I have read several threads about people failing first tests and being frustrated, but not many about doing well. After a slight hiccup with a dosage calculation exam we had to take at the beginning of the program (had to get a 90 on it within 3 attempts or you can't progress further in the program- I made a 86 on the first, 100 on the second), I have been really proud of my test grades and clinical check off scores.
I don't go around tooting my own horn. If someone asks about what I made on a test I just say that I'm happy with my grade. I know that I just need to worry about myself, but it is hard for me not to feel guilty for being proud of my grades when there are people who claim to study constantly and are failing.
I was just wondering if anyone else out there is feeling like this in their 1st semester. I'm taking school very seriously and it is awesome for that effort to be reflected through my scores. Maybe me feeling guilty about doing well when others are failing is a personality flaw that I'm going to have to overcome.
