3. What is rn short for?


Rn is a faster way of typing "run" that saves an entire letter. It is most often used to refer to running a machine or software, or physically running with your legs.

The abbreviation is primarily used online and in text messages. However, it is not very common so you may need to clarify what the sender intended to say.

Some people think it's a worthless abbreviation since it only removes one letter. And others think it's too confusing since it is more often used as an acronym for "right now" or "registered nurse."
