10 Reasons Why Nurses Make The Best Friends
Blakelynn Sherouse

Many have that one friend, but if you're smart you'll surround yourself with at least a few. Nursing friends are the ones you want to be there when bad goes to worst. Because of their hectic lives, nursing friends may not always be there when you necessarily want them, but they are definitely there when you need them. If you are lucky to have friends that are nurses or nursing students treasure them and treat them well because you have no idea the things their eyes have seen. But to those of you that don't have a nursing friend, these are the reasons they are the best.... So get on the hunt! Befriend a nurse!

1. They tell the best stories.

No identifying pieces are ever told of course. #HIPAA

2. They have a great sense of humor.

It can sometimes be a sick sense of humor but we can nearly laugh at anything.

3. They are licensed and certified to save your life.
