Does this annoy you? - page 4

This attitude is beginning to grate on me! A lot of people on this board (and in our programs) indicate that a C will not "cut it" for them, they "expect" more of themselves... blah blah blah. I... Read More

    The only reason I even care about my grades is b/c I want to go on to get my Master's degree and possibly a PhD. I don't look down on people who work really hard but get lower grades than I do. I look down on the people who are lazy and mooch off others so they can pass. :angryfire

    I'm curious to know how many people get actual ulcers over their grades. Crazy.

    Last semester I thought I'd be one of them. But I smartened up real quick
    I sure hope not (ulcers), but I imagine it might effect some like that.

    For me the knowledge is far more important than the status of the grade. I want to be a great nurse and have the self satisfaction that I try my best no matter what grade I get while getting there.

    I know that there will be times when a C is the best I can produce. As long as I know that I gave it my best effort then I can be content.

    I always figured that the B's that were 89.05 or so balanced out those A's that were 90.05's.

    That's exactly what happened!! I made an 89.72 in one class then a 90.28 in another. So if you avergae them out....I should have made two A's, right?

    I'll be quite honest with you. With my prereqs, I would be very hard on myself in trying to get an A and feel a sense of loss if I don't get an A. But to be honest with you, when it comes to nursing school, while I will strive to do the very best that I can, if I can successfully get through nursing school with a "B." I will be very proud. I don't look down on students that don't get all "A's" or think less of them. Besides, from what I can see with nursing school...someone that gets A's on all tests will not necessarily make a good nurse if they can apply the knowledge that they have learned.

    I strived very hard to do good in nursing school and ended up with an 3.87 average. Doing good was a personal goal for me, nothing more, nothing less. Had I gotten a C in a class I certainly wouldn't have been devastated. A "C" is classified as average. Average is not so bad.

    The most important point I want to make is that in 28 years as a nurse not once has anyone asked me what grades I made ! Likewise, I've never asked a physician about his grades either !
