  1. What is the difference between an oral and a rectal thermometer?... The taste!

  2. Hospital regulations require a wheelchair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn’t need my help to leave the hospital.

    After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator. On the way down, I asked him if his wife was meeting him.

    “I don’t know,” he said. “She’s still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.”

  3. I honestly haven't heard any!

  4. Hahaha, no worries Kelly! Thanks for trying to think of one!

  5. FYI: All entries will be checked. If you do not leave a blog comment with a joke (even if you find one on the internet and post it) by the contest deadline, then your entry for the blog comment portion of the contest will not be counted. Also, if you do not share Nurseables with your friends by the deadline, then that portion of your entry will not be counted either.

  6. My personal oldie but goodie favorite:
    (located here:

    Three nurses died & went to heaven where they were met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter. To the first, he asked, "What did you do on Earth and why should you go to heaven?" "I was a nurse in an inner city hospital," she replied. "I worked to bring healing and peace to the poor suffering city children." "Very noble," said St. Peter. "You may enter." And in through the gates she went.

    To the next, he asked the same question, "So what did you do on Earth?" "I was a nurse at a missionary hospital in Africa," she replied. "For many years, I worked with a skeleton crew of doctors and nurses who tried to reach out to as many peoples and tribes with a hand of healing and with a message of God's love." "How touching," said St. Peter. "You too may enter." And in she went.

    He then came to the last nurse, to whom he asked, "So, what did you do back on Earth?" After some hesitation, she explained, "I was just a nurse at an H.M.O." St. Peter pondered this for a moment, and then said, "Okay, you may enter also." "Whew!" said the nurse. "For a moment there, I thought you weren't going to let me in." " Oh, you can come in," said St. Peter, "but you can only stay for three days..."
