I have just completed my first semester in an LVN program and my second rotation unfortunately didn't go as well as the first. I felt like a total outcast in a small group of 5, including me. For example, all 4 of them would stick together and help each other with turning and bathing, but when I needed help, none of them wanted to help me and they would treat me as though I am invisible, as if I weren't even there.I discussed this with the teacher but she wasn't concerned the least and she wasn't a good teacher to begin with,she definitely had her favorites and I wasn't one of them. I'm not sure what the reason was for me being singled out. Maybe it was because of all of them are Asian, and I am not. I am a nice person and was more than willing to help out my fellow classmates, but when I needed them they were no where to be found. I felt as though I were an alien. Nobody deserves to be treated this way, especially when they haven't done anything wrong. Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks for reading.

Did you ever speak up and ask the other students for help?
What I meant was did you wait around for others to help you (assuming that if you were kind enough to help them, then those other students would reciprocate) or did you verbalize a request?
