B student

  1. I am a mainly B student, I used to not mind B's until it started being the only thing that I'd mainly get. Every semester I'd maintain straight A's all semester right up until the final's or maybe a few last minute assignments that would mess up my A. If you look at my percentages, you'd see that a majority of my B's are 88, 87, 89 percents. I am literally always borderline A's and always end up with B's. I'm just ranting.

    My deal was to always ace the first few exams/projects because, like you, my grades would end up slipping as the semester progressed. Just would lose focus. But the strategy worked for me.

    Bs are fine! Just focus on getting through the program. Good luck.

    When you get a job your coworkers and manager will believe you're an A student without asking you if you show you're smart. So what I'm saying is that your grades on record don't impact how people are going to view you or your hiring chances, it's all in how you act and show you have what it takes.

    In most nursing schools you need 92+ for an A, and a B is 85-91. As long as you're passing with a C though, the most important thing is learning the material. Being able to apply that knowledge going forward is the end game for all of us.

    Best of luck!

    Actually, an A is 90 and above. Usually an A- is 90-93.

    I wish you the best of luck! If you get a chance to write an essay or be interviewed when applying to the actual nursing program, remember your personality will be a big factor, maybe over grades. Let us know what happens if you think of it!
