Re: “Nursing a Grudge

I graduated from SLCC's nursing program in December 2007. At that time our pass rate for the NCLEX exam was over 90% and was higher that the U of U or BYU. It was a time where you could be proud to say you were a graduate from this school and its nursing program. They had just built a world class lab at their South Jordan campus prior to my graduation and they had some of the best instructors in the state for the years I attended. Every one of them is on this list of instructors that has left. At the time I was in school as a full time student I was also working full time and was the parent of three children. It was the most busy, hectic, and challenging my life has ever been before and since then. My success as a student who graduated with high honors and as a nurse who has been successful in my profession since that time all goes back to these instructors and the lessons about nursing and life in general that they taught me. I think about them and those lessions all the time. As I provide care to my patients, as I precept new nurses in my work place, and as I go about my everyday challenges in life. It's sad to see how low a program can fall in such a short time. Sad to see such good teachers bullied out by the politics of administrators. Sad to now have to admit/explain that my school is not the same as it used to be.
Thank you Jennie, Georgia, Kim, Jane, Claudia, Diane, Barbara, and all the rest for making me the nurse and the man I am today. Don't forget one of the first lessons you taught us, "Those with the least amount of power are the ones with the most to lose". Don't stop trying to create positive change in the profession that you all love. Now that you're out from under their thumb, the administration are the one with the most to lose. The students already lost when they lost you. :(
