    Making good grades in nursing school (as well as most other disciplines) is about knowing how to study rather than being smart. Being "smart" helps, I'm sure, but I've seen some awfully flaky people who slipped through the cracks of nursing school. I'm likely one of them. B average student here. Sorry to sound cliche, but it is the truth: you get out of it what you put in it. I worked hard for what I got but I feel I could have done better, though considering I was working and raising a family I can't complain.

    And a B will pass you the same as an A will. Don't try to be too philosophical and start second guessing yourself, just plow in and do it. Jump in with all fours, which is what I did. You have to become somewhat obsessed with nursing school to get through and do well, because you will devote a big part of your life to it.
