My grades are in and I didn't get any A's

  1. I got a B in Anatomy and a C in Psychology. My GPA went from a 3.0 to a 2.75. Not happy at all!

    Ahh Gordi, but at least you passed! Have you started nursing school yet? If yes, how far along are you? Sometimes it's hard to get back into the swing of school, but if you have more semesters in front of you, that just means more room for improvement!

    Don't beat yourself up about it, what's done is done. Concentrate on your next round of classes, and give it your all! I'm sure you'll do great!

    Gordi-
    I think most people here will agree that a B in A&P is awesome! I think sometimes I get in the whole mindset of getting A's and keeping up the GPA and lose focus on actualy learning and enjoying what I am doing. When we are nurses our GPAs won't mean a thing. Congrats on a sucessful semester, good luck in the future, and don't beat yourself up!

    Second what Renerian said. A's do not necessarily make you a good nurse. Don't be so hard on yourself.

    Gordi,

    Making a B in A&P is awesome, and a C in Psych is nothing to sneeze at, either! Grades are just one small piece of the picture--and yours are fine . . . better than fine!

    What's done is done, so let it go . . . a new semester is beginning and you'll have plenty of opportunity to work on that cum.

    Best of Luck!

    Well, you got what you earned in your courses. You can't be surprised about your final grades? Surely you knew all along what your exam/paper/whatever grades were and could calculate your final grade?

    Or do your professors grade on an arbitrary system of whim so that your grades are in no way a reflection of your academic ability?

    Gordi,

    You did a great job and your GPA is not bad..... who looks at your GPA when you graduate anyways? LOL

    Be proud of yourself!!!

    Gordi,
    Let me share a word of encouragement that a fellow nursing student passed to me when I first got a B and thought it was the end of the world-- "Do you know what they call the person whose name came last on the graduation list last semester?" They were still called NURSE!!!

    Just paraphrasing what I have heard many times on this board.

    "C=RN"

    So don't sweat a less than perfect GPA. I didn't get a 4.0 either, but I'm still here in school, and I'm still happy with how everything is going.
