I am currently in nursing school
and I am not doing as well as I have hoped. I am the type of person that takes longer to learn things, but does extremely well once things are learned. I am a hands on learner.. note taking and reading isn't as easy for me. I've had to retake 2 classes, but so did about 10 other of my classmates.
I am just wondering if there are any nurses that struggled in school, but excelled once you got into the real world and started working? I just need some encouragement!

From what I have read, I see no indication that your performance is "lousy" the word that you never used in your post; meanwhile other posters have used this very same word. Moreover, you said you did not perform as well as you had hoped. What did you hope for? Did you hope to be an A+ student, and now you are a B student? Not knowing what your benchmark for excellence is, it is hard to say if you are indeed not performing as well as you hoped. My guess is, you are doing quite well; it is just you are being hard on yourself or see other students do better, and feel that you DO underperform. In either case, you may be doing much better than you think.
You are quite the optimist! Please do tell - on what evidence are you basing your "doing quite well" assessment?
Oh, and for the record, *IMPORTANT TO NOTE* the OP has edited out the part where he/she is failing courses. That piece of information is essential in evaluating subsequent posts.
