Second Semester Nursing Student Educates Staff Nurses on How to Properly Do Their Job

  • 7.8K

HARTFORD, CT – Second semester nursing student, Emily Rothenberg, thoroughly enjoys instructing her fellow staff nurses on how to properly do their jobs.

“Who can I educate today?”

“Oh, one of my favorite parts of nursing school involves teaching nurses out in my clinical rotations,” said Rothenberg.  “They may not always show it, but deep down I know they are appreciative.”

Rothenberg has been known to use phrases such as “in my practice” and “it’s evidence-based practice” on multiple occasions.  Somehow she is already using the term, “where I trained” even though she is still in school.

Rothenberg boasts, “So far I have instructed 17 nurses on how to properly insert a Foley catheter.  I couldn’t believe all the steps they were missing until I came in to assist.”

Kerri Myers, a 14-year veteran nurse, was overwhelmed with joy to have Rothenberg point out her multiple errors committed throughout the day.

“It was nice having Emily show me what I was doing wrong,” stated Meyers.  “Once you are away from school for a while, it is important to have someone fresh and up-to-date on topics to teach you what to do.”

Myers continued, “I mean I thought my vast experience in handling over 150 delirium tremens patients in my career was worth something.  Emily reading a few chapters in school quickly trumped that.”

Rothenberg also couldn’t believe how much food and drink was routinely left sitting in the nurses station.  “I was shocked at how many nurses brought food to the station.  Don’t worry, I promptly instructed them of the Joint Commission rules to remove all food and drink.  They hadn’t even heard of the 3 nurses dying at Mercy Hospital!”

Another staff nurse, Peter Wilkins, was impressed with Rothenberg’s knowledge and attitude.  “She speaks evidence-based practice, and the way she instructs us on what we are doing wrong is very tactful.  I’m now excited to see her on the floor since I know I’ll learn another thing I’m doing wrong.”

Rothenberg’s final statements were, “I hope with my fresh education, I can continue to lead the way in correcting my fellow nurse colleagues, as what they have learned is antiquated.  They are SO lucky to have me here!”

    Then she tried to pull that shit with a paramedic, and was promptly slapped in the back of the head and told to go fuck herself.

    Amazing that medical students have very little to contribute whereas this fresh person has learned so much. She is truly a treasure.
