12. It's your job to plan your life around the program's schedule, it's not the program's job (nor the other students) to plan the schedule around your life and all the problems you are having at the moment
Amen to that. It is still absolutely beyond me how some people don't get this.
13. When I take the time & effort to drag myself to school, it's not to hear about your kids...or your boyfriend...or how your husband doesn't understand you...or how your mom's being a total b****...I don't want to be part of any sort of "movement" to get someone on the staff fired because you don't like the way she teaches class...no, I don't want to go out for drinks after class...your typical NS student whining
will not change my mind. I could care less that either you or a member in your family have been stricken with absolutely every single disease process
we cover. Every time, before you raise your hand in class, ask yourself, "Will this be on the test?" If the answer is no, why would anyone else want to to hear about it?
14. When you're at clinical, having only 1 or maybe 2 pts to take care of, give the CNAs (caring for probably 3x that many pts) a break; empty the laundry bags...change the bedding...feed your pts their supper...don't ask the CNA to feed your pt for your because it's "their job," & don't expect a big thank you for it afterwards. You have one patient!
