nursing professors

What your nursing professors don't tell you...

What your nursing professors don't tell you...

It is not hard for me to think back to the frustrating days of nursing school.

I worked as a tech in a busy emergency room throughout my time in nursing school. Upon graduating, I definitely felt as though I learned far more working as an ER tech than I ever learned in school.  

I vividly remember telling my mother (a seasoned nurse - i.e. an RN that most of her colleagues would define as a badass) that I was pretty sure some of my professors had never touched a patient or worked at the bedside before.

It wasn't that infrequently that we would learn something in class that was considered outdated in actual practice. 

I carried all of these sentiments with me...until I became a nursing instructor and learned some things that they usually don't share with their students. 

Information that I think would have been helpful, had I known it during school.

Well now, I am sharing it with you...
