    All:

    - I apologize if I came across too harsh.

    - Like the rest of you, I would like to really find out what happened with "veedot".

    - Until we are honest - first with ourselves - then with each other, nothing in this game (be it computer science (my current field) or nursing (my future field)) will get changed.

    - In order for "veedot" to solve her problem - she needs to be totally honest with herself.

    - Again, sorry if it sounds like a verbal attack.

    Veedot,

    So sorry to hear about what happened, regardless of fault. A few words of advice.

    Please learn to write/express yourself better. This is not intended to be rude, but people do judge you by the way you communicate. And the fact that you were within 1.5 monthes of graduation from any school, and type the above post, makes me have serious worries about the school system that you are from. I know that you are stressed, and we are not Rhodes scholars ourselves, but your post is very difficult to read. And if we are noting that, it must come across to instructors, potential employers and possibly patients. We all have spelling, and punctuation issues, but yours are to the extreme.

    It is obvious that there is much more to this story, than we will ever be told. But please do not use the "rascism" card. Everyone in this world has an "ism" that affects them. You will immediately alienate most anyone by using that label.

    John Coxey,

    While I may agree with some of your points, it might help to be a little more tactful in expressing them. Being rude generally gets one ignored and is not all that useful. (Wondering where Hannibal Lector is, with his quote of "Eats the Rude?")

    mr. john i am being very honest. and because you dont think so . im very sorry to here that . but what i wrote is the hole entire story broken down into a small version. so i could put it on this site but i could write a book about what went on in that school .and people would be amazed of all that has happen to me .and other students of color who went there and all of my classmates. stand behind me 100%. and they are scared to speak out now .about it until they graduate because they dont know what will happen to them .and thats the whole class who wants this school to be looked at. in a diiferent light because we can,t believe that in 2003 that this is still going .on and that they are getting away with this .so yes its alot more to this story but i just put in the facts. but you know what ?i am going to when i get time. i will start from the beginning to the end on what has happen to me. and then you judge but if you think that racism is not out here .then you need to wake john and take a good look around ????

    I live in your area and prejudice DOES exist-however it is reverse prejudice in that minority students receive favor....I also have seen that in the past few years the quality of students from our area programs has declined-both RN and LPN.I know nurses that speak just like this veedot-or Mario-or whomever....

    I was not aware that this board was for positive and uplifting comments only.I understood that when one asked for other's help and opinions that the members were permitted to give just that.If you are posting on a public forum you will hear opinions quite different from your own and maybe learn another way to look at your own problems.I believe that there is much more to this story and we'll never hear it.Just like that other student's story-I am sure that we only saw the tip of that iceburg also.....If veedot REALLY wants assitance then she'ss ask for it and TAKE it-intead of going on the defensive when anyone points out her weak areas-like her communication skills.How can she defend herself and fight for her position if the story is what she says?She can not structure a sentence....for goodenss sake...If I want a "cum by ya " message board I'll look for one...I come here to view differing points of view...

    Wow your a friendly one too! I do not want a cumbaya attitude either just a softer approach might not turn off nurses that are new or like me with almost 20 years experience.

    thanks for the uplifting post,
