OK I had a 2.4. I'm white, no kids, not in any need of financial assistance. I'm not catty ("Oh did you see the shoes she was wearing!!). My dad is not a doctor, my mother will probabbly never be "mother of the year", I don't "give it up" if a guy notices me. I take responsibility for my own grades: if I flunk an exam, it was all my doing. Not the teacher's fault, not the Chatty Cathy's that sit behind me in class. If I'm assigned a "difficult" patient, I don't place blame on my instructor, accusing him/her not "liking" me. No, I don't friend people on Facebook so I can keep track of all the parties and shopping excursions they go on. I won't give anyone my cell phone number just to have them text me at 4a.m. to ask what I'm doing. Hey, if I do poorly in a class, it's MY fault. Not the "undiagnosed ADHD please feel sorry or me" excuse. No the "OMG I'm having so many problems" excuse. It's called life, and everyone needs to start taking responsibility for their own actions.
That's part of the reason that if you have a group of female nurses, it turns into a gossip-fest, with catty, backstabbing behavior. If something goes wrong, TAKE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILTY. It's not the patient's fault, not their annoying family, not the CNA's. Yours.
