Just wanted to drop by and welcome you aboard here at Allnurses!
Common stresses I had in nursing school mostly surfaced around my Med/Surg Nursing Professor.....she was the type of person who could make an alligator's skin crawl.
She was the only nursing professor I had that made me feel that way. It was during my second clinical rotation in the nursing program......which was what most students termed the "weeding out quarter" of the nursing program. :chuckle
I don't know why she rattled my nerves the most, but after I graduated from college, she was one nursing professor that I have yet to forget......and I graduated in March 1987!
Some nursing professors will have that affect on you, and others won't even be remembered years later as having such an impact in your life. That particular instructor never smiled
, and had a look that would make a patient want to be discharged in a hurry. :chuckle
My most embarrassing nursing story had to be the time I was learning to spike the IV bag.....only to pull the plug out of the bottom of the IV bag next to the patient's bedside, and the IV fluid spewed out of the bag everywhere.......yepper.....right next to that mean nursing professor I mentioned above. I laughed, the patient laughed.......my nursing professor wasn't laughing
. Just call her Nurse Stone Face...:stone
I wish you well in your nursing career, Ashley! Keep us posted on how you do. We really care around these parts. We may be slow in responding.....or a post may go unnoticed for a time.....but like now.....eventually someone always comes along and notices the ones that have been left out. Don't give up on us. We really really care about our future nurses who are today's students. :kiss
