- 0May 13, '13 by freckles23So I passed my first semester of nursing school! I was very discouraged thruout the semester only making grades averaging a 70 which is passing in our school. And I got an 83 on my final! It boosted my grade so much and I am so proud of myself! I wasn't sure I had the potential to pass and had bad anxiety of failing but I did it! The only bummer is the 3 of my friends that are my study group didn't pass (I believe its cuz they let their anxiety get the best of them, but so did i )and they were my best friends. So I'm kind of upset because we all worked so well together and the fact that I won't have that next semester sucks because no one in my class studies as well as all 3 of us together. There are only 20 kids in our class to begin with and now next semester will only be 15 kids. Its a small group and I got lucky about the class size cuz you get more attention being in a small group. Anyways I just wanted to share my success with everyone! I just will miss my friends a lot
- 0May 13, '13 by BrooklynRN11201congrats!! was this fundamentals that you just passed? I'm not saying this to discourage you at all, but keep it up with the study groups and whatnot... I got an A in fundamentals and am now really toeing the pass/fail line here in my last (Med/Surg) semester. it definitely gets harder, but you sound like a really hard worker and you'll get there!
