Bad day,

  1. I had a bad day today. I am repeating the first semester of nursing school I just took my last unit test tonight I got a 73% which is failing. I do have a 80% overall. But I still have my final worth 300 point. I dont think I will have trouble passing. Its just that it is disappointing b/c this is my second time. Last time I had a 73% overall at this time. So I guess I can look at it that way. Well I just needed to vent. Thanks

    I'm sorry about that. Good luck the next go around.

    Sorry you are feeling so down. Pick yourself up, and realize that nursing school is harder than any other class we've ever taken! You can do it! We all have to learn new ways to study for nursing, because we have to learn to think critically, where as before we could memorize the material and that was it. Be sure and read the thread "how many of you had to repeat a course". You'll see that you are not alone. You didn't make much below passing, so that shows that you are doing something right! Good-luck, and don't give up!!!

    Thats great!!! I know how you feel the first time I got a 76 on a nursing exam I was like this has to be some kind of bad joke or something because I studied so hard. Guess what that 76 was this semester, I got a 92 on the next exam and a 90 on my final and ended up with a B+.

    ugh!!! Nursing professors can be difficult at times, but we have a tough job. Here's a few hints that I hope you find helpful. I've been teaching nursing now for 7 years and have found this to be helpful to my students. 1. ASK QUESTIONS!! I love participation, it indicates interest and helps me as an instructor understand which teaching theories work best for my students. 2. If the author thought it was important enough to use bold ink,,,,ya better know it!! 3. Take each section of a chapter as an entity,,treat it as its own chapter. This way you will better remember specifics. Nursing is a difficult field, only if it's perceived to be difficult. When you're studying,,,disect your chapters, subtitle has specifics that we expect you to remember, this is the only way to learn nursing effectively. Hope this is helpful

    Well, looks like I won't be graduating until May 2005. I have to repeat Adult Nursing II in the summer, then I'll go on to OB/Peds in the fall, with spring being my last semester. It's been very depressing, but I will survive.
