i am a nursing student that has been elected class president for the sna.
my problem is:
too many people are making a big deal, like calling me madam president, and making comments to the fact that i am president. i suppose that it bothers me sone because i am a student just like them, my grades are only average, and i only ran because a handful of students nominated me. i am extremely honored to have been nominated and having a chance in the election- but was shocked that so many had voted me in. i think (sometimes) even the instructors wonder why....
i want to be a good president, and to continue to be involved with this aspect of nursing school
, but how do i get ppl to stop making such a big deal out of it?
its almost as if i am in a fish bowl or something. for instance, i have been fighting a cold all week and i needed to go home yesterday afternoon because i could barely hold my head up, and one of the instructors said," you can't go home you are the president and have to set a good example." i understand her concern, but again i am only human...... plz help me rationalize this!
thank you in advance,
