IMHO your instructor should have clarified the duties you and the other students were expected to have completed by 1400. In most facilities a 1400 med could be hung at 1330 to 1430. If you were expected to have all 1400 meds completed for report at 1350, then as students the instructor should have made this plain to you. The charge nurse had probably been informed by several staff nurses this was not being done by the students and took this opportunity to gently remind you and the instructor of this duty. I know this has happened several times and will again. Just remember to ask questions of the instructors if you are not sure what is expected. They can be so mean because they too have forgotten some of the rules of floor nursing.
I hope this helps some, I wish you success in nursing school and I hope you enjoy many years as a nurse.
