Well, what i've learned is, they don't care anything about you or what your past experience was. They don't want you to ask questions or do anything that isn't their way. You are basically an idiot the minute you walk in the door, and if you want to survive, than you have to just not say anything and have enough inner confidence to know that you aren't an idiot or you wouldn't be there. Do I sound frustrated and bitter? I am a little. But I know that it seems to be that way no matter where you're at. I also know that I'm there to learn, and graduate. So, when someone tells me they don't like the way I taped an ET tube, even though Suzie CRNA or Joe Blow MDA told me to tape it that way, I just tape it the way they want, and not say anything else. I have less than a year left, and I know when I graduate that hopefully having the "pleasure" of working with fifteen different CRNAs and MDAs who all want it done their way, which is of course the best and only way, will allow me to assimilate the best of the info and integrate it the way I want to. And hopefully I will treat students better than I've been treated! Just have some inner confidence that you are there because you earned it, and don't let them take your inner peace away from you or your confidence in yourself!
