    I've not heard of an LPN school being run by a hospital. You stated that it was the school's policy in holding the check. Is that is writing somewhere? Any 'policy' should be in writing. Maybe the instructor knows something about your grades you don't know. You need to check this out.

    Hi,
    I feel for you. Nursing school is hard! You need a routine and organization to your studying. I would buy the books "so and so made easy." Go to the book store and look for condensed books on the topic you are studying such as maternal health or peds. I would read the chapters in those books which would point out the important topics, then go and skim and read my big textbooks, writing notes, typing notes, and index cards. I would get up at 4:00am so i could have study time before the kids got up. Every day i would study hrs before class and after including weekends. I do not think i had one full day off in nursing school. You can do it but must make the commitment! If you currently at "C" grades you can easily pull up to "B" grades by studying. Today is sunday, are you prepared for the coming week? From a single mom.
