Unless you have the statement in writing, or taped with consent, you really don't have a leg to stand on. I wonder if this is the true reason or if the doctor chose someone he knows or is more comfortable with. Female patients have LONG been examined, and in some areas still are, by male practitioners...what's the difference? When these things happen to me, I say a blessing to the Lord above 'cause its usually to my benefit that something "interfered" with what I wanted. Good luck!
As many posters have noted in the past...we don't mind "helping" with homework assignments...we just won't DO THEM. What are your parameters? What have you come up with? You need to present more than just "here is my query...now someone do it for me". I don't know about other AN members, but this is starting to get really out of hand in my humble opinion!
As mentioned earlier, many schools recognize cheating. The fact that nothing is done is sad, but while the student is in school, the school is getting money. This is not just limited to nursing. Cheating goes on in many "professional" programs. The saving grace is students who really do cheat are weeded out with the board exams...they haven't really "learned" anything. As previous posters have noted, don't paint a target on your back with your fellow student. Keep you nose to the grind stone and continue striving to learn and "do it right".
OP, the fact that you question your "ability" is admirable! No one fresh out of school knows/experienced everything whether you are a nurse, nurse practitioner, physician, teacher, lawyer...the list goes on. School provides the bare minimum to pass the boards associated with the degree. You actual learning begins in your clinical rotations as well as your first few years of practice. I am always leary when someone "knows it all" during, right after, and even with experience. Medicine is constantly changing...no one can know everything! You will do just fine!
As per Jules...get it if you can. It is not cheap, but if you can swing the $731.00, it is nice to have. You just have to update your work area as necessary.
