1. If I tell my students that something will not be on the exam, I will not change my mind without telling them and ask three questions about it.
2. I will actually take the time to look up the page numbers I want my students to read. I will never again just say "Read everything on Parkinson’s Disease," when I really only wanted them to know one of the sections on it.
3. If I make my students spend $100 more to get the newest edition of a book, I will use that book too. I won’t make the study guides and my test questions from the wrong edition and drive my students out of their minds.
4. If I am the evil person behind giving my students 300 pages of reading over a two day weekend, I will not try to blame someone else and act like I am the "student advocate."
5. I will not kick a wonderful person out of the program because she missed the cutoff in a non-nursing related class by 0.1%
6. I will bring a Super Soaker to class, and any time a student starts using my class time as their own "story time," I will shoot them.
7. I will give all students named Katie an automatic A in all classes.
8. When demonstrating how to do an important procedure, I will keep trying until I do it perfectly. I will not mess up and say "Well, pretend like I did it this way…" and continue on.
9. When a student can prove their answer should be correct on a test, I will acknowledge that my students might actually know what they are talking about, and give them credit. Especially if I am going to kick them out of the entire program over one test question.
10. I will proofread my test before I give it. Sudecteans to nout lyke haveing teasts thut arde fuell of typooos. If I fail to proofread my test, I will apologize and not just blame the secretary who typed it up for me, or say "Well we’ve given this exact same exam for three years." Doing something absolutely stupid three times does not make it any less stupid.
