Had to share...there are (were) 4 guys in my class of 30. We have already had 10 people drop out after they found out exactly how much was involved with class and clinicals.
If that wasn't bad enough, within an hour of starting rounds last night, we had this alpha male go squeamish. Now try to imagine the stereotypical stud muffin...perfect hair, chiseled face, probably works out like it's a religion, basically a babe magnet...ok so this guy is standing there bedside with this LOL, and she made quite the BM mess in her bed. There was a very nicely filled bedpan sitting on the bed, and this guy is standing there looking like he was going to hock up a spleen.
He absolutely refused
to touch said bedpan, and in fact decided right then and there to quit the program. I didn't even bother to hide my amusement, actually I rubbed it in as much as I could before he walked out the door. Ain't I a stinker?
I am pretty sure he was only in nursing school because he believed all the nurse porno. Ahh, one less moron, thank you nursing gods.
