At our clinicals, being w/ the inexperienced nursing students doesn't affect me, because I'm placed with an RN and tell her what I'd like to do and learn, if possible. Since every student is different, we all got very different experiences from clinicals.
I think it's cute to see students get so excited over learning new things that I've done many times ...I also like to help them, if I can.....What's sad is that I'm a genuinely nice person and just like to help people, but there are some who think I'm a "know-it-all".....
I wanna tell them---"Honey, in nursing, NO ONE is a "know-it-all!"...we learn new things every freaking day (hour!), things change SO fast, there is always tons to learn!"
As far as the classroom....*sometimes* I get bored because I've already learned it or seen it in real life,----I hate it when they go over BASIC things that we all should've learned in Nutrition or Microbiology or Anat. & Phys!
HOWEVER; I have definitely learned A LOT more and am reading A LOT more than ever! I am realizing there are sooooooo many things I didn't know about as an LPN!
