Has anyone ever failed out of nursing school...and what were other options?? I was going to graduate this may but due to my med-surg final (i did horrible), i failed and now i cannot repeat this class until a whole YEAR! I am looking for other options but i don't even know what to do with my life as of now.
I hope i'm not alone...
is there other people that failed? and found a different career/job that they love doing??
I was thinking of a chiropractor assistant...
....or even a flight attendant (but i realize the economy is not good for me to even pursue this)
I realize that maybe i'm not cut out to be a nurse. I am a CNA already and honestly, i hate nursing homes and hate my job. I also hate how nurses are so crabby at my job.
i need someone to direct me in the right path..

Were you going to graduate as a RN or LPN? Some states like pp said will let you sit for the NCLEX-PN after 1/2 the program is done (if you were doing the RN program). Otherwise, waiting a year might be the quickest way to get your license. Excelsior is where I graduated from and I did the program in less than 1 year (but I was already a LPN when I applied with all my pre-reqs done) That program is not for everyone but if you search the distance learning board, you can get a lot of info to see if it could be for you. Good luck.
Also, Excelsior is not accepted by ALL states so you'd have to find that out too.
