I am in my 2nd semester towards my associates degree. I decided to go back to school right before I ended up finding out my husband was cheating one me which lead to divorce. I am 49 and suffering from peri menopause symptoms, trying to get over the emotions of the divorce, and suffering insomnia. We need a 76 or better to pass Nursing 102. My first exam I got a 77.6%. Today was my 2nd exam and from my calculations I probably got somewhere between a 70 and 74, hopefully they scale the grades. I am frustrated and feel like quitting. If I hadn't studied, then I would expect a low grade, but I studied my ass off.....and I am so frustrated. I have always wanted to be a nurse, but maybe I bite off more than I can chew at this point in my life. But considering my age its now or never. And there is the extra pressure to get my degree, since I gave up my full-time job for this and I am a single woman now trying to support herself. Has anyone else been in my shoes? I sure would love some advice. Sad in the northeast.
