Hello everyone. Just a little background info, I am going to nursing school
for my bachelor and this is only the third semester of an accelerated program. My school is notorious for slacking, being rude, and not being organized. I've dealt with all these in the hopes that as long as I do what I need to do nothing else matters.
I've had clinical instructors who "don't like to work hard" as they themselves said, and now I have a clinical instructor who I really like and I am learning a lot from her.
We had our first care plan due and I got an A, turns out that another lady from the dept (who is not the chair, coordinator, or anything else but an advisor and who always wants to control everything) told her that she would regrade the care plans
who got A's. We heard rumors about this but did not believe them since this lady is not even our instructor so why should she be the one grading us. After this lady regraded my care plan, she scored me with an F!!!!!
A little background hx about this lady: she is rude, nasty, no one ever wants to register in classes with her because of the way she is. She has a lot of say about how the dept is ran and a lot of times things are done the way she says (for some reason everyone kisses her butt).
She has suggested to our med surg professor to only do case studies in class and to post video lectures online, this has not worked in our class since we all failed the first exam. She teaches med surg also but she is not doing that with her class, she actually teaches. And she was mad because no one wanted to register with her.
Everything set aside, I am just angry because ever since the program started, I've had bad experiences. I would understand if she graded me in a way that would be constructive, but she was just so rude and nasty, and also graded me as if I was in a master's program. Taking points off for not using a med surg book to describe the patho of the disease (which I used my patho book for that -_-).
I don't know what to do. This semester has just been hell and to add this on top of it. I really do not understand why someone who is not our instructor has to grade us. Is there anything I can do about this? I guess this is more of a vent than nothing else.
PS: I know life is hard and not everything will be easy and that nursing school is not easy so we should not be spoon fed. Trust me, I know.
