Nursing Schools and Placentas

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

A couple of excited nursing students recently thought it would be OK to take pictures of themselves posing with a placenta. They posted the pictures on Facebook and, instead of tons of glory, they got a serious kick in the gut.

What happened?

The four students involved were kicked out of school.

The case is now in courts. Apparently an instructor did not actually tell them “no” when they asked if they could take the picture. The picture did not identify the owner of the placenta, either.

The school, on the other hand, simply found the behavior unprofessional.

What do you think?
