Abuse at school

  1. 1
    How do you deal with student abuse from teachers in nursing school? Nurses are terrified to address this topic, some even to the point of absolute denial.

    What do you suggest to do?

    For the nurses who promote it, how do you justify it? I just want to know the truth is all, and to go from there.

    Public humiliation, racism, intense pressure to fail skills for specific students, teachers lying to students about class information...I could write all day long about it, it is a scandal

    Please, please change your posting name before your faculty sees it. If they haven't already.

    And recognize that many things that look mean to failing students, such as failing perfomers being put on improvement plans, required adherence to standards, making students responsible for getting information without being spoonfed, and discipline entirely unrelated to ethnicity but wrongly thus attributed, may not, in fact, be inappropriate to the practice of teaching nursing. Your list is quite general and as given could include significant or appropriate actions depending on perspective. Clarify with details, if you think you can. But regardless, do change your name and the name of the school in your post. Word to the wise.

    Don't worry Grn Tea, I am a coward too. That is why I post on the internet.

    But I don't deny the truth for something like that.

    Grn Tea...personality type.....INFP maybe?

    Just guessing that this is either homework or someone taking one experience at one school of nursing and globalizing issues that may or may not objectively be problems.

    What nurses are terrified to address this topic??

    What nurses promote racism & student abuse?? And what makes you think that they are?

    Very strange post.

    There are avenues to take to object to this behavior. However, if this is just sour grapes, then sometimes you have to decide if this is the hill you want to die on...

    Do you think abuse doesn't exist then Roser? It must have been nice not having abusive teachers.
