OP you absolutely must tell your facilitator.
I very strongly disagree that this is just something you have to get used to if you want to be a nurse. Document and report it and then spend a bit of time reflecting on it. It will take you about 3 seconds to see that this is a reflection on this doctor and it has nothing to do with you. You are capable and educated. You are also caring and strong and this ******* can not take that from you!
Definately report it. I am only an AIN and for the past few weeks everyday either at work or home,i have had tears from bullying that is happening at work towards me. I have only just reported it and swapped some of my shifts around to avoid it as much as possible coz i can barely cope at work currently.
You are a student still learning. Dont let anyone ever treat you like that.

I disagree with the belief you have to grow a thick skin in a bully culture. The more we speak out against this criminal behavior, then we succeedcin crushing it. Quite frankly, that doctor sounds mentally unbalanced.
I also don't think you should HAVE to grow a thick skin, however that is actually the reality of it.
It's not right and you absolutely should talk to your facilitator about what happened. It was really extreme.
However, if you are so inclined you can look at it as a great learning experience. You can't change the way the doctor acts, but you can change the way you respond to it.
I am not a nurse but have worked in the hospital system. At first I was very shy. You get eaten alive. Now, I would have said to that doctor "of course I don't know this yet, I am still a student nurse. Why don't you tell me about it." Then I wouldn't let it worry me.
You have to try really hard not to take things personally because you will always have people take things out on you - usually patients who might be in pain, have dementia or delirium, drug and alcohol dependence or just be cranky human beings.
In high pressure emergency situations you will have people yell at you, or snap at you. There isn't any time for hand-holding or pleasantries. It's not personal, it's just sometimes human nature in high-pressure situations.
If he's a great doctor he would be honouring his nurses not speaking to them like pieces of crap!
Make a complaint or you will hate your job and not want to learn. 💕
