I am in a bad spot at this time. I started at the top of my class for the first 3 semesters. During the third semester my brother passed away and it really took a toll on me and in my last semester (which ran together with the 3rd semester) I failed my last class. I went to repeat the class and found out that I had to have surgery. I took a test 4 days after the surgery and failed, of course, and was told that there wasn't anything I could do about it so I marched on thinking I could recover and I just couldnt recover. Found out once the class was over I found out there were options for me during the semester but because the semester was over it was "too late". I was one point away from passing. I am crushed to say the least. I plan on getting my LPN, but it is hard finding a job in a hospital as LPN these days and I have to wait 5 years to enter a transition program. That is the worst part for me. So now I am trying to find out if I can start completely over in another RN program. From the first class, just do it all again, that's better than having to wait 5 years. I was in the top of my class and unfortunately things just seem to happen all at the wrong time and now I am trying to find out what else I can do, I want my RN I am not dumb or incapable just have horrible circumstances.
