  1. Hi guys so i wanted to share with you guys this that i haven't even been able to share with my friends or family because im embarrassed to do so and i feel like maybe you guys as future nurses or nurses can hear me vent and maybe share your stories if something similar happened to you . forgive me if my writing is not perfect ( English is my second language ) It happened a Saturday morning at 7:30 am after the teacher assign each of us to the nurses on the floor . The morning routine is to check vitals and give medications . I usually get assigned to a charge nurse or a older one because so this was the second time i worked with this male nurse ( married man in his 40 ,s ). We went to the room of an elderly patient ( 80 ) she was not mentally there and needed her medications , He started asking me if i was single , about family and stuff and told me about his family , the first thing he did was to touch my hair and say wow you have beautiful hair while i was trying to draw some medication from a syringe ( i felt uncomfortable but i was concentrated on what i was doing ) and just says thanks . After that we went to another patients rooms and he said oh i forgot to hang fluids for the lady we just saw ...after a while we went back to the room and told me to hang the bag ( he touched my hand and said you have smooth hands do you have them ? do you shave everything in you body ... but i didn't answer because i noticed that we were completely alone in the room and though to myself i can believe this is happening to me . One of the CNA walked in THANK GOD and he stopped and we went outside he started asking me medication questions until i got one wrong and he said when you get one wrong you owe me something ...at this point i excused myself to the bathroom in panic and called the teacher and the students . My teacher acted right away while my classmates for some reason found the situation funny .. a report was made and the Male nurse got fired . sorry for the long story but i just wanted to let all the girls here to speak up because i believe im not the only one .

    what i did and the reason for my good grades while working full time is being organized and not leaving things for last minute ,never underestimate nursing school even if you have a day off , STUDY , trust me you will always have something due the following week so just get yourself a nice calendar and plan your days :) before going INTO school enjoy time with your baby and family and try to take plenty of naps lol

    I need to vent about my Nursing program

    So i got accepted into a Nursing program a few months ago and i was super excited about it at the beginning but now im concerned about it because it is going wayyyy tooooo fast . so we are basically studying none stop to pass all these exams and quizzes without having a chance to think about what we just did , My grades are good..... VERY good : Health Assessment 98 % Pharmacology 1 96 % Dosage Calculations 99 % Fundamentals 97 % and i know with these grades you guys will probably say ( what is this stupid girl complaining about ) but i swear that i dont think im learning anything !! i study to pass these exams and i feel like ill be " that nurse " that doesnt know **** . Tell me this feeling is normal or not , i am worried about it , we have exams every single week , plus care plans plus before class assignments and did i mention that i work full time ? lol Maybe im just freaking out but i need someone to talk to because my friends dont understand and they think im exaggerating because im still passing these classes so i should just be ok with that ....

    Reading was LONG !! so they give you this HUGE paragraphs and divide it by numbers ( 1.2.3.4.5. ) from there they will ask you about the main idea of paragraph 1 , for example , or give you A, B, C , D answers of what best describes what the author is trying to say in paragraph 3 , A , B , C , D answers of where in the paragraph you would place the following sentence , Find the sentence that is repeated or unnecessary . Things like that
