Last prerequisite stress!

  1. 0
    Hello! I am on my last prerequisite and it is stressing me out royally! The prerequisite is applied statistics. I study very hard for this class, use multiple books and always complete my homework on time; yet I got a 76 in my first exam. We are on probability and central limit theorem and it just feels like a haze to me. We are headed for our second exam and I am quite nervous! I m nervous in general about this class as it could ruin my chances of getting accepted into my school's BSN program if I do not do well. Does anyone have any encouraging/ uplifting sentiments they would like to share? I could really use some encouragement and support Thank you for your time and consideration=)

    I think you responded to my post about anxiety. Your very close to a B so for sure you will g et a B of you keep trying. Does your school have a tutoring lab? And well at least its not a science course. Im taking micro and got 77 on first test. I wont know what I got on the 2nd until tues. I realize I left out a lot of ibfo on one of the essay questions that I knew I just didnt mention. Im getting depressed if I dont get an A im screwed. Im so stressed now my eye has been twitching lately! !!I think we need to stop stressing im sure its making us do worse. Youll get into your program!!

    My school does have a tutoring lab, which I do go to. Which part of micro are you struggling in? Lab or lecture? Does your school have some sort of supplemental instruction after class?I got a B in micro when I took it, but my teacher was new and didn't know how or what to teach exactly. My teacher for micro even suggested we use Wikipedia as a reference source! She also interrupted the class to fix her exams while we were taking them! Don't worry, if I could survive that, you can do well in your class=) First exams are always tough, first exams are not always a good measure of the grade you will end up with=)

    Glad I came across this one! I am on my last prereq before I can apply to ASN programs, and I am taking micro! It is TOUGH for me. S much chemistry involved, and I was lucky to pass chem in the first place! My professor seems to grade well, but I even went to tutoring and had a hard time with glycolysis, Krebs Cycle, ETC, you name it. If it's any chemistry concept, I go blank! I did great in A&P 1 and 2! This is killing me. Lecture mostly. Lab is okay. I have alot of anxiety with lab because I am slow, but my lab partners are fast! I feel pretty stupid sometimes that I am just trying to figure out what they are doing while they are doing it, but tonight I pre-read the assignment and that helped because I hadn't been doing that, so I knew what to do for the most part. Sometimes I feel like if I cannot handle one micro class, how am I going to handle the actual nursing program?!! That terrifies me.

    Sorry, didn't really put your mind at ease there. You are going for your BSN, so you are in a much higher class than I would take. Do you even need a B or higher in statistics? I know that in the colleges here, at least the associate degree ones, they only look to see if you got a B or higher in the 3 science classes. A's give you more points to get in.

    Lol I don't know what im struggling in sonetimes I just feel ill prepared and im getting discouraged and frusterated. I have a baby who wakes up a bazillion times at night and its my only time to study. Shes 15 months so hopefully shell sleep through the night very soon. Im a singlr mom so no help : ( idk how id get through the nursing progran. Another stress!! I think I thought micro was gonna be so easy so I think im in kinda a shock still lol. Its a lot of work just like the other sciences : /

    My school has a tutor lab but last time I went they said thet didn't have any tutors available for micro. I know many of the tutors there last senester got into some type of program *shruggs* ill have to try back but I really can't afford to pay extra money for day care. Are you applying to other schools besides the one you currently attend or are you willing to transfer?
