I am a sophomore at LSU. Over a two-year span , i've failed four classes. My first semester, i was pregnant and got put on bed rest for two months and my doctor specifically told me i couldn't go anywhere, not even school; so i failed two out of five classes. My third semester i failed anatomy and physiology because i missed too many days and i got behind. my daughter got sick a lot . I didn't have any friends or family that could watch her when she couldn't go to daycare which meant i missed a lot of class. Now i feel like i am failing chemistry. Ive talked to the instructor and go to tutoring, but i am just not getting it. I have a passion for nursing and i want to be one so bad. I feel like i will never be excepted into the nursing program because I've failed four classes total. I have had a hard time this semester, dealing with Personal issues- ( my mother is terminally ill) i am only 21 but i feel as i am never going to accomplish my dreams. I work so hard and i know i am not stupid, i know i can do this! but i don't want to spend all my time on something that i cant even get into. Does anyone have any experience with this? Or any advice?
The classes that i have failed, I retook them and made A's. I have never failed the same class twice and i am already in the 2 year program. My school won't allow you to apply for the 4 year until you have an RN degree. It may seem like i am making "excuses" but I am not. I don't WANT to miss class, i don't "Skip" either. If my child is sick and the daycare won't allow her to come, then i have to stay home with her; there is no other option. Anyone that has ever had a child in daycare, knows that when they first start, they get sick all the time! She was hospitalized twice for bronchitis and what that means, is that i can't go to school ( she is only 1). my school requires a 2.5 gpa to get into clinicals and at least a 75% on the HESI exam. I have met both requirements, but i still feel as if they won't even look at my application because i failed 3 ( possibly 4) pre-reqs
