Failed first exam :(

So I’ve failed my first exam since starting my program. Maternal/pediatrics with a 68. It was by far the hardest thing for me to deal with. I’m use to getting 90s and above but I guess this was just on a whole other level itself. At once point I thought I should drop out, questioning if I was good enough. I know that may seem dramatic but I truly thought of it. I’ve had a lot of nurse friends hype me up and tell me it’s not the end of the world. It’s been very hard to deal with but I’m hoping to push past it. Once that self doubt creeps in it shard to shake...

Don't be too hard on yourself. I have noticed with my classmates and I that we do the poorest on our first test of the class. You never know how the first test will be so it's hard. Once you get used to your instructors testing style your grades will get better and better. I have gotten a few test grades in the 60s!
