I am in my second semester, I have had three exams and have managed to fail two of them. I am studying my buns off and doing practice questions with my reviews and rationales book, online and from the lectures, im studying with a study partner who's doing well, I've seen my advisor, been to all exam reviews so far, yet when I take my exams I blank out, get distracted and anxiety kicks in.
I've tried doing some relaxation techniques and what not, and they have not worked.
I want this so bad I am still hoping of pulling myself up, and passing. I only have 3 more exams left.
I'd like to think that my capacity to be a wonderful and great nurse isn't measured by how well i take exams or read a book. yet, what I am facing says otherwise.
I'd also like to think that if million other nurses over the years can do it, I can do it too.
But I feel like a failure. so bummed.
anyone else, come this close to failing out and have pulled through?... I just need to know that there is still a light and beeping IV's at the end of the tunnel waiting for me to hang a new bag into. (trying to be funny, I apologize if otherwise.)
