I don't know if you have this problem or not, but a lot of times in our clinical settings.... the staff are just horrible to us. They hide thermometers so we can't do our vitals, and after we make our beds, they go behind us and untuck our sheets to get us in trouble.
Did any of the other nurses pick up on this???
I've heard all kinds of horror stories, but this is the first time I've heard anything along these lines. *sigh* I doubt very much if anybody is hiding things from you to make you look bad. Things just up and disappar in a clinical setting. Get used to it. :kiss
Believe me, nobody working in a clinical setting now-a-days has TIME to hide thermometers to mess up the students on clinicals, even if they're evil enough to want to.
When I was a student, I can remember a couple of times when I was a tech, and a few nurses would come galloping up to tell me to do something else entirely. Kind of like somebody on a ship yelling "SAVE yourself!" :chuckle
Try giving the nurses telling you this the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they feel they're giving you valid advice. They should KNOW that you won't take their advice AND that you resent it. I'll betcha a quarter that nurses said and did the same thing when they were students. And they resented it.
Nurses are all stubborn, hard-headed and we overcome a lot every day of our lives. Okay, weazeling out - MOST nurses are. We'll be standing up, taking care of people in hospital who sometimes are less sick than we are. We're just more motivated.....
And Heather - I think you're right about the cool uniforms. But I think specifically it's the WHITE SUPPORT HOSE!!!
