Wow....I can see that a lot of nursing instructors answered here and I guess I should not be surprised that they are of
the opinion that it really isn't them its the student.
well ...I had a nursing clinical instructor who was going to be removed from teaching clinicals due to
many, many, complaints about her.
So when there were two weeks left of clinical (for the semester) she told me she had seen me
do something unsafe a month earlier, and had the write up in her office waiting for me.
She was very pit bull like, and she was not interested in my side of things whatsoever.
I withdrew from class.
So to all you clinical instructors who took the time to answer this post, why don't you do me a favor and answer the following
question....How does waiting a MONTH to issue me a safety write up, benefit my learning? Is it better for me to be in the dark
for a month about my mistake and perhaps continue making the SAME mistake, than to issue me the warning the same day it
I imagine it is.
