By one point!! I am (was) in my first semester of a BSN program. I took fundamentals, Theoretical foundations, Health Assessment, and Pathophysiology. I am definitely not someone who has to have their "A", although I think they are nice to have and I have had my share, but I have never, NEVER had a D!! I made a B in all the other classes and they could have easily been A's had I not spent soooo much time on patho. At my school the lowest passing grade is a 77. The instructors do not curve, or round up. I am proof. I failed patho with a 76.something or other. I am pretty sick about the whole thing. It now puts me behind, and I can never fail another course in this program or else I am out. Talk about pressure. I am not excusing myself, but my dh travels and I have a 15yo cheerleader in highschool, a 5yo who plays soccer and a 2yo. I guess I am just having a little pity party here and we all know misery loves company. I just wanted to know did anyone else here fail anything and still graduate? I really would love to hear some success stories....I will NOT give up!!
p.s. My instructor in patho, was very kind and encouraging too. the class average on the last test was like 74(failing) and the class average on the cumulative final was 76. No one out of 40+ students got an A, and 15 of us failed. Only myself and one other was really close with in a point. UUGGGHHH!!
Robin-Who can now work as a student nurse b/c she can only take pharmacology and retake patho this spring-no clinicals!
