So, I'm having a rough night... I just got back my 3rd physiology exam and I'm officially failing the class (w/ only one lab practical, a final exam and lab report/quiz grade left)... I just can't get it no matter how long I study and rewrite notes, make the flash cards, follow the objectives, etc. it's just not clicking at all for me... I feel hopeless -- physiology just plain old sucks. I'm trying to find the will to keep plugging along w/ this class, but it's weighing heavy on my mind that for the first time in my academic career I'm probably going to have to retake this class in the summer... I work full time during the day so I'd be taking this four nights a week second summer session... Which will end about 2-3 weeks before I start the nursing program. My family doesn't understand and I feel like everyone thinks I'm stupid and that this dream is so far fetched... "how can you possibly think you'll make it through nursing school
if you can't even pass a physiology class (my only class this semester)," was basically in nicer words what I was getting from some of them tonight. I guess I feel the doubts, that I can actually accomplish this goal, creeping in. I'm struggling so bad w/ this class... I'm not one to just give up, but tonight it's really hard to see the positives in all this..
I guess I was just looking to see if anyone has ever been in the same boat I'm in?!? I feel really alone in having to take this class again. My morale is at an all time low... Anyone have a positive story to share about having to retake a class and it turning out o.k.??
