The different kind of nursing students - page 4

This might be fun. You all know the different types of nursing students you go to school with. For instance: The guy student who has the palm pilot with all the latest programs, which he plays... Read More

    Just b/c a girl looks good and dresses nicely, doesn't mean she's in it to marry a doctor. I think ugly girls need to get over themselves.
    No kidding! These kinds of stereotypes are mean and undeserving. I am a former actor/model who found my calling as a nurse, and believe me, I would not want to marry a doctor!!

    I love this thread! LOL How about the flunkie, who fails first year first semester, comes back and then fails first year second semester, and then TADA is back for the THIRD time trying to finish first year.... and this person is never on time for class, if they show up at all, they ask questions that people have already asked while they were NOT in lecture, and they are always trying to get other people to do their work for them and are freaking out because in 3 years they will have to be working. Ahem, if you cannot get it the 3rd time then there may not be a 3 years from now as a nurse!

    I'm starting to wonder what people might say about me?? :uhoh21:
    I have one to add though... What about the student that sits next to you in class, always writing something NOT pertaining to THIS class... We recently went over the study guide of an upcoming A&P lab test ( 5 chapter test!), and the girl next to me---I really don't mind she works @ Hooters --
    is doing a homework assignment due the week AFTER the test. Then she has the nerve to whisper and whistle during the test to get answers from me!
    Yeah, like I'm gonna get busted for you, Chickie! :angryfire

    The new-mom student nurse-you watched in amazement as she kept plugging away through her pregnancy, feet swollen, gag reflexes intact during clinicals, she delievered the baby on Sunday and was back to lecture on Thursday, never misses a beat even though she sometimes has to prop her eyes open during class, no one minds the sour milk and baby powder smell that floats around her because she's always got a smile - she's a new mom and almost a new nurse! Lots to smile about.
    Ohhh God bless her, she was in my class! LOL Had her baby Saturday morning, got out of the hospital Monday afternoon and came straight to class to take a quiz. She's my hero.

    Guilty as charged!

    I get top grades and get upset at an occasional B or, heaven forbid, a C. However, I don't complain about the test.

    I ask a lot of questions during lecture and I know I must piss off many of the other students but they're relavent and they're usually questions others want to ask but are just too shy or whatever. I've told my instructors that if I start going off the deep end, please shut me up and tell me to see them after class. It hasn't happened yet and I don't hear sighs behind me when I raise my hand. But hey, I could have a hearing problem. There is nothing wrong with a curious mind. Curiosity may have killed the cat but it got the nursing student into the program.

    Do you see yourself in any of these scenarios? Come on... fess up. Confession is good for the soul.

    Not to worry - no one is perfect. This is just meant to be fun. That's why I've also tried to post some of the people who were inspirations to me as well as those who were pains to me (as well as many of us it appears). I'm glad most everyone here has had fun with this, that's all it was meant to be (despite the few sour grapes from a couple). Just remember that all these you see posted here, you'll encounter out in the real world of nursing, plus many many more that might be worse (OMG :chuckle ). The best people you will work with are those who don't take things so seriously and let much run off their backs, they will become the ones you most want to emulate when you get out. Sometimes I see such periodic depression among students on this board. It's always good to know you aren't alone when the feeling rises up within you to strangle someone! Good luck, the semester is almost over!

    OK I'm The Class Mom. First week of school I gathered names & contact info, typed up, & handed out an "address book" for the class... complete with thumbnail photos so we'd remember who we all were by our faces before we knew names! I also typed up & distributed the class schedule in a more user-friendly format than the faculty gave us, created a group website just for the students in our class, and uploaded about 100 bookmarks on various websites (mostly gleaned from AllNurses threads) helpful to nursing students. :chuckle

    I admit to being an organized freak (to a fault, sometimes). I do this stuff for myself, so I figure I might as well share. Hey if it benefits someone else, and I'm already doing it anyway, why not! I haven't seemed to irritate anyone yet (except one gal who refuses to join the group website's email list because she "doesn't have time" for the occasional e-discussion that the rest of us share). Whenever anyone needs something, who do they come to? That's right, the Class Mom, lol. Greater than 90% chance I've got it handy, too!

    Wish we would have had a class mom!

    The studious student. In her/his back pack are not one, not two, but at least 4 - 1500 page nursing testbooks, at least 2 tape recorders and multiple notebooks. Sits in the front row but no one really knows her/him, disappears after classes.


    Yup, that's me, but I do try to get to know my fellow students!

    Let's not forgot, the student who's goal is to try a new type of alcohol every night, says she can't concentrate enough to sit and study, then WONDERS why she flunks the tests. Well DUUUUH!
