Nursing Student "Dismissed" for Facebook Photo’s Epic Battle Continues

Nursing school really is a circus, complete with clowns, ringmasters, lions, and flaming hoops to jump through. Johnson County Community College lawsuit. To hear their response, one might assure this girl expelled a fetus herself and was proudly poking it at it with a pair of hemostats. She didn’t. She took a picture, which her instructor allowed, excited to be participating in healthcare. I would really like to know what the “mother” in regard to said placenta thinks of this nonsense.
