You are not saying anything I did not hear at my orientation back in 1988 or the one I had in 2006. It is too bad that they have to cram negativity down one's throat, but take it for what it is. If you are willing to succeed and can maintain positivity, you will get through.
I remember my first orientation way back when, the instructor came around the corner with a bull whip and said "Okay girls lets go, otherwise there is the door, you can turn around now." I was 18 years old and scared out of my mind. She knew it too, and was very negative and made a point to embarass me and others. But, in the long run, I showed her I was there to stay, that I did, with all my heart want to be a nurse. I learned more from this woman than any instructor I ever had then or recently. I saw her a couple years ago, she is long since retired. I told her I went back to get my RN, she gave me a hug and said "I knew you could do it, you girls that went through your LPN with me went through tough times, but you have the ability to overcome and succeed."
I know that was prolly way off subject, but your posts are taking me down memory lane just a bit.
