People come on the board to vent and share. The experiences of some don't speak for all.
Look at the NCLEX forum. Those posters will have you believing that the test really is that rigorous and difficult. Actually...it isn't. In fact, 80%+ actually pass (PN AND RN).
For my part? I don't like to make anyone feel bad about themselves, but...I thought the exam was pretty easy. Too easy. There's a degree of difficulty, yeah - but it's 70% 'hype'.
...as it is with the rest of the nurse forum. I've not had the issues that some do. For example, my coworkers are great. We back each other up.
Whole lotta grammer nazi's on the buoard, though....LOL
Well, I'll tell you what I think (since we're all in the 'let's be honest' spirit): If a simple speech error is enough to wreck your inner world? I... wanna be you.
I want a life so perfect that I have to practically invent
things to mindlessly b.tch about -- and we're not even talkin' about whatever's going on in anyone's 'real life', here. I'm talking about people getting their panties bunched over some dialogue ... on a message board ... in VIRTUAL WORLD ....
Really? Is it that serious?
Somehow this thread spawned a debate! "Well - LVN/Pns and the like are American. Therefore --"
Is this happening? Are we really doing this...? LOL
Some have major problems with speech errors and such? Understandable. I, for one, tend to not care for individuals who spend unnecessary amts of energy + time making issues out of non-issues.
It's just... 'petty'.
"Someone on the internet didn't use the proper verb tense!"
Oh, no...! LOL
It's a small thing to be overly concerned with.
Go work at a soup kitchen...y'know what I mean? Organize a clothing drive. Mentor a child. Protest the wars. Find a better use for excess energy. Get 'peeved' about things that actually matter in the REAL WORLD.
I'm type 'A', yes (and quite anal)...but I like to think of myself as a 'sunnier' version(LOL) in that, unlike the bulk of them?
...don't take myself that seriously.
On another note, OP starts this thread to complain about those who complain about their jobs and misspell words. Yet, I see:
It would be refreshing to read items posted about LPNs doing their jobs and NOT complaining about the letters after their name, to me, this subject is old and stale!
I'm confused. Is this supposed to be a positive thread...? LOL
