he/she is "looking down" on people because she is trying to promote professionalism???
and it is spelled ADVICE !
This really seems like a stupid question to me. :icon_roll Would you buy a car labeled as a LEMON from Joe Schmoe's car lot or a car from a reputable dealer?
If you are looking to get a bogus degree, give me a few thousand dollars, and I can print up your very own diploma indicating you are a nurse.
Did you REALLY ask this question?
Short answer...only YOU can decide if it is for you. Unfortunately, there are some negatives with nursing that you will experience in school and on the job. It is a profession like no other. And I don't mean that in a positive way.
Now the good news....there are some wonderful things about nursing such as being there for someone in their time of need and a lot of flexibility in job choices.
my personal experience has been attitude. Some of my coworkers think doing such and such is not MY shift's responsibility
so they don't do it. They are concerned only what is relevant to their specific shift.
team work is so important. But unfortunately, it is rare. In my experience, people tend to do ONLY what is necessary for their specific shift.
Hey everyone,,,I just had a lightbulb go off in this feeble brain of mine!
I went to the wrong school! Thanks so much for all your answers and feedback !
I really appreciate it !
Wow....I can see that a lot of nursing instructors answered here and I guess I should not be surprised that they are of
the opinion that it really isn't them its the student.
well ...I had a nursing clinical instructor who was going to be removed from teaching clinicals due to
many, many, complaints about her.
So when there were two weeks left of clinical (for the semester) she told me she had seen me
do something unsafe a month earlier, and had the write up in her office waiting for me.
She was very pit bull like, and she was not interested in my side of things whatsoever.
I withdrew from class.
So to all you clinical instructors who took the time to answer this post, why don't you do me a favor and answer the following
question....How does waiting a MONTH to issue me a safety write up, benefit my learning? Is it better for me to be in the dark
for a month about my mistake and perhaps continue making the SAME mistake, than to issue me the warning the same day it
I imagine it is.
