Pass the f-ing ibuprofen, please.

Today, we registered to take the state board exam, the NCLEX.

It required a lot of-

and apparently, that blew a lot of my classmates’ minds.

They cannot read instructions for shit nor shinola.

Answer questions 18 & 19 ONLY if you’re a foreign student who completed coursework in another country.

TEACHER!!!! WHAT’S OUR COUNTRY CODE FOR #18?

TEACHER!!!!  WHAT DOES THAT MEAN ON #19?

And shit on a cracker, they didn’t know what to put for THEIR FUCKING NAMES!

Last name, First name, Middle name.

TEACHER!!!! DOES THAT MEAN MY MIDDLE NAME OR MY MAIDEN NAME?

TEACHER!!!! WHAT DOES THIS MEAN- MY LEGAL NAME?

Oh dear Lord, these women do NOT need to be turned loose with drugs & needles!

20 days…not sure I can last that long without throttling someone!

    Honestly Linda, I expect if all 16 make it, at least half of them are going to have nervous breakdowns when they start working and they don’t have 45 minutes to calculate the difference in 1 cc & 1 ml or when a doctor screams at them for not knowing the cc = ml to start with.

    They are so uptight it’s unbelievable.

    Amazing, just amazing. I do hope the dears don’t try to work in another state. How could they handle continuing education?

    After 24+ hours pondering this, I still am not sure what to say about it.

    I can’t decide if they’re so overwhelmed by everything, that the little things freak them out.

    or

    If they’ve got book smarts, but are lacking in common sense.

    or

    If they’re all freaking insane & we’re going to be in true trouble when they graduate.

    They are all the uptight, I’m-gonna-puke-I’m-so-nervous types. The first day of clinicals scared them, all exams scare them, anything new scares them. They don’t adjust quickly when they do adjust.

    And very few of them will shut their damned mouths & open their ears long enough to actually hear & comprehend instructions.

    Yeah, I’m gonna throttle someone before it’s over with. One sat on my arm today and I told her to get her fat ass off my arm…she did, quickly.

    Makes fixing and flying these airplanes out here pretty simple.

    Even when we put kids into the heat of the Damage Control/Fire Fighting training which is very real, they would adjust quickly. But failure then meant very bad things would happen.
