  3. Advice about addressing issues?
    As a student leader at my school the best piece of advice I can give you is this - it's not your job to fix it. Trust me, that department knows there is an issue and it's up to the administrator in...

  8. What can I do to raise my self confidence?
    I always tell the newbies that I mentor this, "You're going to make mistakes and that's okay. You need to take your job seriously and yourself lightly." In any job it takes an average of 18...

  9. Would you do nursing school all over again from start to get your degree?
    Yes and here's why - I am supposed to be a nurse. I'd go to a different program and a different school but if that's what it took that is what I would do. Nothing else I've done has satisfied me in...

  12. Out of my scope
    No if they were medical questions I wouldn't mind. They are personal and a little off kilter. Sorry for the vague response just trying not to be too exact for obvious reasons.

  15. Papers
    As I know several English professors I can tell you that if you do not have a good relationship with them they will direct you to other resources. I suggest seeing if your school has an English tutor...

    I feel for you. There is a person in my group that is so flustered even the facility clergy commented to me about it. I tried to give this person the benefit of trust and tried to allow them to do...

  17. I got removed from my clinical practice
    You absolutely cannot bad mouth a facility or staff. Any student who causes waves at a facility is a risk to the program period. If you feel like you weren't given enough to do then you make...

  19. Higher Learning is very hard to understand

  21. A lamb in a den of wolves!
    I had a very prickly primary once. I sent her a thank you card. She was the most organized and on task person I had ever seen. I don't want or need for them to hold my hand, or tell me their life...
