    I have 2 people in my class who think they know everything. I think if you know everything already why not just test out of the class. Why are you here trying to be the teachers pet? Let someone else answer a question. Stop trying to know what the teacher is going to say before he says it, and stop letting the teacher know he was right by saying mmm huh shaking your head yes. Stop answering questions when the teacher called on someone else. I hope they are going the education route, because they sure love to teach the class and as always teachers are needed as well as nurses.

    That big vein in the middle of my forehead started to throb when I read this one. OMG!!!! What is with people like that!!! We had one in first term who didn't make it past math, she thought she was a gift in our class because she had been through almost five months of the program before and did not finish. She had the whole valedictorian dream and getting the best job of all of us in the class. I rarely root for people to fail but I just wanted to jump up on the chair, clap and sing when the Dean came in and asked her to get her things and exit the class. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That was satisfying, don't gloat and fail three classes all at one time! LOLOLOL

    i've always wanted to reply:


    "you have to know this so you don't kill someone when you're a nurse someday."
    right on!

    That has to be the most embarrassing. At least when you're humble people are understanding.

    And she was NOT humble. Kind of a loud know-it-all from the first day.

    She did get back into the program the next year. Last I heard, she became the nurse manager in a local ER when she only had a couple years' nursing experience. :uhoh21: I have a feeling failing out didn't do make her any less humble!

    It is frustrating... Isn't it??? My favorite question a few weeks ago was.... " How do you know if we are going to Lab if you don't take attendance?" (it is an independant lab that takes a minimum of at least 3 hours a week...

    I was like... duh.. if you don't go you won't know what the crap is going on! We have 2- 50pt Lab Practicals and 4 -10pt quizzes.... What do you think?

    And when we got to the part about hair growth in the Integumentary System..... Questions coming in about waxing, shaving, electrolysis.....What if I go to the tanning booth vs. direct sunlight..... I wanted to scream! This is not a beauty course....

    Anyway... I wanted you to know that it is everywhere..... Just know that most of these people won't see it through to the end! Good luck!

    Hi all, I have thoroughly enjoyed all the comments on this subject. It seems to me that it is the younger students who always ask this question. I have another experience to share along these same lines. I like to go to ratemyprofessor.com and see which instructors people liked and which ones they didn't like and why. I am constantly amazed at the number of poor ratings an instructor gets for simply expecting students to pay attention, take some notes, and put in a couple hours studying. I am so worried about whether I will be accepted into nursing school, then I look around me and smile. I have even had complainers tell me that I don't know what it is like since I am obviously a really smart person. This always causes me to laugh and explain that I am not naturally smart, I have to really study and apply myself. Maybe someday they will get the hint, but of course, if that's not going to be on a test............:roll

    Whenever someone asks this stupid question....I just wish the professor would reply with something like this....

    "Not only would you want to know this for the exam...but you might want to know this so you don't KILL someone if and when you become a nurse."

    Or

    " Do you want to be a nurse? If the answer is yes....then yes you might want to know this for the exam"
    My teacher has actually used the "you don't want to kill your patient" when someone asked something obvious :wink2:
