Completed 1st semester

  1. 0
    I just completed my fist semester of my LPN program. I took fundamentals, pharm, and health assessment, and came out with straight B's. I know that I should be happy but I feel so disappointed in myself. I know B's are usually considered good, but are they good enough in nursing school? I guess I just need some encouragement!

    My PN instructor told us that some of the BEST nurses are B/C students, so I commend you on achieving those Bs and I know you are discouraged now, but many didn't make it as far as you did...Keep up the Great work.

    I'm sure you put in a lot of time and effort and did the absolute best you could. I'm only in 2 weeks and I already found out for myself that nursing school is not easy at all, but nothing worth having comes easy! At that, I also commend you on making it through the first semester and with B's to add!

    Thank you! It is a very tough program and I should be happy with how far I've come! It has been a hard semester, but the hard work did pay off! There are quite a few people in my class who won't be in med-surg next semester. It does prove how difficult it can be. Good luck to you on starting the program!

    I know exactly how you feel I hate B's and strive for A's last sememster I got all A's and 1 B (89) so close to an A but I took it and ran. I understand that you work so hard and would like an A BUT, B's are good and passing and are better than C's and failing, B= Nurse, when you graduate, you will not be thinking about your B's and or grades, the only thing that will matter is passing your boards AND, the best nurses and B and C students so just think about those things good luck

    When I was in LPN school B's where a luxury when the final was 40 percent of your total grade. Be glad and rejoice in it HUGS!

    Bs are totally fine. What really matters is passing your NCLEX. As in my program are pretty hard to attain at 94.5%

    You are doing great! A nurses and C nurses with the same degree out of school both make great money! Remember that
