HEY! You just commented mine, and I came across yours! =) Alrighty, so, First, I would ask your teacher if you can schedule a meeting. IDK if you have a skills class where you learn how to do b/p, pulse, resp. rates, etc. I do, but if not, your teacher should be willing to help you! Do not listen to the people saying you are not ready!!!! If you weren't ready, the nursing school would have recommended you certain classes and told you to re-apply for next year! So, with that said, I would ask your teacher to schedule a meeting to just go over basic terms and certain things you do not understand. If possible, you could even write them down and write a thread on here asking what they mean! I know a few things on my first test that I had no idea what the question was talking about, so I remembered the words and wrote them down after the test and looked them up on google. But, if your having trouble with things, ask your teacher! I cannot stress that enough! My teacher tuitors me, andI understand things much better now, still not perfectly, but it's a start.
And, if your teacher doesn't want to help, I would consider switching schools. Because YOU are paying for this education, and you (and every other student), are helping pay for you teachers saleries...their suppose to help. So, I would schedule a meeting. And, I realized that to the older adults on here, if you say anything about nursing school and your right out of high school, they consider you "winey"...IGNORE IT. =)
You can do it!!!!!!! BE STRONG!!! PRAY AND ASK THE LORD FOR GUIDANCE!!!
