I failed nursing school by 1 class

  1. 0
    I need some advise on what to do. I'm going to make it short and to the point....
    I failed my nursing program by 2 points in the last class. I took the class 2x and failed it both times because of some things going on in life that affected my focus and commitment. Before you tell me things i already know like i should have waited to go back, i didnt....and it was my own fault. I just wanted to finish and get in the field so badly that I though i was ready when i wasnt...

    But my school is now telling me i cannot re-take the class, and there is nothing they can do for me. So basically...i am 1 class away, and out of luck....I dont know what to do.

    The class is Peds/Maternity btw.

    If anyone has any advise please please please help

    PS. My school states that "I have attempted the max amount of units that a student can attempt." That's why I cant retake it.

    Our school has the same policy, you can only retake one class in the program and you can only retake it once, the only option you have if the circumstances are the same as my school is to look into other schools and see if they will accept your credits. Good luck and sorry you are going through this.

    Im sorry, that really stinks.
    Our program has the same criteria...If you fail 2 classes, you are out. I think your option is to apply to a new program and start over (or see if they will accept your classes).

    Apply somewhere else. They have a policy about failing, and I'm sad for you, but you're out of luck.

    I believe most nursing programs are the same. You are going to have to apply somewhere else and abide by whatever they tell you, you have to do to make it. Good luck and hope you find a way in somewhere.

    Peds/maternity was your last course?

    If it really is the last course, it might be worth meeting with the dean about finishing.

    My school is the same way..if you fail 2 classes you are out of the school. Period. Unfortunately one of my friends had to go through this

    I'm so sorry . I know it's hard when life gets in the way. Hopefully you can regroup and find a way to start over again!

    I'm sorry you are going through this but like the others said, unfortunately there is nothing that can be done if you reached the maximum attempt. My friend was dismissed from her program because she didn't pass a class but she cannot retake it. If you fail a class in her program, you are automatically out.
