Gets up on one knee - page 5

It's been a little over a month since my drop from nursing year. Since I work with great people, everyone is supportive of me to be an RN. Thats what makes it so hard to accept failing over... Read More

    I gotta admit....Some folks can throw a helluva pity party.
    Brush yourself off and persue a nursing career if you think you can do it. If not then choose another path.
    Time to let it go and DO SOMETHING!
    I don't want to get personal or flame or anything like that but brother, you sure do seem to ask for it.
    SNAP OUT OF IT!
    I am now done with this thread.
    So let it be written....

    It's your choice...
    spend your life blaming others for your failures securing your own failure OR learn from your failure and grow stronger and succeed. Looking on a bb for sympathy and for someone to validate your excuses will do nothing toward obtaining your goals.

    My nursing instructor was a BEAST. She seemed to love to hand out write ups and push people toward failing or quitting. During most of that time period I honestly believed that she "was out to get me" for some unkown reason. I got over it and decided that I was going to complete my assingments and graduate whether she liked it or not.

    At the very end of the program when we had "proved ourselves", she became sort of a cheerleader for us. You could tell that she was very proud of us all. I got to know her better after graduation and she turned out to be a nice person. The thing was that she did her job and she did it well. She does not turn out bad nurses. She had to be tough to do that.

    I the adult world having a Pre-school teacher to hold your hand is not going to make you successful.

    My childhood best friend went through the RN program all the way to the last few days and failed. She failed one class for not turning in a paper and that kept her from graduating. Her stories about mistreatment and why it was her instructors fault got old fast.

    I said OK ! I have to admitt, I love allnurses.com and cry the blues to you and want sympathy, but enough now. You are a big friend when it comes to nursing. i could not have come this far w/o you. Your all right. You all have helped a friend (me) get through. I accept, and only felt bent out of shape for so long because I defaulting to thinking the instructors are our friends and nurture and all that. So now I know. I promise you I know because I go over and over what happened in my mind, but now it is getting better. No more pity party and no more crying about this. One more time, thank you for being here to give me all great advice and inspiration. I swear to you and myself that I will Never again talk about how this was not my fault. I turnt in rushed paperwork late and figured I would be okay doing that. I failed. Next year they will start me over where I left off. So I will be that much wizer, with all your help, and will still be myself, so much wizer.
    I swear to you and myself not to bring myself down over what happened and i accept my mistakes and keep marching to RN and beyond. So it is written and so it will be!

    we have given good advice, this guy obviously marches to his own drumbeat.
    we cant hear it........

    now he is marching "beyond rn" wow

    can we compare this to seeing a car accident or something very grotesque ?? we dont want to read it or reply but we feel compelled to ?

    many of his posts make no sense at all and confuse me.
    many of his comments are more than "odd and inappropriate".

    "lol. but it's okay to want to jump on me. i like to goof around :-)"
    "it blows my mind, but some women get nervous around guys, i guess some women will act funny and talk to you as if leading you to embarrass yourself. non-verbals, which i am aware of, indicate a person is off. it's hard to ignore anyone when your accute"

    confusing ? yes, but a perfect example.
    there is a time and place for everthing and there is no time to "goof around" on the job let alone as a student. did you "goof around" and make these nurses act/talk funny to you ? did you use your odd way of speaking and then they got uncomfortable ? nonverbals indicate a person is off ? off what ? "embarrass" you how professionaly or personally ? maybe you need to take your "accuity" down a notch or two. i would love to have these questions answered or the statements clarified.......


    been here done this and i smell this thread being shut down for his sake again ?

    one thing to be grateful for....he has stopped talking in the third person.
