I posted this on another board but noticed that this board is quite busy and with a lot of great info. I took the test on Thursday and found out yesterday that I failed
. It has been a very tough several months for me - a very close relative died (former nurse and my mentor) a week before graduation and have been quite busy dealing with all the last details out of state. Then two weeks ago my sister-in-law and nephew moved in after a very bad assault and is still having medical problems from it. Instead of studying, I have found a place for them to live, etc while I have been going to work and doing my internship program. How do I explain this to my Nurse Manager tomorrow without sounding like I am "making excuses" for doing so poorly :imbar? I made good grades in school while working full time, I passed Hesi before taking the class and I also took the Kaplan course. I also freaked out after the 75 mark and the 140 mark during the test when I took all 265 questions?
