Exam at U. Pennsylvania Requires Nursing Students to Ask Imaginary Patients Their Preferred Pronouns

Exam at U. Pennsylvania Requires Nursing Students to Ask Imaginary Patients Their Preferred Pronouns

“students who refer to patients by their preferred pronouns are showcasing ‘professionalism’.’”

The left is embedding this ideology into everything, so that it’s just a given, not even up for conversation.

RedState reports:

University of Pennsylvania Final Exam Requires Nursing Students to Ask Imaginary Patients Their Preferred Pronouns

Nurses — they (sometimes) provide tender loving care.

It makes sense, therefore, that they’ll need to be sensitive to pronouns.

Hence, the University of Pennsylvania’s trying to make sure.

According to instructions obtained by student publication The Statesman, a required nursing course’s final exam comes with a modern mandate.

In an integrated human anatomy class, students must ask their imaginary patient his/her/their/cos/ens/eirs/hirs/yos/zirs/ver preferred pronoun.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

For the final exam, students must submit a video-recording of themselves completing a full-body examination of an imaginary patient. The rubric tells students to begin their interaction “by stating full, preferred pronouns, and title.” They must ask the patient for their “preferred pronouns” as well.

If said student fails to pay proper pronoun respect, five points may be deducted from the 60-point test.

The Wire notes such pronoun instruction is common practice at nursing schools.

Moreover, it relays, “Another course syllabus titled ‘Integrated Pathophysiology, Pharmacology, and Therapeutics’ declares that students who refer to patients by their preferred pronouns are showcasing ‘professionalism.’”

“Master”! (I can just see the reactions….)

Last week I had an appointment with a large medical system where I was asked to supply my “gender identity” and “preferred pronouns” for the electronic medical records (EMR) system. I find that troublingly anti-scientific for a medical organization.

    What makes you think science has anything whatever to do with modern medicine? Have you not noticed the effect of covid on society the last year?

      Silly of me, I guess I’m dating myself. I still have this old-fashioned idea that medical people still follow science, but now they’ve progressed to following “THE Science.” Bestowed, no doubt, by “THE Scientist.” Whoever that is.

        I’m always dating myself. I enjoy my own company and dinner bill is lower that way.

I would walk out of a non-emergency situation if asked that.

First of all, why do exams need to be videotaped?

Second of all, I’d willingly lose the 5 points.

Finally, if a doctor or nurse or form asks me my preferred pronoun, I either don’t fill that part out or say “prefer not to answer.” An exam is intrusive enough.

It’s everywhere. I started to fill out a survey I received from Toyota about the new car I bought from them last year. Before I even got to questions about the performance of my vehicle, they wanted to know if I was “straight, gay, bisexual, transgender.” And, of course, the gender question had more than just “male, female.” I sent them a message that I would not fill out their survey because their personal questions are offensive and intrusive and woke.

“If said student fails to pay proper pronoun respect, five points may be deducted from the 60-point test.”

Points? Expel them immediately. If they have jobs, fire them.

“It’s Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis. Disrespect me by flubbing it just once, and I’ll see that you’re fired.”
