After struggling to get into nursing school (6 years, co-reqs plus pre-reqs while working) I finally succeeded! I started this fall and learned quickly how much more difficult it was than I could ever realize until I actually got it and started. I have been working/studying hard but unfortunately I messed up, at the much needed recheck on medications (3rd try) I failed. (combination nerves and for whatever reason completely forgetting to give my "patient" PO meds--I even prepped my drug cards and grabbed the darn cup for water!)
This means I am out for the semester. I did the exit interview and withdrawal, all on the same day as failing, as well as doing the request to re-enroll next semester, Spring. My intructors told me that means I will graduate December instead of June 2014, so that isn't too terrible. My close friends and family are being amazing and really supportive. I am trying to figure out what to say, if anything to people at work. I am keeping my hours the same as is, planning on practicing checkoffs, finishing my huge drug list for next semester (will need it anyway!) and chugging along as I have always done. I am just stuck on what to say at work...suggestions? Thank y'all!
