I'm in N4 and failing. Previous semesters were fine, I have B in N1, and high C's in N2 and N3. I am soooo discouraged. I study for at least five hours a day, all weekend, read the book, read care plan book, read the prentice hall study guide for med surg, and for some reason I just can't get my grade up! The teachers won't help, I have asked over and over what I am doing wrong, and they just keep giving me the same advice.. study groups, practice questions.. and I DO THAT! Is N4 just that much harder than other semesters??? My ave is 63 right now, and there is one more exam and the final. Teachers are recommending withdrawl, which has to be done by this thursday, I don't understand WHY this is the only available advice. Is it possible to bring that grade up? I need some encouragement, only nursing students get it, my family is supportive but they aren't nurses or nursing students, so their advice is to keep trying. What to do???? Help!
