I want to be like you when I grow up, I see there's no excuse for anyone to not strive and go above & beyond in Nursing school! I passed my 1st pharm test last week with an 85!...I was upset at first as this is barely a B in my program, but i realized its the first exam & I need to show so pride in my work...Thanks for this thread!

Yes!! Right?! Why be there if you aren't able to give 110%?! Some of my classmates are just hoping to pass, which a 77 in every single class. A few already have had to repeat classes, we are only going into our second quarter. Many don't have a full time job to worry about, or a family, or any responsibilities really other than school. NO EXCUSE for struggling to pass! You are either not dedicated enough or not able to hack it at this point in your life. What I tell everyone to keep in mind is that our jobs WILL hold lives in the balance, literally, would you want a nurse that just squeaked by in school caring for you?? I want to be able to treat my patients knowing that I gave all I had to make sure I was a competant, knowledgeable nurse. :twocents:

Keep up the good work!!

I'm in first semester LPN-RN transition. In our process/assessment class our first exam included a care plan. I scored 34.5 out of 35 points :)

While I understand that sentiment, at the same time, some people just aren't good test takers, so they might know the content better than someone who got a better grade or might be able to apply it better, but it doesn't reflect on their grades. I know that in my program tests account for 96% of your grade, so if you aren't a good test taker, you won't have good grades even if you know the content like the back of your hand and apply it like lotion!

Got a 90% on my first Concepts exam last week.

8 weeks in and I have an A average in each of my 3 nursing courses so far and my 1 non nursing course as well. Im praying that I can finish off the semester with these same grades.

Okay, I'll chime in:

I earned a 97% on my first exam in my health maintenance class.

BUT what I'm really proud of: I held the bucket for a patient yesterday while she threw up into it...and I didn't get sick!! If you asked me 5 weeks ago how I'd react to watching someone throw up, I would've told you that I would, in turn, lose it. I'm amazed that it didn't phase me! It's one of those small things that reinforces my decision to go into nursing! :coollook:
