    Frankly, I am tired of nursing students comparing grades and being so competetive.

    MishlB, I'm not trying to be disrespectful, but....didn't you read the title of the thread before you clicked? When I'm tired of something I can avoid...I simply stay away from that something!

    Anyways-- with that being said....I had a so-so week. I earned a B and C on my a & p lab exams, (my first C in this class) an A in Algebra, and a B in my a & p lecture exam. (my first B in this class)

    I know my grades aren't bad, but my a & p instructors both gave me looks like they were disappointed in my performance for these tests.


    I'm so glad this semester is almost over!!!

    Good luck to each of you.

    I believe the student nursing board is supposed to be supportive environment for us to vent, give hints, ask for help, etc. I see the grades post as a motivator, that there are other people out there doing what I'm doing. It's a way to pat ourselves on the back, encourage others, or vent about a bad grade. Let's keep it nice!!
    MishlB, don't read the thread if you don't want to hear it!

    BTW-- I have two exams this week in A&P. One in lecture on the ANS (tonight), and one in lab on the bones (Wednesday). I'm skipping my Tues. night Psych class to study. Wish me luck!!

    Competency requires competition. The workplace in nursing definitely requires one to compete for position in the pecking order.

    Nurses eat thier young.................but the ones that are well versed in nursing school trivia are not quite as appetizing as the "C" students. Those New Grad eaters will steer clear of you if you can compete.

    One a different note, however, I was beginning to wonder if all of the A;s that are being posted aren't making others feel bad and not want to post. But I guess that is the nature of things in life, and in school. As Peeps said, "Competency requires competition". If anything, I guess it would a motivating factor for others to really try and do well.

    I had my 3rd Biology test last nigth. I was thrilled to find out I got an 88. I've had such a hard time with this class that I'll be so happy even with a C average. ( I got a 53 on my first and a 75 on my second, Hey maybe that means I'll get a 95 on my next and a 100 on the Final ......wishful thinking....)

    Just happy to post that i am still carrying a BC average (B-) this semester despite allllllll the problems that have occurred this semester.

    from separation from dh (got back together) to all 5 of the kids getting sick one after another (missing several lectures) to not having books for the classes (relying solely on lecture for information) i think i am doing pretty darn well!!!!!!!

    I don't think any of us are trying to offend anyone by posting our grades.

    I'm amazed at those who achieve high marks in A&P, as I never did, I'm not jealous of those students, that would be childish... I think we are all adults here and can help motivate ea. other.

    Students who are struggling and then suddenly get high marks is something to cheer about !
