Ok, I started my nursing journey with my sis in law, well we jus got finish our first semester last week and I passed (barley) an she failed. Well we both needed to pass the final to pass..she needed a 88 or something and I needed a 72 well before going into the final we talked, she has a bachelors degree in business, me i have just have my CNA an I work as a tech in a hospital. Well she went on an on about how she doesn't think she wants to be a nurse from the things she seen and how she's over how difficult the program is, and that she would just work as a CNA if she failed, and how she would root me on as I go through the program. She would go on about her not having time to study because she has an infant. Ok she has a infant sure but she rarely had her because the grandmother would always have her, I mean ALL THE TIME. And she doesn't work. Me on the other hand she would say I had it easier because my child is older( 3) but I don't have that help I have my child every time I'm not at work or school...and on top of that I work part time 12 hr shifts. I just found away because I really want this, when the family would have something I wouldn't go, I would study. (Which they have something every weekend) And when I would go it would be for a short while. Which I'm noticing I'm going to have to step up my game even more. Basically now she doesn't txt me, I reached out to her to see if she was going to reapply but she jus short talking me which is not her. I knw she's upset even though she tried to make it seem like she didn't care, but it seems like she's mad at me for passing or something....
I think you should be proud of yourself. There's alot of people that are jealous because you're doing better & try to make you feel bad about doing good. I go through this same situation all the time. I graduated last year, and all of the girls I went to high school with, we all started college together. At first, we all used to talk about school then they started not doing so good. As of now, one is still in support classes & failing those, one girl dropped out after she failed all of her classes first semester, and one girl said she is thinking about not going back after this semester. I finished my first year of college w/ a 3.68 GPA and ready for the second year. Every time I tell them how well I am doing they don't seem interested at all or come up with an excuse for why they aren't doing good .. Sometimes they don't even respond to my messages about school (or say "oh"). Now we RARELY ever talk because I think they don't like the fact that I'm succeeding. The only thing you can do is be proud of yourself because you pushed yourself to do well & it's not your fault others aren't in the same boat.
Congrats on passing & Good luck!
