I'm in my last semester of my Nursing program at Seneca, PNC520 and its very stressful and tiring and on top of that I need to put in 400 hours of clinical. Yesterday we had a comprehensive test that I've been studying for, for 1 months and the passing grade was 75, and I got a 68, but since more than majority of the people failed, they remarked the test and took out a couple of questions, and I ended up with a 72, still not a pass.....to pass the course I need to get a 75 on the next test, which is August 14th, so that gives me 4 weeks to prepare, but I feel so tired and feel like I lost motivation.....have you ever failed a test and lost motivation from it? how did you pull through and do good the next time?

What helped me in the program was going to see all my tests whether I did good or bad so that I can see the questions I got wrong and figure out why I got them wrong. Some profs are nice enough to explain why certain answers are more correct than others. Also a lot of people just study or read the context but they don't bother with the questions. I would suggest to start doing the questions if you haven't already or if you do do questions, you probably just need a bit more practice questions.

In my third semester of the rpn program I was really struggling to stay motivated. I considered dropping out. I know you're probably pretty tired but the end is in sight.

I failed my programs exit test the first time I wrote it. It's disappointing but you've made it this far and if you can do that you can finish.

The 400 hours can be really draining. I did not get along with my preceptor at all. Every day I went to my placement was torture. You'll push through because you've already put in so much effort.
