    I really feel for you as I am in a similar position now but my management has now written me up twice. Granted my mistakes and errors were made under my preceptors supervision. No one was harmed and it did not negatively impact the patient. But I nev...

  14. Biased Clinical Instructor

    I thank you all for the feedback, I will keep this in mind for my clinical on Friday. I feel like it is hard for me to do things such as read my patient's chart and do things via their EHR because we do not have long in abilities like I have at previ...
  15. Biased Clinical Instructor

    I probably should’ve clarified that I said this as a joke to one of my friends/peers in the conference room and it wasn’t referring to nursing at all. I have accommodations as a student so she was aware of those explicitly. But she told me I neede...
