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... Read More

    Oh geez, get off your high horses people and laugh a little. That was funny! If you don't think it was, you take yourself entirely too seriously. Thanks OP, made me laugh.
    A guy spends two years of his life on pre-reqs. Thousands of dollars on classes. Countless hours of studying and dreaming of being a nurse. He tells his friends, family, co-workers and neighbors how he's going to be a nurse. He gets into nursing school. He and everyone is so proud of him. THEN he has to drop out because he can't handle something. Yeah....you're right, that's hilarious.

    What it means it that HE never thought it through. You mean to tell me that this guy "spends two years of his life on pre-reqs. Thousands of dollars on classes. Countless hours of studying and dreaming of being a nurse. He tells his friends, family, co-workers and neighbors how he's going to be a nurse. He gets into nursing school."...and he never once gave any thought to the fact that there might be poo involved? He never had the foresight to shadow a nurse to see if it was right for him BEFORE he did all the things you mentioned above? It never crossed his mind to become a CNA and work in the medical field to make sure it was what he wanted to do and that he could handle it BEFORE doing all the things you mentioned above? Sounds to me like he was a victim of his own poor planning, and I find that ironic and amusing. He is EXACTLY the type of person I don't want to work with in the future, so I'm glad he's out. A nurse that can't handle poo is no nurse at all. All those things you mentioned above were so important to HIM that he turned and ran, giving it all up in seconds after years of work. Well, I assure you he never wanted it to begin with. If he had, he would have gutted it out and worked through it. As it turns out, he was a quitter. His investment in dollars, time, etc. means exactly as much to me as it meant to him...and that is zero. If it HAD meant something to him, he would have gritted his teeth and got through it. End of story. With time and perserverence you can get used to absolutely anything. He did not perservere, he did not even try. He turned and ran throwing it all away, thus proving he never wanted it. Why should I or anyone care if he doesn't?

    Irony is funny, it made me laugh. I don't feel bad about it, and I'll probably go back and read it and laugh again. You don't find it funny. Cool. Don't go back and read it again.

    You assume the worst in this guy despite knowing nothing about him. You find amusement in his failure. Because you and many others could handle the poo, but this guy couldn't, he's weak or didn't really want to be a nurse? Some times people just can't handle certain things. Shoulda/coulda/woulda been a CNA first or shadowed a nurse, but he didn't. I doubt most people take the time or effort to do that before nursing school. Doesn't mean I don't desperately want to be a nurse...

    I start nursing school in a couple weeks. I guess I should try and convince a friend to S themselves just to see if I can handle it.

    Well look how strong and cool you are OP, you sure showed the guy who you know nothing about but his physical appearance. We can all only hope to be as empathetic and non judgmental as you

    People have breaking points and the poo was his. He gave it a try and it was not for him. Grow up and get off your high horse

    How is this irony? How is this situation defined as "something that happened in the opposite way of expectation?"

    And I'm glad you don't want to work with the guy. Instead, you can work with OP -- who gets his jollies off when people fail at their life plans just because a dude benches more than him. :-\

    Honestly? Be glad he quit, students like that are a dime a dozen. The media has painted the medical field into something its not. As for not being able to handle personal care, well sorry that's what nursing is about. I'm not sure how he missed the memo but there are tons of articles of being spat and shitted on as a nurse. lol. I'd have laughed too, whether he spent 2$ or 2million, do your research people. CNA work is not for the faint of heart and neither is any occuptional field of nursing is when it comes to pt care. You feel bad for the guy who quit? Want to throw stones at OP for laughing? Well chalk it up to the pt who couldn't help themselves and had a cna student walk out. Yeah don't exactly what that guy over my loved ones so I'd have LOL too if he bailed.
