Sigh ive been trynig hard for a while, have 2 mos to go actually.
Today i made a mistake in terms of calculating the time due of an IV. She (our clinical instructor) yelled at me that the NOD looked at me, and my classmates said she was talking to me like i was a first grader. Then i made nurses notes and she said i was leaving too much spacing. To be honest i never have a problem with the other clinical instructors, just this one. I dont know how to deal with her.
I spoke to my dean before and she berated me for not having the ability to be friendly friends with this clinical instructor.
It was frustrating and i honestly wish i didnt have to be in nursing school. If i had a lot of money i wont finish the 2 mos left. IT was horrible what happened earlier. Really horrible.
I don't get the "biased" part. Are we to understand that this teacher corrects other students in a sweet, pleasant manner, but turns bulldog for you? On a different note, you cannot control the instructor's style, but you control wether you become a victim. Honestly stating your feelings right then and there puts the spotlight right back on the instructor. Say something like," I know I made a mistake, but that's why I'm here to learn and the way you just talked to me is not helping me. Now I'm embarrased and feel horrible. How can I learn that way?"
