    Unprofessional Clinical Educator.. What would you do?

    To answer your questions, the BLS situation occurred in the fall last year just a few months out from my graduation from nursing school. I think I was fresh out of orientation. TJC was not coming through, I didn’t receive any emails prior to being approached frantically while in the middle of being with an A&Ox4 patient as she honestly kind of grilled me loud and clear... and I do care obviously, I’m just a new nurse trying to figure it all out. I didn’t know the proper channels or that it had to be submitted somewhere through proper channels, at a certain time. I thought it was like your nursing license where you just have to ensure you’re always current and no one’s chasing down your paperwork... Kind of odd you have to submit your BLS proof every time but not your renewed licensure now that I think about it? I understand now that attending a class you registered for is important whether mandatory or optional, for the reasons you stated (which, thank you for the insight) and reasons stated by others in the forum. I think someone even mentioned their hospital policy will penalize you for it. Again I had no idea, I’m just trying to navigate not only patient care in the ICU in my first year but hospital policy, the inner workings and everything else not patient care related that you don’t even consider or have any clue about until you’re in the hospital environment for awhile. We have no such policy and no one ever told me either of these things.. and I understand she has to do her job. I just really didn’t appreciate her approach or tone either time. I certainly don’t mean to be disrespectful or waste anyone’s time.

    Do you try to figure out what makes a reporter tick when they describe a suspect or a victim by their age too?.... again I just meant it as a descriptor but apologies if anyone read it as ageism.

    I just mentioned her age so as to describe her. She’s a seasoned nurse who has been an educator and a nurse for a long time.

    Thanks all. I suppose there are worse offenses and maybe I’m being overly sensitive but her tone and approach just rubs me the wrong way. I agree it influences the patient’s perspective of their care.
  6. I’ve been a RN for a year in the ICU. Our clinical educator is a woman in her 60’s who generally seems to be well liked and gets along with everyone, although being the clinical educator she can be seen as annoying sometimes - I suppose that comes with the job. But she doesn’t seem to like me. There have been two occasions where she has inappropriately approached me about an unrelated topic while I’m doing my morning assessment on a patient. The first time she was in a panic asking me if my BLS had expired because she didn’t have it on file, in a patient’s doorway. Today she came up behind me while I was suctioning a vented patient and asked me, “What the hell happened to you yesterday?” in regards to me not showing up to an optional class I had forgotten about. She was almost sort of grilling me and told me myself and another person hadn’t shown and she was livid. I think this is inappropriate and I’m almost tempted to speak up because this is the second time she’s done something similar, but curious to know everyone’s thoughts. Thank you!
