Reality CHECK: MOST nursing programs end up with at least 50% attrition... When I was in PN school: went from 64-39...BSN program, 100-49...some withdrew, decided to take a break, finished the rest if prereq's before returning, couldn't afford tuition, etc...it happens, however, focus on making sure if you need help, you apply other aids, suggested study books, reach out to instructors, etc...I had no problems in seeking out assistance in honing my thinking skills as a nurse...one of my instructors in PN school have me a critical thinking book to help me focus on critical thinking when I had test anxiety; and very instructor I had in my BSN program, when I laid it out there about struggling, they were able to suggest and give me honest tips on how I could fine tune, or suggest a book that could help me...my Senior Med-Surg instructor suggested a book when I struggled with select all that apply.
Just make sure if you are struggling, things are unclear, seek out your instructors. I think a lot of times people do not seek out help until its too late. Good luck and take care of yourself!!!
