    What is even more astounding is when the almost 40 year old stands up, shouts that she has things she needs to do and does not have time for "this". Basically throws a temper tantrum before storming out of the classroom like a child. (So much for "professional" at work and school!) I can not believe the Dean of Nursing decided she needed to speak with the entire cohort about the many complaints she has received without consulting the only serious student in the class.
    And, for the record, the Dean of Nursing initiated that classroom meeting. Not students. Not 1 person whined OR complained about the blizzard causing our exam to be cancelled they ASKED why it took so long for the faculty to contact students when they decided to cancel the exam for the second time because another campus was closed. They asked why it was not possible to for the professor to lecture a bit longer on ABG's because more than half of the class still had questions. This class costs more than $6000 so they have the right to asks their questions. Especially when the tutor for the nursing program does not know the information either and tutors students by READING directly from the textbook. Finally not one student complained the the readings were too long and too many, they said the syllabus was confusing.
    Look at yourself and your behavior before you rant on here about all of us. Especially since many of us are members here.

    Before I was in nursing school I had no idea just HOW many annoying personality traits there are in this world. Sometimes I wish class were like Survivor and we could vote some people off the island.

    Most annoying so far is : The lady that won't cork it and let the teacher speak. YES. We know you are amazing and know everything and can do it better than us, the teachers, and the Dean. Why don't you let us listen so we can become as wise as you.

    LOL - Whiners are everywhere and at all level of education. There were students in my doctoral classes who said "this is not included in the syllabus, will we be tested on this?" Srsly.

    Hah! I've said this so many times since starting nursing school!
    I think I've been spoiled by being a stay at home mom. I never had to spend large amounts of time with people I couldn't stand. If I don't like you, you aren't in my social circle. Now I'm forced to be around obnoxious people!

    I love the vast majority of my classmates, but the whiners...oh, the whiners! They drive me batty. While they're busy complaining and ******* off instructors and classmates, everyone else is solving their problems.

    Seems like there is one of these in every class. Very frustrating.

    One stands out when I was doing pre-reqs in my psych class. He was always challenging the teacher and one time was asked to leave because he was becoming so belligerent.

    I could probably go all the way back to childhood and remember these kinds of students. Heck, I work in the school district right now and can foresee some of the kids I work with being a whiner in college too.

    Our school has tutoring, private time with profs, appointments with the DON, all for students to complain, vent, learn study techniques, some of the whiners are complaining about how they are paying for this program and should get a,b,c... and yes I am paying to and feel that I should not have to listen to a few students repeatedly complain over and over.

    I am glad there are my fellow classmates on here! I hope they learn some techniques on how to study, tools etc (I know I have) and use them for good! And I am well aware there are since I met so many when we were all applying :-)

    I guess the point you are missing from this is that the "whiners" have gone to the tutor. They have scheduled time to speak with the professors and they have met with the Dean regarding their concerns. The "whiners" have done everything within their power to get their questions and concerns addressed without impacting lecture time. In fact, so many students have done so, that the Dean felt it was necessary to come to both section 1 and section 2 and interrupt class to discuss the many concerns she has been contacted about.
    The program is grossly disorganized. You have experienced that yourself. I recall that you have posted to the class Facebook page asking questions about scheduling, complaining about last minute schedule changes and not being told when or where we need to be somewhere etc.
    We are all working towards the same goal, which is learning the material, graduating and passing the NCLEX. I can understand your frustration with this situation, but posting on here about the situation is not cool. You painted the entire class as unrealistic, whiny children when in fact there are just a few student that would be considered children or unrealistic. You are no angel yourself. You have vilified an entire class on here yet you legitimately threw a temper tantrum and stalked out of class before it was dismissed, you have whined in our class Facebook page several times about the inconvenience of not being able to schedule your life because the program is so disorganized. You claim you are professional at all times yet you did all of these things and you are on all nurses complaining about the whiners in your class. If you got to know your classmates and actually socialized just enough to be polite you would know that the girl you yelled at before storming out the other day has one of the highest grades in our class. The "whiners" are the students that are doing the best!
    We are not all young. We are not all failing. We are not all expecting straight A's with minimal effort on our parts. We are not all whiners. We are not ALL anything more than stressed nursing students.

    There were maybe 3 students whining? We have a wonderful class, with great enthusiastic students who will be excellent nurses some day soon! I am sorry if you are taking this personally/the wrong way. There is a place and a time for things, and what students where complaining about was the same thing, that was not going to be solved in that forum. I never have and never will trash my entire class, my school or faculty, yes things can be disorganized and sometimes scheduling is frustrating, but to linger on these issues is a waste of time. What is it you want done, need? I never got that from any student. I also heard one of the constant complainers got a high mark on her last exam, so what is wrong with that? That is super

    This is why I don't socialize much with other students. I often find them whiny and infantile, and I can't take their excuses. While I may feel the same way at times, I don't like to dwell, or discuss at length the wrongs being done to us poor sleep-deprived, time-crunched college students. I say if you can't handle it, then why are you here?
    So much truth to this. In my school, the people in Anatomy & Physiology I are often fresh out of high school and very unaware that college is serious business. They get a dose of hot reality in A&P I, because there is nothing easy about it. Many decide to drop the class and change majors. But there are still those who stay and complain.

    It makes me very irritated to hear students putting down professors when in fact it's their own faults that they aren't doing well. I make an A or a B grade on every test because I study my bum off for every single thing. It's not because I'm magically smart or I just click well with the professor. He does his job and teaches, I do my job and study. He's very fair and doesn't make the subject any harder than it has to be, and still I get people looking at me in disgusted awe when I say I'd love to sign up for this professor for my future classes and actually enjoy the subject matter. If you can't take the heat, people, go home! Nursing isn't for the weak, and you probably aren't going to last very long if you really dislike the subject that much!

    And before somebody else points out the irony, yes, we are whining about other people whining . Everybody needs to vent sometime!

    Their locus of responsibility is external. In all seriousness, they have the right to make suggestions and voice their opinions. Perhaps there are some things they are right about. I try to focus more on the lecture and my studies and save my "complaints" for the anonymous instructor and course evaluations and polls my college has us fill out at the end of each semester. Public complaints during lecture waste lecture time and gossipy complaints to other students serve no purpose at all. I think it's important to voice our opinions, but at the appropriate time and place. Good luck with school!

    Unfortunately many of the ones who aren't weeded out, end up right next to you in the working world. I understand in your situation that you are forced to listen to it because they are asking the profs these immature time consuming questions during YOUR valuable learning time (not to mention time you PAID for) Otherwise, whining at other times, I simply do not engage. This doesn't make me very popular, but I'm certainly not a nurse in it for the popularity. You sound like you're doing great and just needed to vent. You're absolutely right. Its so annoying.

    As a fourth term student I can tell you that they are not all weeded out! However, I am a firm believer that you get out of it what you put into it. Hang in there, keep your head down, and study, study, study!!! Good luck!
