I have dedicated the last few years of my life to a BSN program to become a registered nurse. This was not my first degree and it was a hard decision to leave my prior career to go for my dream. I was consistently successful throughout my program in clinical and my nursing classes despite the extreme stress to maintain what my school counts as passing (84). Yet I love nursing and went into my final semester's finals passing and came out failing one class, Critical Care, by 2 points with an 82. My school does not give credit for clinical grades or HESI exams (it's a only counted as a pass/fail) which I made excellent scores in. Despite my background in the program my dean would not budge on passing me. Now I don't know what to do. I even already had a job offer! My program requires you to come back and repeat the entire final year, Fall and Spring. Redoing all my hard work is too much to think about. It makes me feel sick! All I've done since I found out is cry. Does anyone know of any schools
- even online, that would accept transferred clinical work? I am in the Southeast. Or have any of you been in a situation like this? How/what did you decide? I'm so distraught I can't even think.
