself or others. Do not name names where anyone could identify any person in any facility including your nursing programs or place of employment. Advertising / Self Promotion: Please do not post any messages anywhere on this site that are primarily for the promotion or advertising of any website, email address, forum, business, MLM, activity, personal blogs, or other entities with which you have an affiliation including non-profit sites (ie. no self-promotion). We do not allow any form of commercial advertising in the bulletin board post, avatars, signatures, or user names. This includes using your avatar or signature to link to other websites or promotional messages that are advertising in nature. Please note, this includes links to political parties' websites. You may not post items to sell, purchase, or rent, including books, school supplies, uniforms, or any form of real estate. You may not invite, solicit or coerce others to join other community websites through posts, email, PM, use of ALLNURSES.COM, INC. membership list or any other resource within the ALLNURSES.COM, INC. We allow linking to other information websites, as long as it is for informational purposes and not for self promotion advertisement. Staff members may remove or edit links at their discretion. If you are interested in advertising to our nursing audience, please visit our Advertise With Us page. Copyrighted Material: No "spreading of copyrighted Material": Please do not upload, attach or post anything that is copyrighted or licensed without prior consent of the owner.

You can use the "search" feature to find topics of interest. English Only: While ALLNURSES.COM, INC hosts visitors from around the world, it is based in the United States and much of our membership is English speaking. Due to our inability to moderate threads in other languages, we ask that interactions be in English for the enjoyment of as many posters as possible. Please do not type entirely in capitals as it is considered shouting on the Internet. Staff reserves the right to address any issues of length, paragraphing, font size, or any other characteristic that makes a post difficult to read. Desiring to maintain professionalism, text speak (also known as chatspeak, txtspk, texting language or txt talk) is discouraged. Along with using proper English spelling and punctuation, this shows respect for the owner, other bulletin board members, guests, and makes it easier to read your message.

Presently, we have 20+ volunteer moderator and admin staff who monitor this board periodically. They are here to help -- please feel free to contact them with any problems you may have. They have been instructed to enforce our zero-tolerance policy. Our biggest concern here is the quality of membership not the quantity. We have no problem removing any individual who disrupts this bulletin board. If you are in a position where you feel you have been personally attacked, do not respond to that attack. Please report the post by clicking on the report button found within the message. (Triangle in the left-hand corner of each post). Expectations of the Administrators Members who repeatedly violate these standards after given a warning will be reported to the administrator. Only the administrator can make the decision to BAN a poster and ALL decisions of the administrator are FINAL.
