Did you ever notice in nursing school when you were so focused on trying to properly draw up an I.M. from the bottle, and your teacher would be standing there asking you about possible side effects of the drug??? That is what is referred to as 'educational noise.' That is not the time to ask the question [theoretically, before the student was in the process of preparing the dose, that's when the teacher should have asked].
Yes, students should go back and read to enhance what advice we give. But, there are times when a student NEEDS the answer NOW. I am honored that nursing's future feel that they could come and ask us. I encourage anyone at any time to post, and if I know the answer, I will tell you---if I don't, I will look it up [because it may be good for me to know, too].

I would bend over backwords to help anyone who has a problem. I am so glad that their is a place such as this for nursing students to go for help. Wish it existed when I was a student. All I said was I wanted people to try to do their work,never said I wouldn't help a fellow nurse, be it a student or practicing nurse. Please anyone who I upset go back and read what I originally wrote and see if you really think I was being unkind. Never ate our young...usually I was the one being eaten.

If you really were trying to be kind the I am truly sorry. I do hope though that you realize that you were in fact lumping all students together. The few rotten apples shouldn't spoil the vinyard (well, it made sense in my head!). I am glad to hear you are not one of the young-eaters
Mar 23, '01Occupation: rn-or Joined: Mar '01; Posts: 52; Likes: 2I am sure glad to hear that. You must realize though, we all took your posting the same way, so....... We young nurses need the support of the seasoned ones. You have alot to offer. Please be kind!!Originally posted by realnursealso/LPN:

Mar 24, '01Occupation: fulltime student Joined: Mar '01; Posts: 2,025; Likes: 1I am going into the ADN program and will be coming here to ask questions I am sure, but I do have a point to make....my personal opinion and if this offends others in school I am sorry...why would you go to a message board where you don't know anyone personally and ask for an answer to one of the questions that you could find the answer for yourself with much more satisfaction? And not to offend the nurses, but students what if you got the wrong answer? These are things I would be concerned with....It is always better to do these things yourself and you will learn it better, not to mention the resources you may be able to use later in your studies that you may find while looking for that "one" answer....Just my 2 cents
Mar 25, '01Occupation: OR, RN Joined: Jun '00; Posts: 49I am a nursing student and graduate in May. I come to the BB often for help! I don't expect bb to do my assignment but I come on here for opinions, advice, and help. Just because you didn't have internet when you were in nursing school therefor everyone else shouldn't use it to help them get through it? Maybe my learning style isn't like yours. After all that's what makes each and everyone of us different and that's what makes the world go round. I don't see many post asking for them to do their homework, the post are asking for help. You obviously don't remember what nursing school was like
