    I don't mean to burst anyone's bubble but the first module is a breeze. There's a point in nursing school where 4.0 students stop caring about their grades and just feel lucky they passed. If you can pass med surge with NO fails, holy crap, you certainly have brag rights! But really, tests and quizzes aren't just about knowing the material. A lot of the time, they're all situational questions and require critical thinking. The reason why they quiz and test you so much is because they want you to learn test taking strategies. Once you've got that down and know how to answer correctly - even if you don't know the answer - then that's when you know you're ready for the NCLEX

    Even so---I have gotten two 100's when people have gotten grades in the 40's. We even have had people cry in class and we are just about to start our third week...that says something. For some people, this isn't easy, maybe for you it was, but for others it isn't. I don't expect to maintain a 4.0 in nursing school. I know there will be things I just do not quite understand, or times I am too tired to focus and I will answer incorrectly, I'm just sick of people complaining about their grades when they can change the outcome.

    my dear u are there for urself! let those peeps who complain of grades fight their own battles because the ball is in their court. they have two choices! either to study hard and get good grades or do the opposite and get flopped! don't sweat the small stuff.
