So I failed out of nursing school
by one point in my class. I am really down about it. I have really bad testing anxiety. I am really good hands on but when it comes to the textbook and testing I just have a hard time. I basically have two options at this point. Stay at my school and switch majors to respiratory therapy and finish that in two years for an associates degree and go back to nursing (dual degree program) or just go to a different school and start over on nursing. I just don't want to waste anymore time then I have. I love nursing and I do not see myself doing anything else. It is my passionate and I am so heartbroken that this happened. I just have no idea what to do.
Don't be discouraged. Theres a lot of options here that can be done. It's also important to realize that everything happens for a reason and you may not understand why it occurred but you will later. You never know, depending on the 2nd nursing program youre in it may be 10x better or you may graduate with honors. you honestly don't know. Now you can get your RT if you like,
OR you can do LPN (1 year) get you ASN after (1 year) get your BSN (1-2 year).
OR you can do ASN (2 year)
OR ASN (2 year) then BSN (1-2 year)
OR BSN program with your prerequisites it may not even be 4 years, itll take 2-3 year.
If your passion is nursing, don't give up on it. Just focus on becoming one, don't focus too much on timing.
