    I agree English is a difficult language, some say the most difficult. But ****, if you've been speaking it for 20+ years, it's just sheer laziness to not know the difference between their, there, and they're

    Obviously you missed not only the title of this post, but the body as well. I never said perfection was important to me. I realize people make mistakes, and that no one is going to be perfect. Some of this **** is just way the hell out there though

    I understand that some are not native speakers, people using phones, etc. but this even happened in nursing school with native English speakers. I don't go around correcting people at every opportunity, but I do have expectations for nurses, which, on further reflection may be too high.

    I really don't understand so many of the posters on this site both literally because of their terrible English and the lack of education that has lead to this. We're not English majors. Hell, my English isn't perfect. However, if I read a sentence on here and don't understand it because it has so many errors, that's an issue. Even if you can understand it, it can still look unprofessional to not be able to not make simple mistakes. I've seen this in student forums, RN forums, etc. I understand that our focus is supposed to be on clinical skills, but I expected more from nurses and nursing students. These programs are so incredibly hard. I would expect someone who is in or is able to complete these programs to know the difference between "two," "to," and "too" and "there," their," and "they're." But "knew" and "new"? Give me a break.
