Taken from my nursing student orientation manual: "Humans continuously interact with their environments in an attempt to maintain their biopsychosocialspiritual integrity."
Does this make anyone else want to vomit?
It gets worse. This comes directly from my first assigned textbook reading: "Throughout the pages of recorded history, nursing has been integrated into every facet of life. A legacy of human care was initiated when, according to the "Book of Exodus," two midwives, Shiphrah and Puah, rescued baby Moses and hid him to save his life. This legacy of caring has progressed throughout the years, responding to psychological, social, environmental, and physiological needs of society."
As if the vague and pretentious tone isn't bad enough, now our training is viewed in reference to bible stories?
The hardest thing about school will be listening to all the self-important emotional fodder. I'm going to write "Mouth Shut, Head Down" on my mirror so I don't forget.
