SMYS ETIQUETTE for dummies. And you. 

By December 28, 2015Uncategorized

Yes, I said it.

Lots of exciting things happening this week behind the scenes. Working on NCLEX Prep stuff, working on Safe Staffing stuff, working on a totally different side project. I am a busy girl! Of course, Jalil Johnson is a hell of a lot busier, and better at being busy. Jalil is the admin who keeps me sane, and gets most of the ‘other’ work done. More on that later!

I have noticed that you guys seem to have divided yourselves into two camps. This is not good.  There are those of you who feel like you should correct everything everyone else does because you are SuperNurse, and those of you who feel like you are going to throat punch SuperNurse.


there was no point to this picture. i just liked it.

So, a few rules of the road here at SMYS:

1. I forgot to mention…’s Christmas…..I gave the INFECTION CONTROL POLICE THE DAY OFF. Forever. It is none of your business if someone is wearing acrylic nails, smug girl. Put a sock in it. They do not work for you.

2.  We ask that our members follow their employer’s social media policy. So essentially, I also gave the HIPAA police the night off forever. On the SINGLE occasion we had an actual questionable situation, we deleted it. We got this. Also, They do not work for you.

3. Most of the people here are college-educated. Some people do not spell very well. It is rude of you to point it out. So, I also gave the spelling and grammar police the night off forever. If you point it out in a public forum, you are a JERK. If you really feel like someone will benefit from your teaching and not be upset, send a PM. You are not responsible for their spelling or grammar, because they don’t work for you.

Do you see a trend here?

I am pretty sure that Nurses eat their young because they never get a lunch break.
