Nursing student suspended over medical scrubs
Heather Stickney was suspended last month after taking home scrubs she had worn during a rotation at Catholic Medical Center. If her appeals of the suspension are rejected by college administrators, she may not be able to afford to start the year over again in the fall, and doesn't know when or if she could earn her degree, she said. Her professor and clinical adviser failed Stickney on the grounds that she had stolen the scrubs and then lied about it. Stickney says it was a misunderstanding, citing an unblemished academic record and testimonials from other students and nurses. Her first appeal to the department chairwoman was denied, but she's filed for a second with another administrator.
