I wouldn't be surprised if the nurse was a worse bet. At my school the nurse is just the receptionist and she's not even allowed to touch the students or administer medicine. She had band aids and holds people's prescription meds in case of emergencies. Still though, if it's bad, see a real doctor
I got a 1.5-inch splinter completely wedged under my fingernail once, and that's actually one of the choices the ER doctor gave me. He said they could either anesthetize my finger and dig it out with a giant needle (which is what I ended up choosing), or I could wait for it to get infected and see if the pus pushed it out. He also said that it could stay wedged in there, get infected, and not come out on its own, at which point I'd have to go back to the doctor and have them dig it out while it was infected. So, go to the doctor.
You have two choices here. You could either listen to your teacher, or go see a qualified doctor.
Cut your whole hand off OP. Trust me, I'm a doctor.
