Thanks so much for all your replies. I guess I should have specified that due to a lack of instructors, she does teach classes and is very involved with the clinicals, drug calc (we have to pass a drug calc final every quarter, is it this way everywhere???)
She will be teaching my drug calc class this quarter and she has made it clear that she will be at every clinical site with us and tries to be present at the school labs as well.
I don't exactly hate her, but I get the feeling she makes a mental hit list. She is a close-talker, too. I don't normally mind, but she's always leaning in to speak to me and well, I don't know her that well. When I say lean, I mean share the same body space reserved for myself. i find myself leaning back in the opposite direction.
She has a nasty reputation, but I had been willing to see for myself what she was like rather rush to judgement. Oh well, its only 2 years. :trout: maybe some day I'll look back at this and think what a wuss I was being.
Thanks again for your replies, I'm just incredibly nervous and my first day is tomorrow morning. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeek!
