I am currently in my first year of nursing school
. I have an instructor who is awesome. She cares about the students and doesn't want anyone to fail. I am all for that, I know she genuinely cares for us. However, I don't agree with what she's been doing. She gives away test questions for the upcoming exams. Other instructors are not aware of what she's doing, only the students. I feel like, everyone needs a freebie every now and then, but to always be trying to fish people out of certain situations is not going to help. Students need to do their part as well and not rely solely on the instructor's questions to get by. I don't feel it's right, and I'm here to ask you what I should do. I want to let the other instructors know but I don't want to get her in trouble because she just wants us all to pass. But we need to be responsible for our own education. By her giving us everything, how are we to learn? I don't know what to do. Please help.

I can't think of any scenario where making noise about this at your school will prove beneficial to you.
I'm not saying you're wrong. Of course, students should do their part and study, research, read, etc. That's a given. But an instructor who wants her students to succeed and is giving them the tools to do it is not your enemy here. You don't have to agree with her methods, but you also don't have to participate. She's not going to be able to give you or your classmates the answers to the all important NCLEX, which is the exam that counts the most.
I think that you, as a first year nursing student, have enough to worry about without making this an issue. There's no way that making an issue about this now is going to reflect favorably on you. I wish you much luck and success.
