Hello everyone. I am currently a nursing student. (RN) Last semester, I failed med surge by less than one point. I was upset at first but then resigned myself to retaking the class and felt it may even help me to become a better nurse. The next semester, I began med surge again. I took the required dosage and calculations test and did not pass the first time. The student is only allowed to take it two times and if you fail it the second time you fail the class. Well, shockingly, I failed the dosage test for the second time. Since that was considered failing med surge twice, I was no longer in the RN program. The staff recommended that I write a letter to the director of nursing asking for a letter of appeal in order to attempt med surge a third time, therefore allowing me back in to the RN program. I did just that and was accepted back in. Needless to say I was very happy and I have been working on my dosage. I have high anxiety anyway when it comes to tests and now that I will be taking med surge once again in the next few weeks, I am scared to death. My confidence level is very low. I have told very few people including my family. I suppose I am ashamed and embarrassed. Are there any words of advice or comfort anyone can give me?
