Failed dosage calculations


I just found out that I failed the dosage calculations test in my last semester. This means I won't graduate and best case scenario will have to repeat the lab next year. I am overwhelmed and stressed. I do not know what to do. I have to pass the class portion or I am out of the program completely and as of now I am barely passing class with a 81 with two tests and a final left. We need a 80 to pass and I don't know that I can do it. Prior to this semester I did well in nursing school so I am really not sure what happened or what to do now. Any suggestions?

I know this is hard, but try to forget about your past grades. Take this time to clear your mind. Now, devote these next couple of weeks, ENTIRELY to nursing. Eat, breathe and sleep nursing. Act like your life is depending on this. If youre having difficulty with a particular subject, ask your teachers for help! Good luck!

Can you ask your professors for extra practice questions?

Your college might have extra resources such as campus tutors, so I'd look into that if you can.

I sencond what simplistic says though - try not to focus on past grades as it's only going to make you panic - if you're having issues with certain concepts, I'm sure there are videos on youtube that break everything down in a myriad of ways.

I've got to admit, I'm impressed with the amount of content on there from nurses for nursing students to devour :)

Two tests and a final left is good news - this is much better than only having a final left! ;) so do your best, study well, quiz yourself and I'm sure you'll be able to pull through!
