trolldoll Posted October 10, 2015 Share Posted October 10, 2015 Hello all, I have been wanting to be a PA for a very long time. I love medicine. I started my path as a nursing student.I work very hard,always make the deans list, I'm one of the best students when it comes to tests and the actual studies(always top of my class when others are struggling to even pass) . Here is where my situation is turning really bad. This semester i have had the clinical instructor from nightmare on elm street. She has berated me in front of doctors,nurses, patients,etc. She has singled me out and wrote me up on every skill ive learned so far(even though she didnt see me perform any of them).In her report she said that she spends a time answering "many questions" i have. I have not asked her many questions. She made up stuff she didnt even see me not do. I stayed quiet and did hours of remediation.Other students approached me and told me they noticed she was singling me out. Well I'm sad to say that i was too afraid to ask for clarification on a HW and i was told I will fail the class for one single mistake i made under stress ( i have been so crushed by the humiliation and bullying). My question is, what is what is PA school like? I know nurses eat their young but what is the PA culture like?Is there even a little respect for each other and room for growth? Is curiosity encouraged or frowned upon? Any advice or answers will be greatly appreciated from you ladies and gentlemen. I haven't slept in two days.I cant stop looking for another school or option. PS I'm in my late 20's. Am I getting too old for this field? Would schools actually accept me if I do their pre reqs and other requirements?
