When i was doing clinicals in NS, all nsg notes and med notations were done on the computer. Our instructors wrote the notes, then added our initials as well as hers. So, theoretically, that means that my instructor was the one vouching for my actions. I would assume that in this instance I was indeed working under her license. This must vary from state to state, though.
Listen, one thing is to be tired and frustrated and shorthanded while having a nursing student. it is quite another to be given complete and total attitude, some going as far as look at me in the eye and say "i dont do nursing students". I'm sorry, she must have been born a nurse.
While i nursing school
i came across a good deal of nasty nurses. Fortunately, i also had a good deal of excellent nurses, who were nice and polite enough to say "sorry kiddo, i'm really busy today so you'll just have to watch and stay out of the way, but why dont you do X, and if i can figure something out, i'll come get ya".
