I just found out today that a good friend was dismissed from our program for failing sterile technique. I feel awful for this person because I know how hard they worked to get in.
The shock was that this person is a stellar academic student. Has made an A on both our exams so far. I just feel terrible that this one issue ended it.
It's so hard to see classmates leave
I didn't think it would be so hard. But when someone sits next to you each day, it really hits home when they're not there. So sad!
And then in my school, we have students having physical fights with injuries in the parking lot and fighting over who sits in a particular seat in the classroom and disrupting the entire lecture. And they get put on probation. And these are NOT stellar students academically. I don't think enough people are being booted from my program and they have good reason. Sterile technique can be taught far more easily than self control, ethics and tolerance.
