    It's like this at my school.. I'm a second quarter nursing student and a lot of students whine about:

    The test is too long
    Can't you tell us what will be on the test
    Why did you let us out 20 minutes early
    I failed my test because YOU (the teacher) didn't teach the material to us.

    It is sickening...and yes it gets to me at times...but just study and not worry about everyone else.....

    trust me I know...it will save you from exploding on your fellow classmates (no I haven't done it but really want to at times).

    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.
    I take it you are one of the whiners, or your friends are. Lol

    I am so sorry that you were unable to come to a public forum, privately without naming names, and post your concerns or complaints. I don't know you, and I don't know the person who attacked you, but I want share something with you...

    I have one of the most incredible instructors in the world. I learned more from her since I have been in nursing school than I have ever learned from one single person. She emulates everything I ever want to be and I will tell you something she told me... "Kill them with kindness"

    I did not really pay much attention to that when I first heard it, but as I watched her deal with, let's call them "difficult" people, I saw her handle things with calmness and grace no matter what the situation was.

    As I started my next clinical rotation I had one of "those" instructors. Always right, ALWAYS the boss, and always trying to make you feel stupid. Each time the situtation would come up, I would hear Mrs. B's voice and I would just smile and agree. I promise you that I still wanted to take her head and smash it mightily into a brick wall, I didn't feel better, B-U-T!!! Pretty soon she stopped talking to me that way. I know it will not always work but you will garner respect and you will always be able to deal with any type of personality that comes before you.

    Good luck at your school and I hope that the other's there are not as vicious as what we got a glimps of here! Hang in there sweets!!!

    If anything, it just proves the OPs point. Some people don't know the proper time or venue to open their mouths.

    I'm not in nursing school yet...(this fall!!) But when was in A&P 2 last year there were a group of people in my class that were just like this. They complained about EVERYTHING! Study guides weren't specific enough, the lectures weren't clear enough, there wasn't enough time to read all the material...blah blah blah. Sometimes you just have to suck it up and deal with it!!! Nursing school is going to be 10x harder then A&P...I couldn't imagine these people in an RN program. People just need to realize that nursing school is TOUGH and we have to deal with what's thrown at us! I'm 21 and I felt like all the people in my class were acting like they were in high school...I ended up forming a study group with a few of the older adults in my class because I just couldn't stand the people my age! They complained about everything! Unfortunately, I feel like people from my own generation just had things way too easy in high school and they just don't understand that its not how things are going to be in nursing school.
