    Girl in my cohort is cheating

    Cheating is wrong, but what you described does not sound like cheating to me at all. It's just as wrong to accuse someone of cheating who isn't as it is to not report cheating. You said she copied down a "mock dosage calculations test." Mock dosage calculation tests are frequently handed out by professors to students in my university, and they are not the actual test. They are practice. A professor will NEVER show you the actual test, or even previous tests, before it is administered. They are just practice, and perfectly fine to study from or "copy." If you tell an upper or spread rumors, it will seem as if you are grasping at straws.

    Starting a home care agency? Still a nursing student.

    Hello all, I just wanted to give an update that my website, Facebook page, and Twitter page are up and running now, and everything is going extremely well with my endeavor. I have made many new connections, am a member of the chamber of commerce in my area, and my company is part of the living wage campaign. My marketing campaign is going really well and I have a potential client within the first week of launching! It has been a great experience thus far, and I will keep this thread updated with my progress sometime in the future!

    Congratulations on your acceptance! I would not worry about people judging you if a problem arises and you're late to class. They just complain in their heads frequently and on internet forums. Best of luck to you!

    I chose to put that in quotations because you seemed to target that group in your comment. That's all. Don't overthink it, like you do with others' lives. If people choose to turn my opinion into an argument, that's okay with me. It's all in good fun.

    When did I say it was not unprofessional? Please read my comments thoroughly before commenting back. And you don't have to do personal attacks on my "attitude" in order to argue a point. It's sooooo second grade Of course it's unprofessional. I'm simply saying that judging a person immediately only harms yourself. And if you don't do it, good for you. My comment is then not targeted at you and this discussion is over.

    Why Do Nurses Eat Their Own?

    I find it hard to believe a worker can go to management, tattle-tale on everyone, and then management will think, "This is the only good worker on the entire floor, and I know this because they say that everyone else is bad. I better promote her/him for sure." What would exactly would they tattle about? How do you know that they even tattled? You do know what defamation (slander) is, and that it is illegal? Did a worker actually do something wrong when they tattled? "Experience" does not explain away these questions, and I, personally, do not buy into it.

    If somebody coming in late to class disrupts your life so much, then I pity you. However, you're a very admirable person for caring so much about your peers being disrupted, especially ones with "ADD." I hope you're saying that in sincerity, and not just to prove a point. Personally, it does not matter to me if somebody is late or not, because I don't really care about what others choose to do. I don't understand why people are so upset at this opinion, but they have every right to be on an internet forum. This is just my opinion, as well as just your opinion, and there is no solid evidence to back any claims on this thread at all. Again, it's just my opinion that your darting eyes and offense really won't change anything the next time you judge somebody negatively or get angry at that peer who came in late. It only hurts yourself.

    I repeat myself, for the third time, children are not an excuse. My entire point is that, for your own well-being, you should not judge so immediately. If I could take anything away from nursing, it's to not judge. Your darting eyes are not going to help anybody, and you're only stressing yourself out for no reason. Just like you are stressing yourself out over a silly thread.

    I think you're missing the point.. These things do not affect you, so it should not annoy you. It's not good for your mental health, in my opinion, to be so "worried" about others. If they get bad grades, it's not your problem.

    It is absolutely horrible what happened to you, and I've witnessed this behavior among my peer towards other students, with children specifically. I see this kind of "suck it up, buttercup" attitude on this forum, and many people believe they have the right to judge and complain about another student's actions in class, regardless of their situation at home. This is exactly why I do not judge anybody because you honestly never know what is going on with them underneath the surface. It is amazing that you went through all of that, kept your sanity, and still managed to graduate. You are an inspiration to us all, and I hope you get the respect you deserve in your career as a nurse :)

    This does not speak to my character.. I have never been late to class, appointments, meetings, or even just meeting up with friends. I also have one of the highest marks in my class. I think it speaks to your character when you're so quick to judge a nursing student with children for being late, and because you're so quick to judge ME because I believe that others should not be judged so quickly. I never said it was excusable, I just believe that nursing students without children are not in the position to judge a nursing student with children, because you CLEARLY don't know everything about everyone.

    I never said it should be dismissed by the professor, especially if it is against the rules. However, I feel that other nursing students, without kids, do not have a right to judge another nursing student for being late when they have children. And this is coming from a nursing student without children. I feel that other nursing students should worry more about themselves than the actions of their peers, whom they know nothing about.

    Why Do Nurses Eat Their Own?

    I completely agree with you, and I hope you understood my point. I think it should absolutely not be about age! However, many people in this thread are making it about age, and it's childish how you can blame an entire age group of nurses for shortcomings that you may have.

    Why Do Nurses Eat Their Own?

    There are so many new, disgusting comments on generalizing new nurses, that I can't even quote them all. I don't believe in NETY at all. However, all of these comments on this thread are actually supporting the theory of NETY. I repeat myself, NOBODY can bring you down to get into higher positions, unless they specifically threatened you, slept with a superior, illegally misrepresented you to your superiors, or killed you. This is childish behavior and I CANNOT believe that seasoned, responsible, older nurses, whom I respect very much, are saying these disgusting comments. There is so much hatred on this thread, and I sincerely hope you're not bringing this type of behavior into the workplace to your patients. Stop saying young nurses are "bringing you down," because nobody can do that but yourself.
