Yes, I was in the hospital after abdominal surgery. Throughout the days, many doctors and nurses stethed my heart, lungs, and abdomen, especially during their shift change. On my last day there, during the nurses morning evaluation of me, in walks a lady and 7 or 8 younger ladies in matching scrubs. The lady introduces herself as an instructor for a local university and these were her nursing students. They all stood around watching my nurse and then followed her out the door to the next patient. A short while later, the instructor and one of the students return and she somewhat asks/ informs me that the student will practice examining me. I of course give my consent because it's a totally hot scenario, and I'm so beyond bored and looking for some company.
The instructor leaves us and shuts the door behind her. After some chit chat, the student lowers my sheet and raises my gown to expose my abdomen, and examines and inspects my incisions carefully and thoroughly. She then rearranged my coverings before performing a HEENT exam while continually consulting a checklist of notes she had with her. Next she lowers my gown to my waist and begins auscultating me thoroughly. Heart, lungs, and abdomen probably spent 5-10 minutes listening very intently. After finishing and consulting her checklist again, she began putting on exam gloves and actually said, “And now the fun part.”
I got so excited, and very curious about what exactly she meant by all that. At that exact moment, in walks my surgeon and tells me I'm being discharged. He gives her a quick glance and then begins asking me questions and explaining to me the process of the next couple of weeks. My student stands there for a few seconds and then begins taking off her gloves and gathering her things. You could visibly see the dejection on her face and body language. It was actually sad to see.
I don't believe student nurses do any intimate exams of hospital patients, but it sure is fun to dream and fantasize about what could have been after she gloved up! To this day, I'm still curious about what exactly she was about to do that was “fun”.
