Does anyone else have this feeling?
I have been going to college for 6 years now (off & on b/c of 2 pregnancies). I completed all of my BSN prereqs and had a looooong wait list. I decided instead of waiting, to attend a Tech school for LPN so that I could work in the meantime and gain some experience.
I started out loving the school, the program, the instructors, even most of my classmates...HOWEVER, things have changed for the worse. Half of the class has NO business being in the medical field (not to be rude, but some of them are just plain dumb) We had a student in class say that as a home health aid she gave drugs to "retarted kids" she said she gave "Ridle" (I know its ritalin, Im just repeating what she said
) Then, someone today said that you put sardine juice on measles! I mean come on....The instructors do everything they can to hold their hands and walk them through just to pass the semester by the skin of their teeth! We spend half the class amusing ourselves with stupid comments and jokes throughout the semester. I have never been in a college course like this.
We are interrupted during lecture to be told that we can be put in a drawing for sending our friends to sign up for the program and to be told that we cannot wear our jackets over our uniforms in class. The lady who teaches the Pharm tech class in the next room will just bang on the wall very loudly if we are not quiet (the walls are thin). And we have a window to the hallway so that the salesmen, I mean admissions counselors can give tours of the class and it is distracting. Then, today, we had to watch about 2 hours of videos sitting on the floor b/c there are no chairs in the video room. My butt was numb!
In their defense, the do have a 100% pass rate for the 2 classes that have taken the NCLEX from my campus.
Should I just keep my mouth shut and go with the flow or do you think this is a rediculous as I do?
