Anatomatrix...I just have to tell you about one of my favorite instructors, she has a very dry sense of humor that some people just don't get, but she was funny!

but the things that the, (don't chastise me for this) 'good students' liked about her is that she allowed no noise. She would very respectfully call you out for anything distracting, including making a student take off her bracelet because it was tapping on the desk as she took notes. Whispering was unheard of in her class b/c it would only take a second for her to tell you to get out. Nothing she did was hateful, she told you up front in the first class, she was just very 'matter-of-fact' about it, you do what I say, or leave. We just really liked that she took care of those wanting to learn. I think that is what earns an instructor respect, accepting nothing less than what is expected of adults in an adult setting.

ok...sorry I got off track. :p

as an ex PARAMEDIC(Associate degree with OVER 200 hours more than an ADN RN..)and as a nursing student(returning after 20 yrs) I feel I am able to reply......most Nursing homes I have been to regard us (EMT'Ps) as below CRNA's even thouth I have had MORE TRAINING THAN THEY HAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!........I am DISGUSTED with the treatmement that ENT/EMTP rcv from maily LVN/LPN(whom are REALLY INFERIOR to us training wise)........this is coming from a LPN STUDENT/ASD(assocaite in Paramedicine)

Pretty sure you mean CNA....unless that was one hell of a medic program to outpace Anesthesia school :)

If this is who I am thinking of, I loved her also! Most people thought she was a big B, but I found her entertaining. And I loved that she wouldn't hesitate to tell someone to hit the bricks if they were being a distraction to the class.

Yesterday, for the first time in this program, I raised my hand and asked a question. The responces I received WHILE the professor was answering my question included "SHUT UP," "Was that really a question," "Eccchah," and "You really don't get this?"

I want to tell them all to shut up, but at the same time, I was the girl that was told to shut up.

fred & Wannabemw - stay the course.

if that happened in my program, they would have been thrown out of that lecture and possibly the course. Our director of nursing does NOT put up with any BS, especially immature bs like you described. I feel for you. Stay strong!

Yes there is one in EVERY class. The person that comes in mind in my class not only asked a million questions she would actually look back and want to copy your notes! She sat in front of me, so the next lecture I sat somewhere else and she followed!I think she did this because most of the time she did not even know what was going on.

Oh there is always one in every class. I had a girl who was in every single one of my classes throughout nursing school that drove everyone crazy. She would raise her hand and tell us stories about friends and family and then ask the instructor if the topic of the day was what this person had. It got to the point that you could hear a groan come over the class when ever she would raise her hand. The instructor actually started asking her if she was going to say something related to the topic and ask if t was a question even. At first this tactic worked to quiet her but then she would just say yes so that she could go into her story. Other students started to throw stuff at her and the person next to her tried kicking her every now and then but it was no use. The instructor just started to ignore her and I swear that many a day I held back laughter as I watched her flap her arm until it about broke off and then switch sides. We all laugh about her "isms" (which is what we started to call them - "her name" isms). Even she has looked back and chuckled. I guess it is one of the things you look back on and can laugh about from nursing school and it is a rite of passage almost. No one in my class was really distracted by it to the point that it affected our grades and passing the NCLEX.

Since I took it out of the classroom, I'll put it back there.

There's a girl who always (without fail) sits next to me in my nursing and bio classes and during the lecture, the instructor will tell us something and as I'm trying to write it down she says, "What'd he say?" Sometimes she looks over my shoulder to read what I write as I write it and that just drives me up the wall. I don't have the heart to say, "Record it!" or "Wait until I'm finished writing if you want read it!" I feel bad for her because I know she tries and I see her studying all the time in the lounge or the library but I know her grades aren't that great. She's made it this far, but I have a sneaking suspicion (and I'm dead serious on this one) that she's fooling around with two of the instructors. I've knocked on my instructors' doors and they've opened it and she's sleeping in their offices, or playing on their computers. I'm not sure how to feel. She's a single mom and working hard, but she's so...how do I say this nicely?...well--not exactly...smart. She has to have an edge, somehow. We're half way through and she passed when nearly half the class has failed to this point. Maybe she really does work hard and earns her score. I don't know.

OMG LOL!!!!

I graduated in May '07, but I so remember "The Annoying Ones." There were a few people in my class who got on everyones nerves due to the frequency that they either asked questions or volunteered info about their relatives who were sick. Drove the rest of us NUTS! THere was one gal who had a grandmother who (I swear!) had every disease we ever covered in school, yet she was still living. This persons granny either had the absolute best MD's keeping her alive, or was a mutant. I dreaded going to class because of her. My friends and I would predict how the lectures would go based on her comments, and after a while it was like "Mystery Science Theater"...remember that show? Where she would make a comment or tell a story, and we would commentate (we laughed so hard we nearly wet our pants on some days). Even the teachers got irritated after a while and stopped calling on her, or would start the lecture by saying that they would take questions/comments after class. I also really loved when a student who supposedly had experience would pipe up and try to tell the teacher they were wrong, or question something...made for great fun seeing the struggle the teachers were in (you know they wanted to just start yelling at the student). After a while these students got the hint that noone wanted to hear about their sick granny, or how much more experience they had compared to the rest of us.

I will say that seeing those students in action made me realize that while it's good to be smart and know your stuff, it's NOT good to get a rep as a know-it-all (both in school and work). It has carried me through alot of tough situations in my work experience.

They are irritating, but it taught me how I should interact with my patients, their families, my coworkers, and the doctors I work with.

Hey..... its better than those that nod off and snore with everyone worrying that they are obstructing their airway. We had a student a couple of weeks ago who was yawning so much she dislocated her jaw. And then there are the ones that nod off and their heads bounce around. Some even get that dribble slowly finding its own little way down the chin. At least the "its all about me" ones keep you awake ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!
