I recently had my teacher mock me in front of the whole class like a bully in a park, "literally" making funny faces and noises like you are watching a movie about bullying. I will report this the the School president and file a complaint about this teacher.....am I being pitiful or is this really unprofessional behavior that should not be accepted? I torn if I should just accept it or stand up. Well, actually I will complaint regardless, but I do wonder. Humm? Please give your opinion.

I had a teacher who just constantly favored others and would be so much harder on me. One day I told another teacher (my lecture teacher as the teacher I did not like was a clinical instructor) she told my clinical instructor about my concern but didn't tell her it was me. She freaked out and asked our whole group who it was! This teacher also mocked a girl in my clinical WHILE doing a foley, she put it in the vagina and bc of all the lube it made a u-turn and came out. She laughed in front of a patient!! Moral of the story is.. Do it but do it professionally and anonymously bc word gets around and people won't like a whiner in class! Good luck!

Pick your battles carefully and tread with caution. I have known of more than one vindictive instructor who failed students who had reported them.

If you report without your ducks in a row, prepare for some retaliatory action.

I withdrew from the program already and informed the Dean of RN school. Yikes? I knew that it was a game of how much crap I could take, is that part of being an RN? Wow? Advice.

Oh no...why did you withdraw? You should have staked it out. You just let her win. -_-

It just felt like....like...like when I sued my ex-employer for harassment. I mean I just knew something was completely out of line and wrong but while I was in her class she could do anything to my grade. (I got a settlement by the way, the fight was nasty but I prevailed cause I knew it was wrong.)

Honestly I think you may have acted in haste; if you had an issue with this instructor your responsibility was to speak with them on a 1:1 about the issue at hand if that did not resolve the issue you are to go to the lead instructor of the course, if that still doesn't fix the issue then and only then should you have gone to the Dean.

Withdrawing from school because of something like this may have been in haste, if I was in your shoes I would have kept myself low on the radar and just focuses on getting through. Are there unprofessional and vindictive instructors in nursing school (any major really) yes but that doesn't mean you should just give up.

OK, ok, :( I'm so confused now, I didn't think RN school would be so dysfunctional.

Nursing school can be incredibly dysfunctional but sometimes you just need to deal with it to get through, if you are serious about finishing nursing school try seeing you can rescind your withdrawal and go back to class and try to get some guidance on what to do with your situation. Best of luck!

I can go back but I have to wait up 6mo-1yr, I'm getting guidance with my issues in the meantime with therapy, which I really think I will need if I need to continue. I'll deal with one day at a time, but it is just not over yet, I think I've hit a bout of major depression. :( Thanks for your feed back.

You're not cut out for nursing. It's probably best you withdrew.

(Am I being hard? Yes. Nursing is hard.)
