This is my first posting of a new thread. There have been some very interesting threads regarding ghost stories, best trauma, etc. I'm a Diploma grad from the 60's and MSN grad from 2004. I'd like to hear from you all about your most memorable nursing instructor/s from nursing school. I guess my most interesting instructor was Miss Arthur. She had been in the military in her younger days, also did Public Health before becoming an instructor. Back in the day, it was most unusual for instructors in hospital based programs to have advanced degrees, but she did. Anyway, she had sustained a terrible injury to her arm, that resulted in an amputation, This lady was the most phenomenal instructor. Her neuro exams were BRUTAL
!!! But I learned more from her than any of my other instructors. I'll never forget the day she came thru my OR suite for a mastectomy, and I held her hand as she went to sleep "I know you'll take good care of me."
Let's here from some of you.

I had 2 great instuctors in my career!
The first was my NA instuctor when I was in HS. Mrs. JS. God Bless her where ever she is. I was sent to Voc Tech because I was not college material... Well she did not beleive this & she did not let me beleive it either.
Then when I was in my BSN program (eat *hi* & choke HS counselor) Ms. M the most real & teacher in the bunch. God bless her too!!!
Love this thread thanks for starting it!
