I still don't have a year's experience (August is when I was a full functioning RN). I loved having a student initially - I taught some things and felt like, "wow, look what I know."
Now I don't really care for it (most of the time). I really enjoy teaching people things - but when I have the same patient load, meds to give, antibiotics to hang, doctors to call, blood to hang, etc, and I start to explain everything it realllly slows me down. In nursing school
we never clung to the nurses like the students on our unit do. We had our instructor with us. She was the one to walk us through things and who we passed meds with. Many students also seem bored because people aren't coding and nobody is bleeding out....
I really try to be very nice, but some of the attitudes of the students are just terrible - "I didn't want to take that patient, I saw they had diarrhea" or "No you can go ahead and give the heparin shot, I don't want to gown up to go into the room." Also because of my age (many students are older than me), I've constantly had stuff that I said be questioned. Like stuff I 100% know. Very frustrating.
However there is another student who actually makes life a ton easier because she is smart and helpful and actually willing to ask when she is unsure rather than guess and risk a patient's safety!
Hope that wasn't too ranty. I do enjoy teaching, just wish I had the time to do it better!
