School is going great so far 3 test & have scored high B's on each one with 3 more to go. BUT what i reaaaalllllyyyyyy cant stand are people who dont take responsibility for their own learning, moan & groan about the how hard the test are ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY HAVENT READ THE BOOK!!!
OMG! Im in a class full of crybabies that want to be spoonfed verbatim & given the answer without doing the work!
NEW FLASH, THIS IS NURSING SCHOOL NOT ELEMENTARY, MIDDLE OR HIGH SCHOOL!
In our program the teacher test strictly from the book so if YOU DONT READ then ITS WRONG! There's this study group of about 6 & NOBODY in that group is making A's or B's, they have 1001 excuses: "thats too much to be reading", when i go home i am tired, oh "we are crammers" smh! They want to know what page, chart, paragraph, line, stanza, blah blah so it will be easier for them! Maybe im just weird & i'll be that & I know that im responsible for the content in my book wether the teacher talks about it or not! May not be on this test, but it may be on the final & im pretty sure ON THE NCLEX! Who are you going to blame for failing the nclex?
The teacher & your school? NOPE blame yourself!
Its like sending my child to school & they dont know how to spell their name, abc's & 123's! WHOSE FAULT IS THAT? MINE NOT THE TEACHER! I am my childs 1st teacher so therefore i cant get mad & take my child out that class because of sumthing I DIDNT DO DUH!
There's a BIG DIFFERENCE when you've sacrificed a date nite watching tv, going out w/your friends to study & u make a "C" or "B" & maybe even an "f" thats understandable because you may have test anxiety BUT if you did all the above & didnt pick up your book & notes until the day before & the morning of the 9 chapter test & make a 56 its the teacher's fault because the test was hard. Instead of blaming the teacher, take a look at what you did to prepare yourself. Did you read? Did you use your resources? Did you do nclex style questions? How much time did you set aside to study? If u answered "NO or "I DIDNT" then u GET OUT WHAT YOU PUT IN!
I dont know about anybodyelse BUT I KNOW AS FOR ME, nursing is serious, peoples lives will be in my hands & if they are willing to trust me to competently take care of them then im willing to take responsibility for my education & learning. The teacher puts down the foundation & its up to me to build the rest of this house by putting in the HARDWORK! Id rather work hard to get what i want that way when i do get it, i'll appreciate it & take care of it. Like my high school english teacher consistly said "YOU PLAY NOW U PAY LATER" been there, done that & PLAY TIME IS OVER!
Advice, if your having trouble with your test, go to the teacher, sit down with them, & GO OVER IT! & please for the love of sweet baby jesus,hold yourself ACCOUNTABLE & RESPONSIBLE for your EDUCATION & LEARNING. Thats all
