I entered nursing school with a certain level of excitement, only to find that the course work is in some ways a complete waste of time. There is no need to ever learn about nursing theorists. Issues and trends is also somewhat of a joke. I am currently taking a research class in a BSN program. Why? So much time is wasted on these courses and little time is discussed about actual science. I am tired of learning about therapeutic communication. Since when is it o.k. to be programmed to say a cookie cutter phrase of "you feel sad. tell me more about your situation". If I said half of the things they consider the appropriate response, I would be looked at by my patient as if I was out of my mind.
It is embarrassing to mention NANDA nursing dx. "Disturbed energy field", who came up with that? There needs to be an overhaul.
