I'm a pre-nursing student, currently in a Microbiology class. I like it, and it's great!
In one of the labs, we were doing tests on vials of urine to determine if they have or don't have a possible STI or UTI. During this session, a fellow student of mine dropped her vial of "possibly gonorrheaic" urine onto the floor. It shattered into a billion pieces and left a puddle.
Everyone ran away
All 11 students in the lab (I'm #12) freaked out and wouldn't go near it. So I took it upon myself to put on some gloves and clean it up.
I guess I've got the advantage of not being squeamish about stuff, but I was really surprised at how afraid all the other students were of... urine
I'm venting a little because I thought that fellow nursing students were built a little tougher, but I guess everyone else has their breaking points. We'll see how we all do on fungating tumors/necrotizing wounds, eh?
Sorry. Been a long week.
