    We have had several posts by this person and they have all been quite negative. If you search you will find some that warranted members suggesting therapy and professional help. I am not even sure how this person could have gone from one school to another in such a short period of time. Her last post with her last set of headaches was only a couple of months ago...

    Sorry for being realistic, but if this is a true story and you are really 3rd in your class, the skills are not that much harder as a matter of fact compared to studying for lecture they are quite simple...By the way how many people are in your class??? 3 ???

    If you are that bad at it...than your professors did you and most importantly your patients a favor. Like it has been said, nursing is not for everyone...time to move on with all your sadness ...Perhaps you should think more positively about your next career choice.

    Once again to all my friends out there, sorry for saying it like I see it.

    Have a great day, dave :chuckle

    I've been avoiding this thread, for the reasons you mention. With how difficult it is to get into nursing school, exactly how DOES one go from one school to another, like changing socks? If anyone does a search on posts done by this person, NOTHING adds up.

    It does not sound like nursing is for you. I certainly admire your ability to get in to so many nursing programs, so easily.

    Thank you Dave! I said something similar in response to her drug calculations thread but my post was deleted, so I figured I should be more positive this time lol. Things don't add up, and when asking questions about it we never get answers. So I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and just say I think she's making the right choice by stepping back and taking a break from nursing school.

    At the risk of being flamed, I just want to say just because we want to be something or think we can do a certain job doesn't mean we can. Heck, I think I could strut a catwalk with Cindy and Naomi but my height and weight won't even give me a look in...

    Prince Charles wound up in a pile of horse doo the other month for saying something similar about how society lets people think they can achieve more than they can realisticaly do...

    So, Sad should remember she at least got the chance to try and not make it it, more than a load of would be nurses have had the chance to. How many people don't make it past the selection process that might make great nurses...

    So, I'm off to do some stretching exercises and try to plot my way into the next Chanel show.....

    It felt very bad when an instructor passed me up from a check off because I did not perform a skill right on the first attempt. Also, a different instructor told me today, that I am struggling. The funny thing about it, is that I know I can do these skills competently if it was in a different environment...I could not take how the instructors were treating me so I decided to throw in the towel to save my dignity.. I hope I made the right choice.. I was behind in two check offs and everyone else was finished..
    The thing with nursing is that you need to be able to perform in all kinds of environments. Good luck to you! I hope you find a career that you will love and excel in.

    Sad,
    I have 3 words for you "Don't GIVE UP!!!"....... if being a nurse is your destiny...quitting is not an option. I do know how you feel, last semester I worked sooooo hard (as we all do)...I passed the Clinical and Lab. Skills portion of the course but I didn't pass the Lecture/Theory portion...by 2 measly points. I too can't understand why that happened, I know this stuff backwards and forwards....I do know one thing....I am not going to give, I am going to become a RN and a Neonatal NP.....I will, I will, I will....and this is how you should feel. Maybe it's the way the program is being run, I don't know....but you can definitely do it...you made it this far....you can make it the rest of the way.

    Hugs,
    Fatima

    In the Fall 2004 semester, I failed my hospital clinical site and recieved a failing grade. I was in the first semester. In the Spring 2005 semester, I went to a new nursing school hoping for a fresh start. In the past 2 weeks I did extremly well in my theory exams. I am one of the top 3 students in grades BUT in my lab check offs, I am behind too much and I am just too far gone to catch up. Instructors are looking at me as incompetent/weeding me out. It is common for them to do that and it hurts me to see that.

    I know that you are thinking, I am just a failing student and I am a casuality but you know failing students do try to be a nurse but it just does not happen for some reason...In the Fall 2004 semester, I gave it my best vert best effort and still failed...This semester, I tried also but things did not work out right..

    Good bye all.. And when you seeing missing students in your class, think well of them because some of them gave it their best effort like me but it just did not work out..

    sometimes we need to decide what we really want in our lives...maybe if you took it one step at a time you might achieve a better result
    take a cna course..you might be already qualifed for certification...go from there tp lpn...if you are now in a class with experienced hospital workers you are going to be struggling just to stay even and eventually you will lag behind
    while you are not in school study on your own A&P--PHARMACY--NUTRITION--MED TERMS...anything that you can study without going to class..when you are ready to go back to the college level you will be more prepared and more confident in yourself

    Wow, I just read all of her posts and Wow. Yeah. Thank God there are instructors who won't pass you if you're incompetant.

    And if I ever become this freakin' depressed about nursing, I think I need to change my job! I'm excited to be learning all this stuff! And I do agree that this is most likely a troll

    A Victim? When you are past up on skill check-off, what do you mean? in my school you have 3 chances to pass that skill or you are out of the program. Is it like that for you. I know that in my school there are instructors that WILL weed you out if they desire to do so. I fully believe that we can make or break your self in nursing school. But there are many instructors that feel that a person may not be a good nurse and weed that person out. It has happened at my school more than 6 times. Of course, we have had many students drop out. I have had a instructor tell me that I was too sensitive and I need to get 'hard' in order to be a great nurse. Every time we have an exam, I seem to do poorly in her class but great in all the others. And we are not allowed to see our exams... there has to be something fishy about my program.

    You're not allowed to see your exam? Most schools do have a policy on that. At ours when can make an appt. to review it with an instructor. After that, they are held for 3 weeks and then put through the shredder. I'd check your school's policy!
