    i've worked with too many people who shouldn't be nurses in my career. nursing is all about character and ethics. your client doesn't want to do x, y, or z : do you just ask, and chart it refused, or do you really try to get your client to do what is best. in a thousand ways every day, you must push yourself to do the right thing, even though you are tired, short staffed, etc. while we can only do the best we can at the time, it takes work to do the right things even most of the time. though education and grades don't predict good nurses. knowledge is absolutely critical. being this lazy is a bad, bad, sign.

    Quote from firstyearstudent

    You sound more like a nihilist than a Christian.

    Actually TROLL would be a better term.

    And BSN ?? (in profile).
    Yeah and I'm J'Lo.
    I can't believe I read the whole thing:smackingf
    I just couldn't stop. Sort of like rubbernecking at an accident, ya know?
    You really shouldn't, but.......

    I don't think I've ever seen such an advanced case of moral relativism.
    I've never tried jumping out of an airplane with no chute, but I think I can safely advice another not to, ya keen?

    Where did you ever get the idea one would have to be absolutely blameless to uphold the law?
    (And don't tell me the Bible, because it dosen't say anything like that, IN CONTEXT)
    That's the silliest thing I think I've ever heard.

    BTW, Good job in turning in the cheater's.
    Honest peolpe work too hard to put up with that crap.

    I'm currently faced with this same issue, and have thought a good deal about whether to give the professor a "heads up." If the professor applies a curve to the grading scale, then the behavior of these other students certainly stands to impact the grades of all the students in the class. I don't think any clear-thinking person can blame honest students for speaking up. However, if these people feel they have to cheat to pass the tests, the lack of foundational knowledge necessitates more cheating, just to keep up. Things have a way of catching up; eventually, they will be discovered for the frauds they are.
