I'm failing both of my nursing classes. One class I'm not failing by much and the other I'm failing pretty bad. Today we had an exam which I passed (not by much). I met with my advisor and she's really pushing at me to take a leave of absence due to my home life (parents are divorcing, dad is an alcoholic who I lost contact with, and brother is a heroin addict). Yes I know others have it worse but then again my home life does get to me. I've been told by upperclassmen that if you're failing, you can still pass if you pass the final. So I would rely on the final to pass which is like playing Russian roulette. If I fail, I'm not welcome back into the program and it affects my gpa. If I take a leave of absence, I'm welcome back and it doesn't hurt me.My mom is not supportive. She says I've wasted her money if I take the loa. Which I can understand. I don't expect her to pay anymore. She doesn't understand how taking the loa will help me. Idk what to do. I feel stuck and they told me today that I have to make this decision tomorrow. Part of me wants to push through and he other wants to take the loa to get my life together and try again next fall. Any advice? Maybe someone did something similar??
