I am in my first semester of nursing school, and I am doing my clinical rotation at a smaller community hospital. The evening before clinicals, we all go to the hospital to pick up our patient assignments.
Tonight, there were 3 of us sitting behind one of the tables with a computer ( mind you there are approx 15 computers) doing our patient reports/careplans and gathering info from pt. charts. This nurse walks up and slams her folder onto the desk on top of our papers (scared the daylights out of us) and says in a really snide voice, " this is the computer I like to use, and that is the seat I like to sit in, so I will be sitting in it now. You girls will just have to find someplace else to go". WTH? am I overreacting? I don't know why this is bothering me so much, but I have been thinking about it all night long! Should I just let it go ( which is my first thought ) or should I tell my clinical advisor about it? If she would have rephrased it differently, I would have had no problem, but her tone was just SO nasty! Sometimes I don't think they remember the days of being students themselves. I just wish I could figure out why it infuriates me so much.
