hey Pal, i give a lot of respect to people who enlist in the military and put their lives on the line for the good of the country. enlisting is a brave and selfless act, but you ought to have a little more respect for people, especially if you're planning on becoming a nurse. calling people racist crap probably isn't going to sit well with people here.

didn't you serve with any black people? have some respect for your fellow soldiers, even if you can't muster it up for your fellow man.

Abusive and racist language is not welcome on this site. What is more, such posts are unprofessional and unbecoming to nurses or those who say they wish to become nurses and will not be tolerated.

Post My appologize to all the Color people and Whites

If you understand I did not use racism for labeling but to display my FRUSTRATION over some irritating Nurse Instructors who play with the minds of the innocent.


My clinical instructors are lucky that I was an LT in the US ARMY and therefore dealth with several dissappointments, and got useto of it. If this was a civilian they would have dealth it in a VERY unpleasent way.

However, I realize the extent of this and I appologize for my STUPIDITY.



Please forgive me if you guys didn't understand the CONTEXT of the literature where the wording is used.

I am NOT RACIST. RACISM is in DIRECT name calling. I did not do that. Ofcourse I used the TERROR wording by mistake but back in my remote town this is VERY COMMON practice when displaying frustration.

Angry not racist??? I don't get that at all

It still boggles my mind how you can be so negative towards your clinical instructors. Yes, you have a right to be frustrated, but to go off on a racist rant- and it isn't only direct name calling as you state-even your title of your last post is offensive to me (a "white" person). In Nursing (and in LIFE) you need to treat everyone the same way and to separate people into "colored" and "white" is being racist. Despite the tint of our skin everyone deserves to be treated fairly and equally, your comments about these clinical instructors was not.
In Nursing one needs to look at the people they are/will be taking care of as someone in their family, basically thinking to themselves "Is this how I would want my grandparent/parent etc to be treated??"
Maybe it is a good thing that you will not be nursing right away, because even though you have many years of service for our country (which is respectable)under your belt you obviously have not grasped the concept of caring for your fellow man and the reason behind going to war which is as I understand it, to protect the civil liberties of the US/world. I would be scared to have to work with a nurse that carries your attitude.

Cool Response to runningnurse

Ok,
I have made my appologie. Please, I will not go over this again.

The word "color" and the word "white" simply means that some of us are different color than others. Just like we label orange, pear, banana, grapes, and so on.... We don't call all fruits oranges.

There is no racism in that statement, this is becoming rediculous. I got scientifically BUSSIER things to do than debate about some BORING subject on RACISM. Only some LOSER in SOCIOLOGY or some other WASTED degree talks about RACISM for a LIVING.

You will bring that love of entertaining with you to your nursing, just as we all bring our own personalities and style. I am a bit of a show off and I love to make my patients laugh. I often tell them "well you are my captive audience" Humour can be healing if you don't do it just for your own satisfaction. Its part of treating the whole person. It can break the ice and help develop the theraputic rapport and relationship you'll need. It can also help to distract someone if they feel in pain or sad. I might even possiblly be silly with a patient while catheterising them if it was ok with them and maybe they started it and not going to compromise their care (it's amazing what little old ladies will be silly about) You sound like you'll be fun to have on the ward when you graduate.

You don't have to be scared of me. Be scared of throwing judgments on others without thinking.
I am sad to hear that you don't want me to be a nurse.
Ofcourse I cannot change your opinion about me. However, I don't appreciate it when you say that "going to war is about protecting civil liberties of the US/world" obviously you have never seen a war. A naive child, you are. I have seen bodies of Iraqis torn from the waist and labels put on them saying "this is what happens when you F*** with US" I don't see this as protecting civil liberty but rather taking away and causing the reason for civil liberty. I am not PROUD of what I did. I have nightmares not about the war but about my best friends I lost. Everytime I smell gasoline, it takes me back to Iraq and the horrible dismantled bodies of many NON-COMBATANTS. I was a Lieutenant in the US Army and I HATED IT because I saw many things, I wish I was NOT BORN to see. This type of exsistence sucks.

It feels to me Pal that you have many issues to work through. I am sure you will make a great nurse, but there is something that you will have to deal with here. As nurses we are expected to care for and to treat people who live their lives in ways we do not like. We do not have to condone their behaviours but we do have to care for them without judgement. We have to keep our opinions on them to ourselves and we have to get over our personal and moral views.

Who said I got issues? You ungrateful COWARDS can never understand this because you are too INFERIOR and living off your own selfish gains. I wish the Gov't could throw people like you in force labor camps.

People like you think that they have the RIGHT to reap the benefits of the SOCIETY, for which many have SELF-SACRIFICED. I AM DISGUSTED by all of you. I am MUCH BETTER MAN than any of you SISSIES.

AND NOW, you are going to teach ME ABOUT CARE. Well excuse me CIVILIAN Julie, I didn't ask for your MORAL guidance or your blessings. Being a Soldier and an Officer displays an XTREME degree of MORALITY and GREAT commitment under great DANGER. What are you, some 3rd CLASS Nurse in UK? You know I have a lot more administrative experience than you could ever imagine.
