The lecture instructors were amazing, helpful, wanting us all to do good and to pass with a high GPA. They were friendly and included any personal experiences in which they thought would help us prepare for the real world of illness, pain, compassion, and empathy. I was taught the importance of being extremely efficient, patient, competent, expressing excellent communication skills, and effective patient charting. The hardest part of the training was my OB-GYN clinical instructor. This elderly woman openly expressed her lesbian lifestyle which I thought was extremely inappropriate. In addition to that, she bullied me, for some reason because I expressed a bit of disinterest in OB-GYN. I remember one day when she pulled me into a room with a woman about to give birth. She put a chair right up to the foot of the bed, told me to sit, and told me to get as close as possible. The baby started to come out. As I smelled a disgusting odor and saw the blood vessels breaking and spouting out blood, I became very nauseated. I stood up from the chair and a politely asked to be excused. The instructor followed me, took me aside in the hallway and said: "You know, I just may fail you for this clinical". I went to one of my other instructors and told her about my experience. She assured me that I would not be failed, and to not worry about her at all. I was also informed that the OB-GYN instructor had had several complaints under her belt. Needless to say, I had a lot of anxiety during my nursing school years.
