hello. i was just wondering if there was anyone else out there like me. i failed out of nursing school my last semester (it is a bsn program). in my program, you only get one repeat. i already used that repeat in my ob semester. i passed that class just fine the second time around. i did appeal and was denied the chance to repeat the final semester. i feel like i let my family down. my parents had already ordered graduation invitations and booked a hotel for my family to stay at. i came so close to finishing and now i'm not graduating.
you can imagine the things that are being said about me by my family. it is very frustrating to be laughed at by people who are related to you...even my grandmother makes rude comments. that's a whole different issue.
however, i have been looking at other programs and there is a possibility that i could get into another program in the fall as a senior. i really feel like nursing is the career for me. i love working with patients and doing the responsibilities of a rn. i just have doubts in the back of my mind that i may fail again. it would be nice to know that other people have been in a similar situation and made it.
I would whole heartly agree with JJOY response.
The only thing I have to add is...
Most success springs from an obstacle or failure. Like JJoy said if nursing is what you truly want to--->by all means, Got out there and get it!!! Let this motivate you not detour you. (I know that easy for me to say right now) But you are what you think, seriously.
If nursing is what you really want, start looking into another BSN program.
You may not be so happy at being successful at something you hate.
I personally would NOT...look for a LPN program. You started out in a BSN program... The only limitations you have are those accepted in your own mind. EVEN THE BEST FAIL (Do you know how many times Babe Ruth failed before he start hitting home runs?) I think you would be more prepared now for a BSN program. (Having started out in one) However, I do not know all the factors. As JJoy said self-evaluate yourself and the situation and go from there.
Good luck to you..
