Well I did it. I passed my first semester of nursing school. I am in a 2 year ADN program. I really studied and had problems in my Foundations class all semester long. I got a 74,74,82,74,76. My final grade was 77.95, which they rounded up to 78%.78% is needed to pass at my school. I passed but I don't feel that good. I almost want to cry. I barely made it. Many of my classmates feel I should be happy,and just do better next time. I will say that my particular program is not very supportive,and is very unorganized. mow back to me. I will admit I was lazy at times,but for the most part I studied and read the required readings. We got near the end and we got into bowel and urinary elimination and pain. These were very challenging, One particular teacher was very hard. Alot of nursing diagnosis questions which we didn't really see all semester. I am very upset and a little discouraged. I know I really want to be a nurse,and I am detemined to do it. I have had a rough past,but a promissing future. I am a above the knee amputee and osteo sarcoma survivor. I feel like I have to do this for me,and the patients I will oneday take care of. I am scared, and would love any remarks anyone may have positive or negative. Of course people fail,but I do not want to be the one to fail.
