For Mario and those who have suffered in Nursing School

  1. I came back to this board, tonight just to check on friends I made while on the Nursing School waiting list and before I quit nursing school due to head games. Now I see that the worst has happened to Mario. I am so sorry and I know how you feel when your dreams are shattered. Mario and others who have suffered--please, know that things will get better. I have been accepted to graduate school in Education and I have been teaching science since I left Nursing School.
    Hang in there, Mario and all nursing school students and those who no longer feel they can achieve the dream of becoming an RN.
    Life will go on.

    I hear ya Bio,

    Working on a Biology with a stress in Anatomy myself. My favorite professor is trying to get me to teach Anatomy. I've been invited to attend a Cell Biology conference next month and it just gets me all giddy inside.

    I quit making plans, but I won't just quit.

    I can't seem to leave the AllNurses board behind, but I think about it all the time and nursing as well.

    Good luck to you.

    Where do I look to see what happened to Mario? I've been out of the loop for awhile.

    Peeps--I think the thread is in "Off Topic" and it's called something like "I've had it and need to move...what do you know about Rochester..."

    I was going to p.m. you with this, but thought there might be others wondering the same.

    BioRN----I'm glad that things are working out for you.

    That is not Mario in the off topic. Mario's is right here in general discussion under something like "mario ragucci got dropped from school' or something like that.

    It's probably stupid of me, but shouldnt' "school" be where you learn how to do something, and be supported in your "mistakes"and guided?

    I truly feel for students who have a hard time in nursing school; it seems so arbitrary, so subjective. If you have a personality clash with someone in authority, it can really be a decisive factor in your ability to get through it.

    Unfortunately, I've found that instructors like that really do prepare you for the world of nursing.

    Nursing school is only the beginning. They are trying to prepare you in a relatively short period of time to become responsible for others well being and safety. Discipline is really a major part of being successful in this career. Being on time with medications. Developing a routine for doing assessments...the list is too long to count. Yes it damn well IS tough. And its not for everyone. And? If you are going to graduate and care for me or my family members....I hope your instructors taught you well.

    I am an instructor/ educator and one of the things I think very important, is being on time for class and giving your due-papers back in time.
    My time is very limited in the 3 years I teach students to become nurses, so I can't wait for those, who think they are the only ones coming late and giving papers back too late.
    All the others will "suffer" from this too.
    Plus, when you are on the ward and want to go home after a 12 hour shift, it is not very nice to have to wait till your collegues come.
    And as for knowledge; there is no half truth about the anatomy of the heart or kidneys or brain. So you have to know what you are talking about.

    Sorry, I am very tired and cranky at the moment, after sitting here for 3 hours correcting tests, with a lot of b..sh.t in it! And yes, I don't work on sundays, but I haven't found the time during the week and the students have to get this test back tomorrow.
    Federal law here says, one week time to correct for the educators, which is pretty short.

    I had two of the very best teachers in the whole world. They were tough as nails and they prepared us for the real world. At our grad some students roasted them. Personally I thanked them for makng me a better person. I was the oldest in the class at age 31 3 children 2 still in daycare. I was determined and I made it. Thanks to two very tough teachers, I knew my stuff and my provincials were a breeze. Nursing is a tough job and if you can't handle the classroom how are you to handle the tough clients?
