This post is out of concern because I've been reading other posts from current nursing students and alot of it is about how hard nursing school is and how their grateful for C's on tests and so on. My question for you all (yall if from TX)is did you have problems keeping good grades while in nursing School? I start in Aug.(BSN) and know it will be a challenge but to think I'll be happy with C's is ridiculous.
No disrespect, but it's obvious that to be a CRNA you have to do well in school so are these students just "those kinds of students"that barely get by in the first place? Once again, no disrespect to anyone but lets face it there are A and B students and then there are those who are happy with just getting by.

I am not a SRNA yet, however, I am a little insulted by your post. I am one of those people who happens to be human and get a C however overall was an excellent student. My freshman year of college when I was a mere 18 years old and still didnt really know what I wanted to do, I just happened to gasp get a C..... this wasn't because I was "happy with just getting by". Nor was I ever happy to just get by. I think that the majority of the people posting on there were far from happy for getting a C... that is why they are trying to make up for it. It is quite obvious that you misunderstood the posting and what people were asking... no one thinks they can get into CRNA school with a C average.... DUHHHH That is a NO BRAINER.....
Since you have classified me as someone that just was happy to get by, for the record I have a competitive GPA (A minus range), am in STTI (a nursing honor society), and was 3rd in my nursing class.
