Ok I need some advice here!
I am in an ADN program and right now I'm on my Peds rotation. I was really looking forward to Peds and Maternity for the change from Med/Surg, but now my fellow students have decided ot act like this is Jr. High again. We had to team up two students to one patient this week, and I got left out of all the team work. My "partner" asked for help from the other teams rather than me. Many conversations stopped dead when I walked into a room. So many snide comments were made about what and how I did on the floor. I could go on but you all get the point!
Most of this, I know, originates from one fellow student who has always been ticked off that I get 'A's in classes, am confident, strong-willed, and have a happy marriage and life, etc. She gets everyone else going and I get excluded.
I know just to rise above the pettiness, but I have been so well excluded that I got "spoken to" by the instructor--who seems a bit naive-- about not working as a team.
I went home yesterday and cried! I was so excited about Peds and now I'm looking at having to do battle every time I go to clinicals!
What should I do? HELP!!!!
