    thanks for the uplifting post,

    As always caroladybelle a very excellent post.

    ktwlpn, as always a very excellent post. This is not a board for 100% positive and uplifting posts. We'd all be bored very fast if that were true. But don't you think saying she writes like a two years old is a bit flamatory? I would get defensive too, that instead of offering helpful advice I was told I wrote like a two-year old. I like caroladybelle's post better.

    Child you ain't seen nothing. Unless you've been lurking for a long before you registered in June. Relax, it will be o.k. This is mild. :chuckle

    I know, I just hate to see any type of negativity. Veedot needs some help, not insults.

    OKAY, the whole situation stinks. I can't imagine being so close to graduating and either screwing up or getting nailed for something I didn't do, either way.... it's baaaad.

    Life is unfair. PERIOD. you are either going to rise above it and make it work, somehow and graduate or use this as a perpetual excuse for failure.

    you can't control what has already happened, you can control how you react and what you do next.

    However I do agree, that improved communication skills are a must to succeed in this profession. To me, all the slang and lingo bit, while fighting for your future and a carreer, can only harm you. Save that bit for the family and friends at home, you'll need to be concise, polite and professional through the process.

    I do wish you well, my advise is to fight this until you either win or are forced to accept defeat. If you loose, then apply at another school to graduate. If you can not afford a lawyer, contact your local legal aid, or call the nearest university that has a law school, you may find a final year student who will happily "represent you"

    good luck

    THanks-and I will agree that the comment you quoted sounded a bit harsh-but I think if anyone has a problem with it they should take it to pms...The originator of the thread was pm'ing several of us while we were responding to the thread-and making some really nasty comments.That is why the thread heated up....

    ren,

    You should not let the harshness of a few spoil the enjoyment you get from coming here to the BB and posting. Sometimes we need to act like ducks and let the water roll off our backs. Yes, it looks like there might be more to the story than what was posted....yes, communication skills and a good grasp of the English language is imperative for promoting one's self in this profession (And yes, bi-lingual nurses are a valuable commodity so please do not flame me for thins one...I am just making an observation).......yes, critisism could have been delivered in a bit more friendly manner (I believe it is called constructive critisism)....no, we are not all about the Kum-By-Ya and sit around the camp fire-while we toast marshmallows and sing.....we are about agreeing to disagree....we are a diverse people here coming from a broad variety of back grounds, cultures, experiences and languages.......no, we will not see things the same as another....that is what makes us unique, vibrant and interesting people. We must rise above the few that choose to be harsh and flaming. And if we are truely offended, we should be able to state that in a non threatening manner and if needs be, take it to the moderators and let them do their job so that we can continue to make this a better place for us all. Ren, may you have a blessed and pleasant weekend....and I wish this for all involved in this thread. As for the originator of this thread....if you are honest and sincere....you have been given some excellent advice and should consider acting on it. And might I suggest that the next time you would like assistance on a problem that you are having, maybe try to be a bit more clear in your statements....it could prevent future misunderstandings and fryings. Good luck in your troubles.

    I am now humbling stepping down off the Soap Box....

    If this person feels that she was discriminated against then she shoud contact her local NAACP they would help her. When I was in Resp Therapy school they got a girl back in school that did cheat. Try that and be calm I am the student Rep on the committee in my school for these situations and if you came in there ranting and accusing us of racism then I would immediately be put off and would not listen. There should be an appeal process and also your states board of college governers can be contacted. If the school receives federal funds then contact you state senator or represenitives office and ask them for help or who to contact Good Luck and I will pray for you to find peace in this Rhonda

    thank you Rhoresmith for you advice! and I will try it and hopefully if it doesnt work for me maybe this school will think twice about trying to do this to someone else?
