Quote from Britney J
I have failed two check offs, although they only count 5% each I am basically distraught. I feel as if I need some kind of medication because I ha e never been in this kind of predicament. If anyone knows what I should do to try and resolve the problem I would greatly appreciate the advice. P.s. I know most of you have said that your school allows you to redo the check offs... Mine doesn't. I failed the Foley catheter because I broke sterile technique and she gave me a d. I also failed the po meds because I didn't hear her tell me what time medications to give, so I calculated all of the po meds correctly , but I ran out of time.
If you break sterile technique, STATE it... I have done this in testing and stated it, was able to verbalize what I would do in response to the break.
Seek clarification ALWAYS...do like a "read back" method with a "quote back". I find during any type of testing scenario to have done form of anxiety during return demonstration techniques, even during testing situations.
Do you get to stay in the program?? Then, you WILL be OK.
It happens. Looking forward, you can and will do better. Follow through with those tips during the rest of your studies.
If that is 10% of your grade, how are you doing in the rest of the course? If you need help, seek out your instructors to help create a plan on achieving success for passing. If you are doing well, then it may make a difference in points as far as a B+ to a B-, and that is still a great grade.
If you feel as though you "need some kind of medication," I suggest you seek out counseling and support at your school. Find out what is occurring in your thought processes on why you feel this way, and find strategies to help you through nursing school. If you make a plan, you will find a way to your success. Good luck!!!!
