Failed First Semester

Posted

Hi Everyone,

I feel comfortable saying this here but I just failed fundamentals. I was extremely close to passing with a 75% but I missed by a few questions. I have never failed a college course before until nursing school. First semester was incredibly rough for me. I have another opportunity to retake the class which I plan on doing for fall 2022 to achieve a better grade. I know I can do it because I have the passion and drive to become a nurse but failing a nursing class makes me a failure. Has anyone failed a nursing class before? 😕

You will find that AN receives postings about nursing students and failing courses every May and December (always by a few points). You are not alone, but you need to figure out what you can do differently. You have time now to investigate study skills, test taking skills and how to deal with test anxiety.
