I notice that so many of us have the same problems with instructors and clinicals, and I wonder why.
I'm just so exhausted from the politics of it all. It seems like instructors sit up on thrones and cast disapproving gazes at us all. The good ones are few and far between.
I'm tired of hearing one thing from one instructor and hearing something entirely different from another.
I'm tired of playing mind games, trying to figure out if my instructors are in their good moods before approaching them. Oh, you don't remember the classification of this med? Let's talk about it for 10 or 15 minutes. Are you telling me you came unprepared to clinical? You're dismissed!
I'm tired of instructors changing their minds all the time. You can only give meds when I'm with you. Why are you waiting for me? Give meds with your nurse!
I'm upset that nursing school is turning me into something I'm not: loud, aggressive, and out for myself.
I really do not like nursing school. At all.
I do love what I'm learning, though, and I love my patients. And I've put too much time and money into this to quit now. *sigh*
Thanks for letting me vent. Feel free to add your own.
