I'm in my last couple of months of nursing school. My instructor is one of those who can do no wrong (in her eyes). They often belittles students in front of patients/family/staff. (For example: she has yelled at me about wanting to tell the nurse that I was doing something for the patient.)
I normally don't care about these things. But something has been bothering me. They has been my clinical instructor for several clinicals. We sometimes get into small spats because she wants me to do something that is unsafe. (ie: pushing a medication too fast. or once she tried to give a pt 5x the amount of prescribed drug.)
I don't normally have problems with telling people how I feel. And to be honest, I am worried about the patients she treats. I am lucky that I always ALWAYS look up medications and protocols and have prevented something very catastrophic happening. But I fear that not everyone is as concerned about this... However, she is going to be in charge of my grades for the next several months. They have been known to..... Change them if the graded item is subjective..... But my patient advocacy side is kind of nagging at me. I'm scared of reporting her though, I'm even nervous posting here. Am I wrong in not wanting to report her?
