- Jan 12 by 2bnursekisMy clinical professor wanted me to give shots to pts w/o me having the proper preparation. I explained to her that because I did not do it in the lab i wasnt supposed to do it on the pts. She screamed at me and told me to do what she asked. i was crying the whole time and she was telling nurses how students think the know more than the instructors.. She is a dumb woman!

- Jan 13 by futurenurseya33I had four family members that died within 3 months. So I decided to withdraw from the program. And it took 1 year for me to get back in which starts in 1 week.

At our school we have to take a pre-nursing class (Strategies of Nursing Success) I was told it will be a fun class to start exposing students to drug calcs and medical terminology. It was the worst class I've ever been in. The teacher was a b** to say the least AND I barely passed-we learned nothing and had huge amounts of homework-the class was 2 credits! I had to try and learn about 2,000 medical terms...and the tests were just like the NCLEX. It was a "self taught" class.
It has really taken a toll on my self esteem as the teacher told me that I'm not cut out for nursing....
Also, our nursing class is full of cliques and people who gossip...
- Jan 13 by ixchelI was diagnosed with a spinal condition mid-semester during my first semester of the nursing program. I was one of those patients you hear about in med/surg that goes to the ER for one thing and gets diagnosed with another. I spent the last 6 weeks of the semester in terrible pain, juggling school work, kids, physical therapy and doctor visits. I also realized there may very well not be a place for me in nursing once I graduate. Talk about a tough pill to swallow. I'm 32 with a husband and kids depending on me to get us out of the financial rut we are in right now. Three more semesters left. And who knows if I can get hired.
I'm between that semester and spring right now. Last week I was asked to give proof from my doctor that I'm fit for clinicals. I got a letter listing my specific limitations, and I am cleared. I worked my butt off to get that seat in the program and had to earn it back a second time. I am not backing down! I start school again on the 24th. I'm feeling a whole lot less doom and gloom about my job prospects. It may still be a challenge, but I'll work this out. I'm good at thinking outside of the box.
