Ok, here is the jist. I am in my final semester of my BSN program working in my practicum portion, we are required 320hrs before graduation. I was assigned a nurse who is 24yo, and I am 36, while this was no issue to me and I thought everything was great......well about 9 12hr shifts into working with this particular person she out of the blue tells my overall professor that I am "not knowledgeable about my meds and/or Im incompetent"?? I was shocked when I had to meet with them(not her) and hear this from them, as she never once said a single word to me and it was all smiles and "hey, good job"?? So during the meeting I sorta vented a little to my professor and asked her to email that preceptor and let her know I wanted to sit down and discuss a few things with her. I guess the professor added some of my thoughts while I was venting and all of a sudden there were "more concerns that this preceptor had".....haha. Then Im back in a meeting with the overall practicum professor and another professor(the preceptor who made the accussations I have never seen since her initial complaint) because more issues came up yada yada yada. Now it was that I intimidate other staff nurses or something to that effect and I leave the floor to go smoke for 20-30 4 or 5 times a shift! I have been Army for the past 18yrs active duty.......and I would never ever ever "leave my post without proper relief and/or permission", I asked her every single time and she smiled and said oh sure we arent doing anything anyway(all the while she is on facebook and/or yahoo or shopping...which is against policy).....and the hospital said it was in everyones best interest that I not return....They "had an investigation"....to "collect the facts"....Its funny I was never asked about anything or my side of the story?? And that I had been conducting complete care, and charting on 3 of 4 of her pts every night I worked with her. To include all meds, she never stepped in the room once!! and I was working on a critical care step down so they have alot of hardcore narcs that could be fatal.....as I am incompetent and have no knowledge of my meds.......yet she felt comfy enough to treat her pts?? Ok, enough rambling...Any advice?? Should I seek legal help?? As all of this now has my school staff looking badly on me and seems like everything I say or do is held against me, meaning taken out of context and spun in a different negative light?? THANK YOU!!
