    No offense, it's irresponsible to treat your career something as important as nursing like it's nothing, but i did get a giggle :uhoh21:
    Heh, I think you're way too nice for your own good. Really, "irresponsible" doesn't even begin to cover it. When you look at the rest of the post [always late, sleeping when he is supposed to be caring for patients, etc], it becomes pretty clear that the OP should have been kicked out of whatever nursing program he was in. Honestly, I really hope he failed his licensing exam, because the thought of a person like this actually working as a nurse is more than a little frightening.

    LOL That's a very goood story! Thanks for sharing it!
    You seem to be in the minority here. Did you really read the other posts by all of those who find this story appalling? Try to read what I wrote if you have a chance.:wink2:

    I have read some of the post saying that if a student speaks poor english they shouldn't be allowed to practice.
    I just want to say that I just graduated and in our class we had several students with language barriers and they were excellent students. They worked harder than most of us to make sure that they became safe nurses and never did their language barrier cause them to be foolish. This post is about not taking school or the profession seriously and lack of maturity and language shouldn't be used as an excuse. I find it frustrating that there are so many students that apply to become nurses and only a few are accepted into programs and then you have these type of students who don't take it seriously.

    I believe that only "one" or "two" posts commented on a language barrier. I don't believe the article was about any language barriers what so ever. The student did not ask when he did not "know" what CR meant. It has nothing to do w/ language barrier. It has to do w/ his poor performance.

    I was addressing the post that said this was a hard working student with a languae barrier. Like I said language isn't an excuse to be foolish. I don't believe I said the aricle was about language, I said it was about a student's lack of maturity and commitment. And yes, it was only two post that talked about language.

    you are exactly the kind of classmate that makes my blood boil! :angryfire everyone else is working so hard just to survive through nursing school, so terrified that if they make one mistake it could be the mistake to fail them or end their career while you joke your way through it. some (like myself) are still working 40 hours a week to maintain bills and we make sure to make it on time and stay awake. i work 12hr nights 7p-7a and go to class @ 830am and i make it on time and do not fall asleep! and before anyone goes there...no i am not a 50 year old nurse. im 25 and single with no kids and a fabulous sense of humor, however, this story is not funny. it is sad. you are disrespectful and i hope you have either a.) learned from this experience and improved you behavior or b.) gotten a job far enough away from me that i dont ever have to worry about working with you.

    you are inspiring, i hope i can be as dedicated and strong as you in nursing school. :heartbeat

    You would probably be terminated that very day for endangering your patient's safety by sleeping, if you were in my program. And, really, ask your common sense why a doctor would need to know if a cardiac patient's toilet was functioning well, and what other things might you want to check for a full minute on a cardiac patient?

    You're whole attitude about this is worrisome, and your lack of commonsense is also.

    I was appalled by this story. I'm pretty sure SLEEPING during a clinical would get you completely kicked out of our program, nevermind just failing clinical. It is so unprofessional and irresponsible and not to mention dangerous-- that is pure ABANDONMENT of your patient. Grow up and take nursing seriously or GTFO.
