Ramona -

By the way.. the feminine form of the word is "NED-ette". You won't be a NED, (too macho, you understand), you'll be a NET-ette!

Cheers

Medicine loves acronyms and you will encounter many on your journey. Some are good eg NED and some you don't wnat to see in your file eg GOMER (get out of my examination room- refering to people that refuse to stop coming back).
