I am very proud of you for having the professionalism and fortitude (both traits lacking in that insensitive manager as well as a few other basic human traits I would assume), to report such unacceptable behavior. Please, please, please, do not allow this incident and poor example of nursing to make you turn you back on what I believe will be a wonderful and rewarding career for you. You have already shown compassion, empathy, honesty, critical thinking, and the ability to advocate for you patient,,,, you are well on you way to success as a professional nurse. I am so sorry that this experience happened period, but also that it happened during clinical. I remember clinical as some of the most enjoyable times of my career because rarely will you ever have as much time to spend with your patient one on one, once you are a staff nurse with a full assignment. Good luck with the rest of nursing school and what I am sure will be a very successful nursing career. You will do our profession proud!
