First clinical this am and we are all scared and jaws dropping because First thing this instructor said was "Don't EVER call me! If you have questions or need help with care plans
ask your classmates". She let us know that our clinical day is her day off (she is the med surg unit supervisor at the hospital we are doing clinicals at). She told us that if we ask her a stupid question during clinicals she will either not answer us, or tell us it was a stupid question she doesn't have time for. I am soooo not looking forward to working with this woman for the next 16 wks!:trout:
So how is your semester starting?

I would not make wave if I were you. I had a similar clinical instructor last semester. I did not want to ask her questions, so had my PDA with me to clinicals. If I really needed to ask questions, I would ask the nurses on the floor. One other thing I did, I read everything about my patients diseases the night before. Other students were always asking questions, so she was harder on them. I have learned when you ask too many questions, the instructor tend to not trust you. I have also learned all the answers were from my test book. So, as long as I read ahead, I did not need to ask a million questions.
