    You have to start standing up for yourself, get a backbone, but you have too sometimes in NS do group stuff

    So glad I took the time to address the OP's original concern...now she's done with the thread and I have no idea if anything I said made a difference?

    Hate feeling like I wasted my time.

    everytime i read one of your posts, i have to comment out loud just how cool and levelheaded you appear here. i would not only want you as my nurse, i would want you as a friend!!!! you truly are a well-spoken person! the OP should block out all the rest of this blah-blah-blah and just read your post!!!

    I wrote her a PM...turns out she was feeling rather attacked and chose to try to stay away....I know how she feels...I posted what I thought was an innocent question that was information I had received from an RN and wanted some clarification or other thoughts, and felt totally attacked about everything but the subject I brought up....I finally asked a moderator to remove the post....it's kind of strange how that happens....

    I wouldn't take the lack of a reply personal.....

    Wow, now if THAT doesn't pick up someone's day, nothing will! Thank you so much, that was truly kind

    I guess now's not a good time to tell you that I'm really some wingnut with a laptop siting in a dark closet of my parents' home....Just kidding!

    Thank you again, that was so nice of you.

    Thank you....I was wondering if her question was getting buried; I guess it was. Hopefully she will see that this situation is not only surmountable, but might just work to her benefit. Hard as it is to see that now, of course!

    Never? In anything? Have you finished your program?

    If so, that's remarkable. I hadn't come across any that didn't have you collaborating on a case study, or ethics assignment, or presentation of SOME type. Very unusual.
