I have been in my clinical class for 8 weeks so far and all I have been doing is vital signs and finger stick blood sugar. This is exacty what I did last semester. Some of my classmates have had the opportunity to do dressing changes, bladder irrigations, foley catheters, med pass and trach care but not all except one student in particular. She always gets picked. She has broken the rules and comes in during the other clinicals hours to do other clinical work. I told the instructor that I want to do more. All she said is, "You will all have your chance. One at a time." The teacher said that pretty soon we will stop doing all of these treatment skills and just do med pass last week.
I lost it and cried when I got home at clinicals. I don't know if I should complain because I don't want to get a bad grade. I volunteered to do these skills when we were asked to volunteer but the teacher constantly passes me up. This is really upsetting me. I feel like complaining to the dean. The teacher and I have a friendly relationship. I don't want to jeapardize this.
What should I do? I feel like transferring schools
or giving up.
