15 Memes Only Nurse Friends Will Get

By Danielle LeVeck, DNP, ACNPC-AG, CNS, RN, CCRN 

Once you get started in nursing, you will quickly realize there are no friends in this world quite like nurse friends. 

It’s hard to be new on a nursing unit…

It’s even a little lonely at times…

You start your training with an encouraging, nurse preceptor…

Eventually you make nurse friends and your whole world changes for the better…

Seeing your friends at the beginning of the shift gets you pumped for the day…

Getting a train wreck admit isn’t as hard as it used to be… 

You have ‘your people’ to help with that painful part of night shift. You know, when you’re trying not to pass out, but have work to do…

Even when things are insanely busy for everyone, your nurse tribe still makes time to care…

Sometimes you can get a little snarky due to the nature of the job…

But when you try to hang out with people other than your nurse tribe, it’s actually really hard to relate…

And then you catch yourself trying desperately to explain what you do all day…

You quickly realize how much you miss your tribe…

And that they’ll love you no matter what…

You might even end up an ‘OG’ on the unit together…

But no matter what, you have a special bond through nursing that will never be broken. No matter the time and distance that separates you. 

Because there are no friends quite like nurse friends.
