    Why do ppl keep on insisting that I was minimizing her feelings. Thats how I felt about how she said she didnt like her grade. I stated my opinion straight to the point, plain and simple. How is that minimizing? I was just trying to be honest. There is a right time to be empathetic and a right time to be honest. How terrible is it to have an A-, in nursing school? ...seriously! I dont even know of anybody who had an A in RN school, do u? So you have to understand how a post like her's can come off as a lil silly, a lil childish and even be a lil arrogant.

    What you might think of "this silly" might be a disappointing situation to someone else. No need to minimize how someone else is feeling.
    So let her sweat an A to an A minus grade, as opposed to helping her put things into perspective? Not minimizing nobody's feelings...

    So youre saying youre short of 1 semester? Can you take the LPN boards if thats the case? Assuming that you are completely well of that illness and physically capable of taking care of pts. At least its something rather than completely wasting your nursing education.And then maybe continue on becoming an RN eventually when they see you "fit" to take the pressures of nursing school.

    I dont know of any nursing school that will allow you to transfer between programs. Never heard of a nursing class done over the summer. Im quite confused, you want to transfer programs and then leave after the summer for your ICU job and master's degree?

    Michelle, I know the feeling. I have gotten one B on a test and I cried. I just knew that I could have done better. It felt good to get it out and then I was able to move on.

    To those of you who are criticizing her for her feelings of disappointment, how about showing a little empathy? You don't have to have the same standards as she does to understand disappointment and to acknowledge it. Part of being a nurse is going to be showing that empathy, whether it is something you yourself would get worked up over or not.
    Empathy? for A-... in nursing school??? tell me ur not serious!

    there is nothing to empathize there. why she is disappointed is beyond me. well she is in fundamentals, so...:uhoh21:

    Oh, I know what you mean. In my nursing program we don't get plus/minus grades but you need a 92 for an A and I can tell you if I had missed that by such a close margin I would have been doing the same thing you are... if only I'd answered one more question right!!!! But I don't think many nursing programs grade on the plus/minus system so I don't think people are really realizing that you have been given a lower GRADE... they're just hearing A- vs A and thinking, who cares? They're not completely understanding. Had you come here venting because you were that close to an A and took a B people would have been very sympathetic, what you're talking about is really kind of the same thing, they just don't realize it because they don't have the same grading system you do. At least that's my on-the-cheap-and-un- degreed-psychoanalysis of a bunch of people I've never met... lol.
    I have the same grading system. Why cant ppl be happy that they just passed? And why is it that ppl brag their grades here? Worse, complain about a good grade! Isnt it enough they announced it all over their school and they have to do it here as well? I dont see the purpose for it? How can they have the heart to announce their A's(or complain) when so many ppl in here are dying just to pass their classes? Dont mean to sound like a ****** to you Michelle, but come on?!

    (sorry i made a mistake)

    what about:
    1. risk for fluid volume deficit r/t possible maternal hemorrhage (also you could use r/t presence of aminiotic fluid in maternal circulation)
    2. fear r/t threat of fetal death aeb verbalizations of specific concerns
    3. risk for impaired fetal gas exchange r/t altered uroplacental O2 transfer (risk for abruptio placenta)

    mother may also be at risk for impaired gas exchange r/t presence of aminiotic fluid in maternal circulation (amniotic fluid embolism)
    textbook shd give u interventions how to prevent these complications. good luck!

    I am going to disagree. Every nursing program is different. There are good, knowledgeable teachers and there are bad ones. I believe that no matter how intelligent a person is, that person will need guidance from a nursing professor no matter what. I mean what are going to school for, attending classes, if it all just boils down to reading the book. Anybody can read a book but its not gonna help you jack in nclex. My advice is, find nursing students in both schools, attend an open house for the nursing dept, ask the students questions like are they happy about their program, their teachers and what teaching style do they implement. do they read off the ppt or do they take time to explain impt core concepts. how are the students performing in the hesi or nln every semester. Then pick the school that you feel will teach and train you to be a good nurse. It makes a whole world of difference finding the right nursing program and teachers!. In any kind of setting, how can you expect somebody to become brilliant if she was taught poorly? Does that make sense?
