Don't you hate the arrogant students? - page 5

Today was the nurse orientation. Some of the students in the orientation came off as very arrogant to me. The funny thing about it, is that I did not see them as special or better. To tell you the... Read More

    Why are you guys responding to this thread? Much less, getting upset about it. I thought it was pretty obvious from the beginning that this was a joke.

    Talk about feeding the trolls. The OP must be really enjoying this.

    :chuckle
    Well, you may be right, yes. Yet, none of us know for sure if this is a troll post.....or isn't. It it is, we've simply wasted a tiny bit of time in replying....If it isn't, we have hopefully made points to hopefully.

    OMG!!! Lizz and I agree once again!!! That would explain this cold snap (h--- freezing over! :chuckle )

    I wondered where all the back biting and back stabbing in nursing school came from, and now, reading the OP and some of the f/u, I see.

    I would suggest that with this perspective and general personality makeup, perhaps nursing might not be an appropriate choice. Love of one's fellow (hu)man seems to be markedly missing.

    In time, you (OP) will realize that arrogance (your term) is spending any time assessing anyone on anything personal, particularly that which is unchangeable--i.e., outward appearance, intellect, family members, skin color, language or accent--summed up rather nicely in the cliche, "so who died and made you boss?"

    Tacky thread, tacky!

    what are you 15? so what are you going to do when you get a nasty looking pt? are you going to treat her/him different? remaining objective and non-judgemental are a few of the essences of nursing. get real and grow up! a statement like "i prefer to be friends with the cool and good looking people" makes me think admission requirements should include personality testing to weed out people like yourself. i apologize for being so harsh, but i'm just astounded!
    maybe he should wait til he is in school a bit longer -- don't know about you but my "coolness" got shot in the butt after the instructors got thru with me, i was a wreck! and the good looking? i gained weight and you shoulda seen some of my pimples! not to mention the circles under my eyes and my droopy hair -- and those uniforms! nobody looks "cool and good looking" in those!

    Holy crap..you make nursing school sound like the depersonalizing process that goes in in military boot camp!! :chuckle

    Come to think of it... boot camp would be the perfect place for this kid!

    I don't think this is a troll judging by his past threads. But I definitely did get a good laugh. I just graduated and thought I'd check out my last student threads. All I can say is this is a future nurse. Scary.

    hopefully sounds young. most of you had wierd and niave opinions when you were young. experience is what is going to teach hopefully. there is nothing you can tell a person to make them change what they think or how they view the world and people around them. hopefully will just have to experience for himself to learn. isn't that how it works for everyone? give him a break. sounds like age talking...nothing more. you can't nag him into changing his views ...personal experience is what will make him grow and learn. him being accepted into the nursing program might be part of the master plan for hopefully to experience some things that will change his outlook. jmo.

    Was your name change of the OP a freudian slip?

    aaaaaaaaaahahahaha...I didn't realize I said "hopless"..nah, I didn't mean anything by it. I actually had a couple of things going on over here as I was typing that. lol, thanks for pointing that out. I guess I'll change it...I don't want it to seem like I'm being "arrogant"

    Wouldn't want that! :chuckle I didn't think you'd meant anything by it...I really thought your post was a very sincere explanation of the OP's adolescent behavior.

    Don't worry, once the nursing instr. gets a hold of them, they will feel less than a bacteria. Trust me!
