Who is just barely passing

  1. I had a b+ in both math and fundamentals at mid semester. I just got D's on my last math and fundamentals test now I am just passing both. The sad thing is that I could have not done anything different. I studied the notes they handed out I read the text and did over 140 NCLEX questions to practice.
    There were only 4 people that got over an 80. I am thinking about quitting and just stay as a NA and work fulltime for the vet I work for too.
    I guess I just can't do it.

    one test or two does not a nusring degree make..... Obviously something was going on to drop you from b to d.. personally I never do NCLEX questions, I prefer to spend that time studying the lecture material- because that is what my school will test on, its what is important to them. I will study for NCLEX when I get out of this purgatory.
    dont give up yet!!!!!!!!!!

    O dear...but you *are* doing it! You said you are still passing. It is still what you want?

    Why quit? Passing is passing.

    Hang in there....everyone (well, almost) in my class has expressed their doubts, fears, and feelings of being overwhelmed and undersmart....you've worked too hard to get here...

    The majority of people I have talked to have decided that they're going to have to escort us off campus before we'll give up! We have however, lost about 15% of our class thus far...if you don't stick it out, you might always live with regret...it's better to go the distance and not wonder....keep in mind those that would kill to have your place in that class...you owe it to them and yourself not to quit now...

    BTW, I haven't cracked my NCLEX book either....I've got enough to tangle with between my notes and the text!

    I'm not doing great in pharmacology. We have two more tests, and I'm just hoping I pass.

    I am in my first semester of nursing school and have 3 lecture classes.. Im pretty sure I'll have an A, a B, and a C. I guess that's not "barely making it", but then again I only study the night before a test and seem to do ok. I go to a large state university and I dont know if they're doing things wrong, but it seems the students in my program have an easier time than other programs I see here on this board!
