Quote from ~trini~
i attend medgar evers college cuny aas program and we had a clinical professor from hell this past semester. she picked on students & always tried to humiliate us. every clinical session she made it known that she had the power to fail us "evaluation's are comming up and remember it's up to me to pass or fail you". they tend to forget that being nasty to us does them no good. for we also have the power because we, the students, do their evaluation and what an evaluation she got. during our practicum she was oh so humble, lol. one day she gave us our patient's but the computers were down so we did not know what meds they were getting or what was even wrong with them. my patient's chart did not have all the info i needed, just got on the floor, so i had to rely on his pmhx and what they told me. she then saw me and told me give the patient his 1000 meds and that i was going to be evaluated. how i disliked that woman. my experience was minor compared to what some of my fellow classmates endured. thanks to nurse archer telling her what a good student i was when dealing with my patients got her off my back but unfortunately for some she lit a fire under their butts. i learned everything from the nurses at the hospital and nothing form my clinical professor this semester. the short of it is why are some clinical professors so crule? did they not remember what it was like?
i sooo feel your pain! we had a professor last semester that failed one person every skills lab. she failed me for skills we weren't even supposed to be tested on!
i find it so ironic that many of us want to be nurses because we care. yet the professors seem to not give a crap about any of us!
some want to make your life miserable because their nursing school experience was.
my supervisor said, " you are not going to school to become a nurse because of your professors." i always keep that in the back of my mind...this semster we have yet another difficult professor...and i'm just counting down the weeks for it to be over.
good luck and as the old expression goes, "don't let the bastards get you down!"
