i’m just starting nursing school and i was wondering if we had to give sponge baths to each other in class, i know i will to patients but i’m not comfortable doing it to some one i have to see everyday for two years… i dont want them to see me naked. Is it true?

No, I haven’t heard of anyone giving sponge baths to one another!! The only thing we had to do on each other in nursing school was a breast exam and give each other shots (in the upper butt location but you couldn’t see anything). No one was ever naked. When I was a CNA we learned how to give sponge baths to nursing home residents and we practiced on them, but not on each other.
