The day will come when this classmate, who will be a new nurse, gets cocky with the wrong veteran nurse, a doc or even the wrong type of patient & the school of hard knocks will give him a very hard lesson in humility. 

Also, forget that guy. Don't concern yourself with someone so wholly irrelevant & useless to you. Last you reported, I believe both you & him graduated the same program.

Many years ago, I went to school with a couple of people who thought they were the greatest thing to ever happen to nursing. Who knows where they are now.

It's one thing to be positive, and another thing to be overconfident.

Always remember, there are many different types of nursing, and we've all been made a little differently for a reason.

I'm just about to start nursing school, so I can't really offer any job advice. However!! I would absolutely advocate for not talking to this jerk anymore. If you've graduated and don't need to see him for study group or whatever, delete his number/unfriend on Facebook, etc. He doesn't have any reason to be checking up on your grades or job prospects and his flaunting is not something you should be subjected to. Good luck and congrats on your graduation!

Don't worry, OP. People like your arrogant classmate will be eaten alive on the floor real quickly, either by a superior nurse or a doctor. And he will get it severely.

I forgot to mention his experience, he’s worked a psych tech in the ED and claims to have “basically done everything the nurses do minus IV meds” that’s the only “difference” and he’s basically ready to work as an RN

It doesn't matter what his experience is because it's not about HIM; it's about YOU letting him though your a-hole boundary.  Just feel sorry for him because he's such an insecure hot mess and respect your personal space.  There shouldn't be room in there for anyone to squeeze into your self esteem like that...he's the jerk, not you.  But comeuppance will come soon Grasshopper.

I love you a million times for saying this!
