- Jul 9, '12 by RNnme3jniqua8604...don’t you know the devil will do anything to keep you down! i’ve also noticed the change in people, classmates mainly!! when i’m volunteering @ the hospital the cnas that know i’m entering ns this fall, they tend to turn their nose up @ me and give me attitude when i asked them questions. classmates seem to not want to be around you or distance themselves from you. they tend to classify you as a "know it all".... it is called 'jealousy" they resent the fact that they are not in your shoes. be proud of what you have accomplished don’t be shameful. you still hold you head up high...because you are sure to meet many more great people in.....43days!!!
- Jul 9, '12 by niqua8604Shellbie that made me feel much better coming from a classmate!!! It's just crazy how ppl change up on you. I will definately be walking with my head held high, because it's on to bigger and better things for me!! But its just so sad and unfortunate, because I never want to make anybody feel "less than" me. I try to be encouraging and uplifting. I guess I just want the same thing in return.
- Jul 9, '12 by RNnme3jI'm the same way...I befriend everyone and dont think I am no better than the next!!! But what's that saying Medea say (Tyler Perry) :spin:..."Some people come in your life for a season and you got to know when to let them go"!!
- Jul 9, '12 by WahineMakaiI ended up having to leave a job I'd been at for almost 3 years when I decided to go back to school (first for EMT and now for LVN)... I wanted to figure out a way to stay on part-time, but they weren't having it, and I was replaced. Since then, all of the people who said they were excited for me and would keep in touch, haven't. I truly think it's a case of frustration with themselves -- they're probably feeling stuck in a dead-end job, and are feeling a little envious that they haven't been brave enough to make that leap into living the life they've always wanted.
I've found, through many life changes I've made over the past 4 years, that sometimes people will shun you for your choices. And I don't let myself get too upset over it. It's a great way to find out who your true friends are, who truly loves you and who is proud of you and wants to watch you succeed.
Good luck to you and never, ever be afraid to pursue your dreams! You only get one life, might as well make it the one you want!
- Jul 9, '12 by mzrainydayzOh I can so relate to you because when I was doing prereqs I worked in a medical facility like yours and I couldn't believe how the other PCT's were not talking to me or they would leave me out of personal conversations. I am currently starting the RN program and I no longer work there, but at the time I was I was in the LPN program. Don't let the haters get to you, you have worked hard taking your prereqs to get into nursing school. Continue working and going to school even people like your family members will be jealous. Good luck in your nursing journey.
- Jul 9, '12 by bsnanat2OP, you have now entered "Adult World." You appear to be young and in youth everyone is equal and all have the opportunity to be whatever they want. Now, as adults, the real world hits you. You can not be "whatever you want," only what you are. At least, that is how most view it. Then there's you....all smart and hard working trying to improve yourself. You see, there's the rub....'If YOU do it, it proves that I COULD, IF I TRIED. Your success demonstrates either a flaw in me because I couldn't do it or shows up the fact that I'm not willing to put in the work necessary to "improve" or that I wouldn't do it. Either way, the more you shine, the more my flaws show up.' Again, not true, but how the immature see it. Those you are leaving behind will hate and they will wait and hope for you to fail. After all, 'who wants to be eventually taking direction from you!??!' Those where you are headed would like very much for you to know and stay in your place. 'Don't go around trying to improve. It might give others ideas.' Unfortunately there are people who like to see others fail and those who'd like to keep everyone else "below" them. Look for people who celebrate your choice and your obvious hard work. I wouldn't confront anyone with this, as they may not even realize they are doing it. Besides, they'll simply see it as you trying to "rub it in." Do your job, and enjoy this phase of your life. Your place of employment is where you go to earn a living, not to find friends. I hope you have a life outside of work. You'll find out who your friends are and that will simply your life tremendously.
- Jul 9, '12 by GrnTeaanother thing you learn in adult world is that for most of your working life, your coworkers are not your friends and they don't love and care for you. that doesn't mean they hate you or are trying to sabotage you, but it means that you are not that important to them. it doesn't mean you can't have a great time at lunch with them, or enjoy going out with the girls after work. it means that overall, work relationships are transient and not too many people get deeply invested in them for that reason.
- Jul 9, '12 by PatMac10,RNThat happened to be when I started last fall. It only comes from the minority in my situation, thank God. Some people truly are happy for you, but it manifests itself in a negative way. Many feel, even though they don't always realize/ admit to it, that you ate going off to better things and will forget people like them. Some are simply jealous or upset that your moving forward and accomplishing astonishing things. I think we sometimes I think we forget how many people say or wish they are going to be a nurse/ go to nursing school compared to the number of people that actually do it.
Despite what many say. Not just a tone and everyone can be a nurse, and I mean any type of nurse LPN, RN, and NP etc... That doesn't mean people aren't intelligent enough to do it however.
You are about to embark on a journey they many strive for, but not so many achieve. A journey that some dream of being able to make one day. Some are benignly envious and simply wish they had the situation to do what your doing right now.
Some people feel you will think your better than them, idk why. I guess from past experiences. Congrats none the less. You've made a huge accomplishment! Don't let anyone tell you otherwise! You are now on a path where continued excellence will be required and you will eventually accomplishing more and more as each semester passes and then the biggest accomplishment of the journey, becoming a licensed nurse!
- Jul 9, '12 by patricia0809Sorry to hear that!!! I'm going through the same thing right now. I work as a cna and I graduate from my RN program may 4 2013. People look at me differently and think that im better than them. The LPNs don't talk to me much lol. I had one situation when a nurse was asking a CNA for a skin assessment and she reported that the patient had a bruise but it was a hematoma so I told the nurse and the cna got upset but the nurse was impressed!! That cna never talked to me again lol. Don't worry about your haters. One day it will be you in charge taking care of them
