    I do not need you to tell me what was done wrong I am fully aware that I made a huge error during labs. My story does not get worse with new incidents this is the issue that I stated in the original post. How can you insinuate were I was or was not with fellow classmate, FYI some were at the same level as myself, it's just they were pass due to staff showing partiality and this occurs; day in and day out as well my friend. I stated as well that I knew who my patient was and this is a fact as well. You stated that Nurses kill people every day with medication errors just like this. If error should occur and they will, I believe it should happen in a safe environment would you not agree. Besides, it irritate me when other nursing students insinuate they never made or make mistake during clinical or labs this is not a fact, I've seen it too many times.

    This is what was stated to me due to the fact I fail to identify the patient on 3 occasion, and inaccurate BP. Any suggest as were to go from here, I know what I am doing wrong, its just I forget along with nervousness during lab. I really don't know why I made the same mistake on three occasion. What should I do to help correct this error.

    You are exactly right; labs/sims/clinicals should be the only place that you make mistakes in. However, it happen to me, I forgot to identify the patient before giving an injection on two occasions and inaccurately taking vital signs during two Sims labs. Let's just put it like this I made some mistake during the clinical labs and therefore I have been dismissed due to safety issues is what I was told. Believe it or not

    I really don't know what else to tell you, I was dismissed for exactly what I stated above. Failing to identify patient and not taking Vital signs accurately.

    Hey, I am so disappointed with myself; I was dismissed from Nursing school for not Identifying and taking accurate vital signs during Sims lab on 2 occasions. I did take vital signs accurately on several occasions with a nursing instructor. Yet this was not good enough I am assuming, I really do understand the consequences that could occur by not identifying a patient before giving and injection or meds. However, I knew who my patient was I had establish this during are first look assessment. We were told to ask the patient name and date of birth each time you enter the room. However, I forgot to ask on 2 occasion during are Sims lab. I believe, due to the fact that it was a fellow Nursing student that we were practicing with during are labs made me felt as if I did not have to ask them there name each and every time. Nevertheless, here I am out the door. To this day, I do not know why I was made to repeat task on my core competencies for simulation clinical that I was already check off on, I am so depressed.

    Hey, everyone I am at a lost,at this moment in time, You see I was dismissed for Nursing school due to failing to Identify patient during clinical training and failing to accurately take vital signs. However, I did practice several time after the first sims lab and took vital signs correctly. Yet, on the last sims lab my vital signs were incorrect from the instructor. I know how to take vital signs and to ID a patient before giving meds. I do not know why I failed to ask the other student their name and date of birth before giving the medication. I did introduce myself and ask the pretend patient their name on the first look assessment. So I know my patient. Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated, I am so disappointed with myself.
