  2. Nursing student lacking passion?
    I think work ethic is under-rated in nursing compared to a passion for nursing. If you're committed to doing a good job--and everything that phrase entails, from critical-thinking to advocacy to...

  5. Denial Back Into program
    Sometimes, as hard as you work, one's grades are just not up to snuff for certain pursuits. Most schools have two strike policies in which you can fail one class and retake it, but if you fail a...

  6. What is bullying then?
    It seems like the word is verboten 'round these parts. Yeah, getting your feelings butt-hurt or your feathers ruffled isn't bullying. Sometimes, when things are described on this board, it's just...

  7. The real reason your failing in school
    I hate parsing out another's post, but you said that even with bad teachers, the material to study still exists. That particular line in your original post was what I based my response on. Just...

  8. Opportunities to volunteer abroad for students?
    Usually, volunteer opportunities organized by schools come under the term "service learning." My school did it on a local, national, and international level. I took part in the local level during my...

  9. Accelerated Program Jitters
    Accelerated programs can be killers with no breaks to speak of and concentrated classes during summers. I went to one. I remember at the end of the third out of four semesters, just standing in...

  10. The real reason your failing in school
    Interesting concept, but I don't agree completely. If this was 100% true, why have teachers at all for adult learners? All we would need would be a textbook and the Internet. We could all seek out...

    Are you dense? You just don't get how mean-spirited toward your female co-workers you really are. *whine* I just wanted to *whine* you know, share the bromance *whine* without having the...

  12. What do you do about lazy nurses?
    What this nurse and the DON don't seem to care about is that she is responsible for proper delegation. If something happens, and a family member reports it, it will be her butt before the BON, not...

  14. Do you chart lies?
    I posted elsewhere that a CNA had the perfect timing for turns that she didn't do, but I was told I was wrong for charting in real time the turns that I did do, which had times similar to your real...

  16. Why is Med-Surg so hated?
    I am a floor nurse at heart. I've dabbled with the idea of moving to a different specialty, but it just never seems right. I will be a floor nurse in acute care for my entire career, if they'll...

  17. You will not learn anything in the conference room!
    Did you go to the same school? ;) That's the way we did it, too. I had one instructor who did not tolerate paperwork during clinical and who would just give the evil eye if we were found...

  19. All Men Shift
    I think it's because men find it impossible to remain professional when dealing with a 20-something vagina. All the male nurses are only good for lift help anyway. Makes me wonder why they didn't...

    Based on my last post, I realized that my acrimony may be a bit misplaced. Instructors set the tone for their clinical groups, and they need to be aware that they have to model the kind of behavior...

    What strikes me about Esme is her thoughtfulness and humility, not to mention her knowledge. I have a picture of her in my head: a kind face with a warm, sincere smile. The type of face you would...

  24. You will not learn anything in the conference room!
    The instructor was in the conference room with the students. When I opened the door, everyone had their heads in care plans...it didn't look like any type of de-brief or review was going on. I don't...
