10 Things To Know When Dating A Nurse

what’s up everyone nurse Blake here and
in this video I’m gonna talk about things you need to know when dating a
nurse we’re amazing we’re awesome we’re
awesome we’re amazing I feel like everyone should date a nurse and I feel
like if everyone dated a nurse the world would be a much better place we like
sleep we love sleep we can take either a 10-minute nap or 18 hour nap we work mom
we love to sleep or when we have a day off chances are we’re gonna be tired and
we’re gonna want to just sleep just like a peaceful sleep all right just let us
sleep don’t wake us up our bodies will naturally wake us up we don’t need to
set an alarm or a timer we don’t need you to be our alarm or a timer all right
well wake up when we want to get up leave us alone
go do something like go hang out with your friends I mean people will be like
nurses only work three days a week so that means they’re off for four days
like they could take a cruise or they could go on a vacation yeah that’s true
I could schedule a cruise but I’d rather spend that time sleeping I love sleep I
sleep all day I feel like my family has thought I was missing before cuz I slept
so long nurses work some weekends and holidays a nurse may have to work like a
requirement for their job two weekends a month or one weekend a month or you have
to work two major holidays a year and that really stinks because we don’t get
to spend that time with our friends or family so just know that if you want to
take us out for a date on a weekend you better make sure we’re off that weekend
in all holidays so New Year’s Eve I love to go out on New Year’s Eve but
sometimes I have to work so unfortunately we’re not gonna be able to
celebrate together on New Year’s Eve but we will still celebrate it’ll probably
be like January 2nd or January 3rd the next Sam off but we will celebrate and
the great thing to know about work when a nurse has to work weekends or holidays
is they get extra money you get a shift differential or you get some sort of
extra bonus whenever you work there weekends or holidays number one because
no one wants to work them so sure if I got to work I want that extra money and
just so you know we’re not good with money so that money isn’t gonna go to
bills or something it’s gonna go to shopping we need time to decompress
after work after a really long shift when we get home don’t run up and give
us a hug or a kiss our scrubs are probably so dirty from all the contact
rooms and code grounds you don’t even want to know you don’t even want to know
like seriously don’t touch us let us take off our scrubs let us take an hour
shower or a bath change into our pajamas and then you can greet us and pretend
like we just got home and give us a big kiss and a big hug it’s just because or
so it’s a long day like ours we’re dirty like we don’t want to come up and give
you a hug get you dirty so let us just come home take a shower relax and then
we’ll come out we’ll give you a big hug story time
nurses love story time we can write a book for the amount of stories we have
just in one shift so few nurses work three or four shifts a week you could
write a whole like a series you can write like a Harry Potter series of
stories yeah we are gonna want to share those crazy graphic stories with you you
may not want to listen but guess what we don’t care you know we’re gonna tell you
anyways so these stories will pop up at any time in our minds typically at the
most inconvenient moment like dinner with your family we’ll just get this
idea like oh I gotta share this crazy graphic story and it’s gonna make
everyone super uncomfortable you’re probably not gonna want to finish your
meal but it’s a story that we wanted to share with you and your family and
whoever else is around so if we share a story just smile and nod your head and
laugh at all the appropriate times and that’ll make us feel better
we know we’re sharing these stories but we ain’t gonna stop caffeine’s our
friend love coffee Starbucks vanilla latte you’ll win my heart if you have
those for me at the beginning of every shift we work along how many times I’d
say this our job is so hard our shift is so long like most
people working 8-hour shift and they go home we work 12 hour 13 hour shifts so
we need caffeine to keep us going and it’s not like a slow eight hour like
it’s not like a slow 12 hours like it’s a busy crazy on your feet running things
are happening all these time things are having things are happening and we need
either Red Bull coffee tea monster energy whatever and if we do have a
favorite caffeinated beverage if you want to be the most awesome person ever
have it ready for us when we walk out the door and that’ll be a big surprise
and I’ll help us it’ll be a great start or day all we talk about is nursing I
talk about nursing all day when I wake up in the morning when I go to bed at
night when I’m shopping at Target I talk about Nursing when I’m shopping at
Nordstrom Rack atop about nursing talking about my family talking about
Nursing when I talk to my dog talk about Nursing and no matter what anyone talks
about around me I could pretty much tie it into nursing and that’s gonna make me
want to share all those crazy nursing stories so just know we talk about
nursing that’s our life we talk about nursing all the time and if we take you
out with us to celebrate with our co-workers for appetizers all we’re
going to talk about is nursing it’s probably gonna drive you crazy but you
really can’t break us off that topic because it’s just what it is it’s what
we do and it’s really what we love sex huh speaking of snacks I have some
snacks I love snacks Doritos she’s it I had it bag of Famous Amos but I already
ate them oh yes all right so when we work we always don’t get time for a
30-minute lunch break so to get us through our day we have to eat like
snacks throughout the day so we take snacks to work right so if there’s ever
snacks in the kitchen cupboard and you want to eat some make sure you don’t eat
all of them because we’re gonna want to take them to work so if it’s Monday
night and you’re hungry but I work on Tuesday morning don’t go and eat all my
Doritos like you can have one Doritos but not
all my Doritos alright and when I talk about a Doritos bag like it says on the
back servings per container about ten and I like the term it says like about
because for me this is like about one serving so if we go to the grocery store
we need to buy two bags of Doritos and that could be one for you and one for me
same with the Oreos if these are in the cupboard and you’re hungry and you want
Oreos don’t go and eat both of the Oreos you can have one but save me the other
one all right cheez-its okay I like Chex Mix cheez-its
Doritos Pringle cheeto famous name is Chips Ahoy candy skittles nurse on a row
nerds lifesavers I eat a lot of snacks we worked longer than 12 hours so
typically when we get a job they say you’re gonna work from 7 to 7 or 6 to 6
and we typically tell our family like people like when you work you know 7 to
7 that doesn’t mean we get off at 7 o’clock we only leave work when the
patient’s safe the other nurses on our shift are doing good and leaving with us
and that the other nurse on the new shift is ready to take over a patient we
will never just try to rush out the door we always want to make sure that our
patients are safe and that our team is good before we leave so sometimes we may
not leave to like eight or nine o’clock and family and people who date us will
be like where were you at where you’re supposed to be home at 7 o’clock your
shift lived at 7 o’clock it should have been over at 7 o’clock but I have
patients I have a team I’m trying to help and everyone gets out on time
alright so be patient with us if you plan to have dinner ready it’s probably
gonna get cold so just wait until we say hey babe we’re
on our way home go ahead and heat the dinner up and that will be home so don’t
just don’t assume that we get off exactly at 7 o’clock or 6 o’clock or
whenever that time is we’ll get home when our patients are safe and our team
is good we love nursing I love nurse the nursing
is my life it’s not just a job for me it’s definitely a career so if you want
to date someone who is a nurse you’re also dating their career and you have to
love everything about that person and nursing is a part of us and it’s a part
of our life so just know that when you marry a nurse you’re married to all
their stories you’re married to all their snacks you’re married to all their
caffeine you’re married to all their sleep but most importantly we are
awesome and where we are caring and we really do Nursing is not for the money
because we don’t make that much money okay
oh I should have put that in there wait nurses don’t make that much money so
don’t try to marry us for our money because it mayn’t kind of money we’re
caring and we really care about the community we serve and the residents in
our community care about our patients and their families we care about our
families and our friends if anyone’s ever sick we basically are the nurse for
the whole family and we care about whoever we’re with so we care about you
if you’re dating a nurse or married to a nurse thank you so much for all your
love and support because it’s great to have a partner or have someone in your
life that really supports you and cares about what you do and it really does
make a really big difference so thank you guys so much for watching if you’re
