are there nurses who ACTUALLY care ? - page 2

After a couple of months of volunteer time in the ER, I declined a near 6-figure promotion (another field) to reenter the classroom. I spent my weekends there instead of getting plastered at bars or... Read More

    i guess i was under the misconception (whe i wrote this) 1 needs to actually "care" about the patients to provide "quality" care.

    As in any profession, camaraderie requires everyone in the team to work for the betterment of the team. Are you upset that your presentation was cut because you wanted to be an individual and make a statement or because cutting you would harm the overall teams objective, which is to be successful in school?

    Sounds like you might have problems with working in a team...

    BTW, 90% is not a satisfactory grade. In my school that is a B and anything less than an A is unacceptable. Just FYI.

    In what way does "caring about the patients" relate to you not getting a longer time to speak in a classroom?

    So your classmates are "bad" and "uncaring" because their main concern re: the presentation was their grade? What on earth would you have them do? Take a lower mark on the project to be "nice" to you? They didn't get their 4.0's by being stupid.... Don't you want a high grade, too??

    What are you saying? A student with a 90% grade would be dropped from the program or something? That's pretty harsh.

    Asystole RN wow... what school is this? RN, BSN, MSN? link to the program? and what is the scale like here? i will be honest, i would probably not succeed here.

    and to answer your question... like i have stated before: my time was cut short because "during a presentation, if you do not speak, you did not present." sorry if that was unclear to you. there was a time limit... everybody else wanted to be an individual. in my opinion, my portion was short. apparently, it had to be shortened a bit more. i did not even get to speak for a an entire minute considering the information i needed to present.

    beeker i tried to use an analogy here. what they did to me and what they may do to their patient. hence, the incident with me "having to take a wheelchair"

    BrandonLPN : i had a 4.0 before entering the program... what makes you assume what i was going to present be detrimental to our grade?

    from what i am reading, some people find it hard to believe another person would do this for the reason(s) i am posting. "heck with him... all about me." inconsiderate, selfish, etc... people do not exist in your world? this makes me assume the people bashing me in this thread must have been spoiled children / catered to all their lives... but i know better than to think that.

    maybe i need to turn a new leaf and be the other person. it is a "dog eat dog" world. on the other hand, i know there is tiny bit of clarity in what i am writing because a few posters know what i am speaking of.

    You said "all they care about is their grade" regarding the project. What else should they care about?

    They cut your part because it put them over the time limit. In your own words you said they did it to protect their own grade. You said it as if it were a bad thing, as if their grade shouldn't have been their first concern. Of course it should be. Now, maybe they could have cut
    something else, I don't know. I wasn't there. But it doesn't sound personal. Your bit put it over the top, so it was cut. If you got a good grade too, who cares?

    a group of 6 with a maximum of 21 minutes. the other 5 people spoke for 4 minutes and i got 1 minute, if not less. it was the principle... and it screwed up all i prepared for. i did not have enough time to readjust, since we role played 30 mins. before class. we never practiced before it went live. my professor could have not been understanding... and this would have been a different story.

    I understand how you feel. You realized your calling and made that sacrifice to follow you passion for caring. Honestly, nursing school can be brutal and it does not reflect the professional at all. Even though you are dealing with overachievers, they will have the difficult time adjusting upon graduation. Most of the "book smart" nurses are the ones miserable because they strive perfection when they need just need critical thinking with care. My advice....don't let them corrupt you. It gets better after graduation and YES we care just as much as you do. Good luck!
    Such a great response that I'm sure the original poster will appreciate!!!!

    Well, yeah, I guess they should have allotted the time so everyone had a more equal part. I don't know if it was a deliberate snub or that's just what they felt they had to cut. What I, and I think others, took issue with was the fact that you insinuated anyone who puts their grade first is a "bad (potential) nurse". This is like when people complain about nurses who "got into it for the money". Of *course* they got into it for the money. That's what a job *is*. compensation for services rendered.
