My biggest fear is to not graduate with honors in school with my cohort. The pinnings that I have gone to, EVEVERYONE graduated with honors. Not sure if this is true with other cohorts or nursing students.. This is my last year in nursing school
and yes I had some struggles that held me back from excellent academic grades, such as financial issues(I have a family of 2 kids that I support) and family losses along the way, but I felt like I won't graduate with honors with my cohort during pinning.. I feel I would be embarrassed for being the only one without honors. I know I shouldn't be worried about it as long as I pass, but why do I feel so ashamed at the same time?
I felt I let a part of me down, but I also look at it this way that I still had the strength to keep moving forward regardless of how difficult nursing is and how overwhelming my person situation was.. Is there anyone out there who didn't graduate with honors and felt this way or is it just me???
I hear the saying: grades don't matter as long as you pass, but I feel like that's not true, especially if I want to go to grad school.
