hi, I have a huge problem. This is my third year at a community college. I have previously taken the anatomy, English,psychology, and other requirements to enter the nursing program. I am 21 going on 22. I started fundamentals the fall of 2002 and failed. I was readmitted and passed fundamentals and was enrolled in medical surgical nursing this spring but was told this week that I wouldn't pass clinical to drop the course. I just don't know what to do. I love learning about medicine, helping people, and being there in their time of need. I'm very upset because I've been sent to several people on campus, referred to OVR for testing, and now will have to go to counseling. I feel like I've just been ripped to shreds. The dean of nursing won't do anything as she supports the teachers dicision, the dean of instruction won't help, and now I have no major, possibly an F on my transcript, and I'm in jeopardy of loosing my financial aide again. I will likely have great difficulty getting into another school. My problems centered around communication, time management and stress-induced anxiety in which I had difficulty applying theory in the clinical setting but the teacher did not help, she really made me feel stupid. I've been told I have weak mechanical skills and am not suited to nursing. But is it possible to overcome these barriers? I've known blind and deaf people that became nurses. Can anyone help?
