I thought it would be fun to start a thread dedicated to the things we hate that happen to us as students! Let's try not to focus on the annoying classmates we have but rather things like: I HATE IT WHEN I find out my... Read More

    I hate it when some clinical instructors decide to disappear during clinicals, or only want to teach a few of the YOUNG students, instead of the whole group. They only allow the young ones to try out different things, while choosing the older ones to only wipe butts.

    when you have a question they tell you look it up in your text.
    YES!! We have that going on in our class a lot too! I READ it in the text and want clarification, not to be referred back to the same book!

    Wow, it makes you wonder why so many of us want to be nurses after reading this. LOL!

    I hate it when I have so much homework that I have barely enough time to even tend to my own personal needs.... Just when I'm about finished with my last homework assignment, I get an email from my instructor about tomorow's simulation lab in which we need to research and pre-read about prior to arriving!!!!

    UGHHHH!!!!!

    I suppose it's all in the "name of nursing"!!!

    Here's another....

    I hate it when I ask such detailed questions via email, taking a lot of time getting down to the "nitty gritty" and the instructor only answers with a one sentence line! "Hey, thanks for the details (sarcasm).... Can you take just a little extra time and explain a little bit more in depth?!?!?" Just a note of frustration there! NOT what I'm looking for.... If I only wanted a one sentence explanation, I would've just looked in my book!

    Similar to the OP,

    I hate it when I've spent an entire day with a pt at a LTC, and find out a week later that she's had an ongoing case of scabies. There wasn't a sign or anything.

    I hate it when your classmates are divided up into different clinical groups, only to find that some clinical groups receive 'special privilages' (ie. leaving early, having longer lunches, clinical classes cancelled with a make up case study instead of a make up clinical day). And, it's even more frustrating that when you worked your butt off to impress your last clinical instructor, members from different groups are now in your clinical group and expect their new experience to be an easy one also!

    Thanks for the rant time!!!! That was bothering me soooooooo much!

    From today's clinical:

    I hate it when:

    Your nurse is having a really "quiet" day and you are left breathing over her shoulder waiting for something to happen

    Your nurse circles the unit with you in hot pursuit thinking you're about to help her gather supplies, meds, etc for the patient ONLY to find out she was looking for a chair so SHE could sit down

    (Don't get me wrong my nurse was REALLY good, but she was really milking this quiet day!)

    You politely ask for a patient's chart but everyone else screams "DOES ANYBODY HAVE 49B's CHART" finds it and snatches it from you.

    Doctors nearly knock you over because you're just that invisible to them.

    PA STUDENTS act all snooty with you. If you're so high and mighty please explain to me why your instructor thought it appropriate to have you shadow and ARNP today?

    This happened to my nurse today: Your patient gets your shift cell phone number from the wipe board and call it directly to ask if he can go to the bathroom. lolol I thought that was funny. He called her like 4 times for random stuff!

    Oh no he d'nt! That is a scream (of course as long as it isn't my phone number).

    I hate it when there is unnecessary drama in class and clinicals.
