I know there have been many of these threads before but I have to vent! I am usually quiet in class, keep to myself, get my work done and do well in the class. Somehow some of the students in my... Read More

    You need to learn to be assertive. Being assertive does not mean that you are being aggressive or mean. Just simply standing up for yourself, while getting your point and feelings across.
    Someone else mentioned giving them the wrong answers. As fun as that would be, that is kinda passive agressive and probably would not be the most mature thing to do.

    Oh yeah, that's what I said!

    Look at the bigger picture bigmona, when it is all said and done, anyone in nursing school that doesn't take the time to learn the material and understand it won't pass the NCLEX and their education will be useless. You can't just 'know the right answer' to pass it, you have to actually UNDERSTAND and be able to APPLY that knowledge to become a Registered Nurse by passing that final Exam.

    Apparently, this problem will always be there. One day though their luck is going to run out...and hopefully no one will be hurt. Alot of these younger girls do not take nursing school as seriously as they should and try to get by like they did in high school. Take the high road, be polite but assertive, in other words help them but don't let them think you are there to support them in this endeavor. You have enough to worry about covering your own self. Good luck.

    I am not the smartest...I mean I have to study hard....but I hate that..

    I dont show off what I get but I am very proud when I get the hard earned

    I also dislike the know it all, or the one who got 108 on the quiz and is bickering over 2 points when they already have over 100...come on!!

    I remember something I used to hear alot with regards to these type of things..." People will only treat you the way you let them" It holds alot of truth!

    I have to confess i am this student you are speaking of. I know alot of people feel that way but 2 points is 2 points the same value to you as to me. Why you might be fighting for 2 points for a B and me for a A doesnt make either of the two less important, its all about personal standards and we should remember that its a competion with ourselves not eachother. So next time that student in your class is crying over 2 points and their A think of me

    I find that in nursing courses as well though. I just transfered schools in to an already-formed-thier-cliques-from-last-semester class. We were reviewing things and I kind of know what I'm talking about... thanks to that awesome externship I took last summer. Anyhoo, the best is when they gravitate toward you and ask for an answer, then question your answer like "well my friend said its done this way"... example... we did a med question.... basic "desire over have" stuff. And I explained the formula and her friend chimes in "no thats not it... its dosage ordered over whats in the bottle".... which is the same god damn thing. lol So the girl was like.. oh new girl is trying to confuse me. So instead of arguing.. I just walked away....

    ::shrugs:: I dunno.. I just wanna pass and graduate. lol

    Just the other day in my class a student was asking a question. The answer was clearly in our reading assignment and also we are having a guest lecturer next week on same subject. The instructor deferred her to read her book and then talk to lecturer.

    Student didn't like that and on break was making a big deal about how she isn't paying 10 grand to read her books, she expects the instructors to tell her!!!
