I clashed with a clincal instructor and I have never had this problem. I totally shut down in performance because she really taunted me. She would go and stand with her foot against the wall and look at me so angrily. I was so exhausted from fear that I just gave up. Do you think when she said "It's a Cultural Issue" that this made me paranoid or uncomfortable. She also compared me to other students that had technical experiences and I did not ("they are up here and you are down here"). Was that professional? Is it good for an instructor to yell at a student. I am 48; a grownup. She stood behind the patient's door and as a staff RN wanted to explain she evaluated me as not knowing how to give SQ injection which was not true. Encountering this has made me paranoid of my knowledge and instructors. Can you please tell me how to overcome this and should the President of the college be notified in regards to the "Culture Issue" statement?
