I’m Not Your Mother

September 5, 2011

Dear Nursing Students:

I am not your mother. This means I will not clean up after you when you make a mess. I will not continue to remind you that you cannot be on your cell phone texting 24/7, especially in class. I am not a psychotherapist, so I can’t help you figure out your custody situation with your ex, your personality conflicts with other students, or your own depression (seek help, please).

What I can do is assist you in navigating the complex and interesting world of medicine. I can offer insights based on my personal experience as a nurse. I will spend extra time with you outside of class, tutoring you in areas where you’re struggling. Last but not least, I will give my all to make sure you succeed.

Come to think of it, that sounds exactly like something a good mother would do. Okay, I’ll give you that. But I’m still not going to clean up after you.
