I'm starting to get a little pissed off with my mental health instructor.
I resubmitted a paper on thursday of last week because there were a few corrections she wanted me to make that would make it better. Few being a bitch of a word, I happened to use the ONE nursing diagnosis that she can't stand because it's too "acquisitional", apparently "noncompliance" is a bad one to use...would have been helpful BEFORE writing the paper, but what the hell right?
So I choose to do Ineffective Coping, AND Denial, just in case one of those two, she doesn't like.
I resubmitted the paper to the drop box on thursday because she wasn't there. I get in the car and immediately call and leave her a message on her voicemail telling her that it was thursday, and I had just submitted the paper again.
Friday...I call and e-mail her.
Monday...I call her at 8am, and again at 4pm
Tuesday...don't call, she doesn't work
Wednesday (today)...e-mail her AGAIN, call
Now why is this a big deal?
This paper is part of the "clinical" portion of my class, you either get a U or an S, unsuccessful or successful.
I passed the class portion with a high B, almost an A.
However, if I don't pass the clinical portion with an S, then I don't get to go on to next semester because my clinical didn't pass.
I'm honestly not sure if ONE paper out of....12 is going to keep me from going onto the next semester seeing as how everything else was an S, but I would really LIKE to fricken know.
I have 11 successful papers, and 1 that's in limbo. While I would like to hope 1 paper would not be the reason for me not to pass the class...I also wouldn't be suprised if 1 paper was what did it.
Is it too much to ask, that someone e-mail me or fucking call me back when I've left them that many messages? Especially since -I- had to rush my ass off to get the paper in by friday, and even went out of my way to turn it in a day early so I KNEW it would be there on time.
Semester ended on MONDAY, it's now wednesday, and I still have received no call, no e-mail, no nothing from her. Here I sit wondering if I'm going to have to wait for my fucking grade card to come in the mail in order for me to be able to KNOW whether or not that 1 paper, that I did take the time to redo even though it wasn't my fault (no one ever said "don't use noncompliance" guess I was just supposed to "know"), is a good paper, or not.
She is usually very good about getting you things back on time, like the very next day, but it's been almost a week, and I haven't heard shit.
It's really starting to tick me off. I realize people have things in their lives, but if the semester ended monday and all grades had to be posted and submitted by then...why can't she tell me what I made on my paper?
