    This is very normal for programs like this! Next time, drop your sister off much earlier, or have a friend, neighbor, relative take her. If you were a part of a surgery team, this would be completely unacceptable.

    Time to learn that if you are on time, you are LATE! Get everywhere 10 minutes early.

    You are going to have a hell of a time on the job, if you do not change your attitude. Your actions were irresponsible. Get your priorities in order!
    No, was on the phone for a minute. Then had panic attack trying to find her on the floor, which I did after five mins. I hear you.

    You did not call before 6:15. These are her requirements.

    You need a long talk with mom, you are not a baby sitter. You also need to look for student housing and speak with a campus counselor about your odd home environment.

    Or your sister could have missed school. No biggy at 13.

    Even if you did, it's not on others to accomadate you. I think that's what you aren't understanding. A part of maturing is understanding this. Emergencies are exceptions- but in some cases, employers don't even accomadate those.

    Taking your sister to school was not an emergency. And, an email doesn't count.

    I hear you guys as I appreciate your inputs. I will just have to be there twenty minutes early from now on. And just do my best cause I do hope to be a Women's Health nurse so let me not ruin my chance. I already scheduled an appointment with my counselor and talked to my mom about everything.
    I apologized to the instructor and was worried she would have a negative impression. She said she doesn't hold grudges...and I should just take care of myself. So that's it I guess. Just gotta move on. I just overthink and needed to vent it out and hear other inputs. Thanks.

    I'm glad you changed your attitude. I agree with the others. And reconsider whether the requirements of this job are right for you. It has more rigorous time requirements than other jobs -as it should because of the type of job it is. I always consider those kinds of requirements before applying for a job or program. I have worked in environments like yours and in environments where lateness has a less draconian result. But for me being on time no matter what is 100% essential unless the person follows the right procedure for lateness and even then it should be minimal. Yes, this job has even stricter requirements but any job with a timing requirement should be treated in the most professional way absent a life and death emergency. (When I first read about your program my first thought was a self-absorbed one -how important it was that there be nurses there 10 years ago at the hospital when I arrived there in active labor - in that way I can relate!!)
