So I just "completed" my first semester in my ADN program, a fundamentals of nursing class. It's a NINE (9!!!!) credit hour class and I got a C in it 1 point away from a B. I am a 4.0 student, you can only imagine what this has done to my GPA. I would like to think I would be able to get into a master's program sometime in the future (NP, PA, CRNA) but now it seems like that is something I will have to rethink because I know they want competitive GPA's for programs like that. And due to the structure of my program, someone getting an A in one of the nursing courses would be like seeing a unicorn on any given day. Should I drop and pursue another path, or just complete the program living by the phrase "C = Nurse" and accept my fate?
