Ok, heres the thing. As a nursing student you are considered a mature student. What I mean by this really is, that, if a school does not have a policy re: classes missed, then so what. I agree it is anoying if she/he is asking YOU for your notes as you came to classes. If however, they do not bother you , then who the bleep cares. As long as they are not failing (and if they are not making it, they would be out) then thats thier perogative, THey are PAYING to be there as an adult. I have a guy in my class and a girl as well, who dont come all the time...But they are smart and competent and SAFE. Anyhow, I am in 4th year and I just feel by now, I really dont give a darn Scarlet (heehee). Dont sweat the small stuff honey!
Enjoy Nursing school!
