    Nurses Eating Their Young- A Different Perspective

    Call it what you want, but majority here rules that it's a power trip/ego trip, etc. Let's hope I never have a preceptor like you. There's being firm, and then there's being a jerk. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's a duck. Don't justify your mistreatment as anything else but hazing. Have a nice day.

    Nurses Eating Their Young- A Different Perspective

    Who said anything about "babying" anyone? It's a term of endearment. Hearing a clinical instructor say : " I'm so proud, my babies passed Cardio. " Sounds a hell of a whole lot better than just silence. She isn't treating them/us like babies, but it's better than having domineering, rude instructors.

    Babies is a term used similarly as gamers use the word "newbie" or "noob". My instructor uses it, but it's a term of endearment.

    You actually can, depending on the type. Some don't have hooks, but the ones I deal with do. Otherwise how could they hang off the beds?

    What that poster said about veterans was offensive and I agree with you. My grandfather is a veteran and a psychologist with 2 doctorates and 3 masters degrees. Crazy? I think the word you're looking for is "Hardcore".

    Sure to Get Flamed for This

    That's been me a couple times. Being an lpn, they assume we know it all. As an RN student that's frustrating, especially since I went from lpn school straight into the RN bridge. I've remained silent with certain instructors due to previous experience of annoyance from my questions. Granted, I'm not asking for a handout, but if you never taught us how the buretrol is used, don't get snippy when we ask you. Just my 0.02. :)
