Hey everyone - just wanted to vent a little bit and tell you all how my second week has been going. We started actual classes last Friday, Monday we had two quizzes, yesterday we had one quiz, today we had a test and a quiz and tomorrow we have a test. We had to read seven chapters this week with a bunch of homework problems.
When they say you will be busy in nursing school, they mean it!
On the bright side, I took my first A&P test today and got a 100!
I know it will only get harder so I am glad I did good on the "basics". I also had to work at the pharmacy this week. I have class M-F 8-2:30 and Monday I worked 3-8 and yesterday I worked 3:30-8. Tonight I have off (thank goodness! I have to get ahead in my reading and homework) then tomorrow I work 4-8 and then Saturday 9-1.
Now time for my small venting...
I continue to be amazed at the students in my class who just do not seem to care about school. WHY ARE YOU HERE?!
We had a girl today announce to the teacher that she "doesn't like having a test one day and then a test the next day as well." The instructors response was "get over it".
Like honestly what did you think you were signing on for? We are in a 10 month LPN program! Once we get going we will most likely have a test everyday! And I just don't get it. The quizzes are to show you what you don't know and what you should study. Why would you not study? If you are getting 7 wrong on a 15 question quiz...it's a good indication of what you do and do not know!
I'm sorry but I have been working my butt off studying and trying to stay ahead and for someone to complain about their grades and get mad when they don't study and don't read is just insane. I'm sorry for the vent, but I just had to get it out.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Like if you don't like your grades then do something about it! Alright, well time to get back to work and to hit the books!
