    Yes, after looking at your last post I guess I see what you mean. You were referring to precepting, I thought you meant "orienting" in the sense of being considerate of people. Sorry I took the last post out of context.

    Hmm, are you the same RNdynamic that made this comment: " It's always fairly ignorant, undereducated former waitresses former CNAs, former babysitters, with a kid out of wedlock, who go to "get their RN" at CCs and never have any interest in furthering their education again, who act like bullies we encounter. They lived a life of being low class and getting pushed around. They become nurses and then think it's their turn."? If so that was not very "orienting to others" either.

    Well, I did not think you were ever going to respond. Soo, with regard to your point about the question, I thought that is what you meant, to look something up and try, and I say that with empahsis, try to interpret. Ask the question to see if you are on the right or wrong track. That is all good, but... What happens when a person goes to a resource that goes way over their head. I have done that so I speak from experience. Some things can be looked up, but the references can cause even more confusion. Does that warrant a question?? I mean the person put the effort in but for whatever reason still did not get it.

    I do not think there is a formula for predicting a bully. The only common factor I see is that is a miserable person, whether fed with a silver spoon or clawing their way out of the gutter. Personally I admire a person who tries to better themselves, and I have seen those who have done that be very integral, professional people. Just my say.

    I do not believe anyone is saying that bullying does not exist, nor are they saying that the victim is a coward. What is being said is that any action, even just walking away or keeping on despite the adversity is overcoming the bully. Authority figures are difficult to stand up to, yet if you do not let them discourage you from your ultimate goal isn't that winning a battle??

    This is a beautiful story. Makes you realize that there is always some good in bad situations, angels are amongst us. I am glad that you did some reflection, speaks to your heart being in the right place. That young man will probably do some reflecting of his own, hopefully. Keep up the good work, your are a blessing and a super hero in your own right. Peace.

    Protecting a child is different, they need to learn how to respond. Adults on the other hand should have some type of idea of how they want to respond. Just my opinion.

    Stating that you have control over your feelings is in no way dictating how you should feel. Just emphasizing that you have control. As someone else stated, no one is speaking on your experience personally. This is just an attempt to relay the fact that WHATEVER you feel is in your control, ie up to you.. Peace

    The poster is not discarding your feelings, no one can do that. I think what is trying to be conveyed is you have the power over your response to the feelings.

    The OP said: "I have been seeing these threads talking about bullying and teachers or preceptors hating the students, and new nurses or abusing them because of some perceived slight or injustice." I am confused, no where in the original post did the OP say "all students". So what gives???

    My, can't we agree to disagree without being anatagonistic?? I am not a nurse, nursing student or potential nursing student. There was a time when I aspired to be one, yet I found that I did not have the where withal to fulfill that dream, such is life. How did I realize that? I did 1 year of a clinical practicum in radiation oncology. Although I excelled academically, I had two left hands in clinical... My instructor told me that some people are smart academically but are not able to adapt to clinical. So, in the best interest of the patient I resigned my seat and pursued other avenues. Were there times I wanted to believe there was a conspiracy, yes. Did I feed that gremlin, NO. I do not by any means discard bullying, abuse, racism and the rest of the isms. I also do not discard the fact that sometimes we need to do some soul searching and really evaluate ourselves, yes based on the observations of others. That is what I had to do, so I speak from experience. So, some of the OP's post I agree with, some of it I do not. Yet I realize that is their opionion and they are entitled just as I am. As fiesty as some of these posters are you could run a training class on how to not be bullied. No offense to anyone, just my say...
  15. Thank you so much for sharing this, it was inspirational, motivational and just a good read.
