JUST THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE DON'T LET CLINICAL TEACHERS KNOW YOU WORK NIGHT SHIFT. I AM IN MY LAST SEMSTER AND WORK NIGHTS ON THE WEEKEND AND HAVE CLINICAL ON TUESDAY. WELL....... I GOT WRITTEN UP THE 2ND DAY OF CLINICAL BECAUSE I WORK NIGHTS. SHE JUST KEPT SAYING "HOW DO YOU DRIVE HOME IN THE MORNING" I HAVE WORKED NIGHTS FOR OVER A YEAR AND MAINTAINED AN A-B AVERAGE.
I AM VERY FRUSTRATED I FEEL SINGLED OUT.
I WAS NOT SLEEPY NOR DO I WORK THE NIGHT BEFORE CLINICAL IN FACT I AM OFF 2-3 DAYS PRIOR TO CLINICAL . SHE TOLD ME SHE THINKS I SHOULD QUIT MY JOB AND TAKE OUT LOANS. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAG
ANYONE ELSE GO THREW THIS???????

If night shift was bad for school, then i would have been screwed. No, it was not an ideal situation for me, but there wasnt much of a choice.
(However, i didn't work the nights before i had clinical)
