    I think now that you know what to look for, you will do better on the other exams. One test will not determine your future of becoming a nurse. I know students in my nursing class who did not do well on one or two exams and are in. Do not listen to Alpha13. Good luck to you.

    I can not lie to you. It is true, this failure on your part ruins your dreams of ever becoming a nurse! :mortarboard:
    Whoa, Alpha13. I hope you write back soon to explain this joke.

    Rnsoon, I agree with all the encouragement you've received here. It's tough when we don't make as good a grade as we think we should, but we also learn from each experience. That will help us become good nurses, too. And as the previous post says, never change an answer, unless you made a mistake and mark the wrong one. I've been told that by more than one instructor, and it's held true. Hang in there! We're all in this together.

    I was actually hoping this was a joke :uhoh21:

    Take what you learned from it and look forward to the next test, don't keep looking behind.

    though reading alphas comments may seem rude, I detect sarcasm in the satement. One exam will not ruin your chances at being a nurse. If anything it gives you more of a push to study harder.
    Glad someone saw it :wink2: I guess I should have added a at the end. But ya there are a million of these "OMG I need a shoulder to cry on threads" and the title of this one finally compelled me to post. You guys are like a sea of estrogen that is slowly drowning me

    I did really bad on my first exam too (last year), but each test got a little better. I ended up with a B. In A&P I and II. You can do it! (if I can I know anyone can.):wink2:

    Alpha13, this comment won't earn you any brownie points, either (unless you actually bake us brownies). Better stop while you're ahead! :kiss

    Don't be too hard on yourself. Now you know to study harder..

    The publisher of my A&P text book has a website that has flash cards, labeling, and practice tests per chapter. I would go on it atleast 4/5x a week and spend an approx. hr on it. It helped me a lot.... Perhaps your text book has a website as well. Good luck!!!

    Don't beat yourself up over it... pick yourself up, brush yourself off, and be determined to do better next time!

    One thing that I have learned is not to go back and change answers - because I have found out the hard way that your first instinct is usually the right one!

    Hang tough ((((hugs))))
