Hi everyone, sorry for not posting much but nursing school
(as you all know) has been kicking my behind. I was in semester 3 of 4 last semester and I unfortunately did not pass. I got a 78% when we need a 79%....heartbreak city. What really bothers me is that this semester was far beyond what it should have been and I am not the only one to say that ~ everyone just about this past semester has complained how ridiculous the tests were. The level of thinking required to score high was only a level that came from experience, something as students we do not have. This has not been just this semester but several in a row that have failed about 1/5 of the class.
I was readmitted to repeat this Fall and thankful for that but I am now bitter towards my school and the administrators that run our program. If it were simply my lack of skills or time, I would be fine with all of this but we busted our butts for little results. I know that I will be able to pass this time but I no longer wish to remain at this school for my BSN after graduation next May. So I am considering transferring to University of Phoenix to complete the BSN. Has anyone gotten their BSNs or know someone who has from UOP? I plan on continuing for my Master's but that will have to be yet somewhere else because I want to major in Women's Health.
Sorry to be so long winded! I have been thinking a lot about all of this and taking the right path.
