I suggest you meet with your instructor to see what they advise you to do to help improve your studying techniques. It IS possible but you can not keep using the methods that you have been using.

I studied my ass off and it paid off, you just have to apply yourselfI dont think its possible I will get a 96 on my final

You've had a lot of good advice in this and other fora, and it's up to you. There are people at school who will tutor you, diagnose any learning disability you have, help you understand where your misconceptions lie, drill you on med arithmetic, whatever you need. But this is college. Unlike high school, the student has to make the first move. The faculty will not have your parents coming after them if you do poorly. YOU have to get help. Ask your faculty what they recommend, and DO IT.
My daughter the professor (not of nursing) had this haiku up on her office door:
Once again, no one comes in.
Perhaps they'll all fail.
Do not be that student. If you are not ready to put the extra time into it that nursing school requires of you, take a year or two off. There is no shame in that. Many of us have done that and come back refreshed and prepared to give it a better go. Your call, though.
