Rant ...

Posted

Specializes in NICU, Trauma, Oncology. Has 7 years experience.

So I just sat through a 3 day HESI review and at the end the lady who was teaching the course was coming up to students individually and telling us to use the PVT after we take nckex to see if we passed or not. When I told her that was a terrible idea and that the "glitch" had been fixed she told me I was wrong. I just can't believe the audacity for a "professional" to suggest that.

End rant.

OK. Someone was misinformed regarding an extremely minor issue. Not sure how that impacts their professionalism but OK.

what Asystole said. it's not like she suggested that students cheat, she told them of a trick she heard about that used to work pretty well to tell test takers whether they passed. Maybe it worked maybe it didn't but it's not like it makes her less of a professional nurse to tell them about the stupid trick! you told her she was wrong, she told you that you were wrong. One of you is wrong lol I'd forget about it.

If you actually used the phrase "terrible idea", then I assume the review wasn't graded. My sociology instructor said all sort of false and foolish things ...but I had to suffer in silence.
