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
Dec 28, '04The 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

Dec 28, '04Quote from z's playaI sure hope not (ulcers), but I imagine it might effect some like that.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
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.
Dec 28, '04Quote from chris_at_lucas_RNThat'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 always figured that the B's that were 89.05 or so balanced out those A's that were 90.05's.
Dec 28, '04I'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, 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.
Dec 28, '04I strived very hard to do good inand 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 !
