B honest, how many B or C students are out there?

  1. I posted my B grades and it seems like I am the only one? Am I or are all of you B students out there made to feel ashamed of your grades? It seems lately there has been an aweful lot of talk about being an A student. I was feeling kind of down about the fact that I worked my back side off and the best I could do was a B. Please tell me I am not alone here. I know I can't be but where are all of you? I know as far as averages go in my class of 40+ students only about 8 of them were A's for the semester. Please post so I can congratulate all of the other passing grades as well!
    I will post mine. I am finally proud of my accomplishments!
    B- Nursing 102
    B A&P 2
    B+ (last but not least) Microbiology
    Anyone else want to share their sucesses here?

    Hey, I'm proud to say that I got a B in Med-Surg. I also got a B in Nursing Perspectives. I think that very few in my class ended up with A's. Anyway, I am also proud of my accomplishments! I think you did very well, you got a B+ in Micro. I really struggled thru that class myself. I failed it once and had to withdraw once, then I finally took it and got a B, I was so happy and couldn't believe that I finally passed it. I've only got one more semester to go--Peds, OB, Mental Health, then I graduate in December!!!!!

    and a smattering of A's. Just looking and it's split evenly, A's and B's. I knew I wasn't a 4.0 student, I never was. I set a realistic goal and I made it. I don't share my GPA with others, it's none of their business.

    Woo Hoo!! that is awesome! I wish I was on my last semester but I still have three to go. Can you believe your almost done? I remember crying midway through my second semester thinking to myself how incredilbly hard it was. I didn't know if I was going to make it but I did. Good luck in your final semester!

    I was wondering the reason you don't share your GPA? It sounds great to me! Good luck sounds to me your on the right track!

    Since starting nursing classes I have become a B & C student! Everyone in our school is! There have been no A's in nursing classes for at least the last 2 years, possibly longer!
    Ehh--had to edit it to say there actually might have been a couple of A's out of the N1 class that just finished--I don't know for sure. But other than them--none. They had the benefit of a massive curriculum change.

    This semester, I got one A and two B's. My A was in music appreciation (a very easy class), one B was in microbiology with a very difficult teacher, and the other B was in Psychology. My B in Psychology was due to the fact that it was my first online class and it was weird getting used to studying differently than how I do for an in-person class. Last semester, I got a C in physiology, but I was pretty happy with that. We started out with 38 people, ended up with 8 at the end of the semester, and out of those 8 only 4 passed with a C as the highest grade. I was just happy to not have to take the class over again. The most important things to me are that I pass the class with a good enough grade to get into nursing school, I learn a lot about the subject, and that I did the best I could. I used to stress myself until I was sick over grades, but really I don't think anyone refused help from a nurse based on a grade in physiology or any other class, do you?

    I don't visit here very often anymore....maybe once a week so I just saw this post.....I was a 4.0 for the first year of school....excited and all. Then I hit some of my harder pre-reqs and was thrilled to get a C in Chemistry and Algebra....since my GPA has dropped...I went into Nursing school and was thrilled to get a B in it. I have since realized....I don't have to have a 4.0 as long as I can survive school and keep my family together. We live by the motto....C=RN!!!!!

    This past semester, I got an A in Biology A&P II, A in English, but I never said what I got the semester before that!!! I had to re-take A&P II, and it caused my gpa to drop.
    I was so darn proud, that was why I posted my A, because I REALLY want this.
    I received a C in A&P online without much studying, so I challenged myself to really apply myself.
    I also took Chemistry online, received a C (due to not studying), but got an A in the lab.
    I am taking micro this summer, and I WILL get an A. My livelihood depends on this, so I am no longer messing around.

    I know that although I did really good in hs and college years ago, going back t school this time, I will not over tax myself and plan to pat myself on the back for Bs or even Cs if the course was a real hard one. The only tiime I would be hard on myself is if I know I did not try and I got a C because after all, we are there to learn.

    I was a B student in my nursing school days. Some of my friends got A's but they breathed , ate and slept nursing! I had, and have a life. Nursing is not all there is for me.

    You go girl! Those are excellent grades and you SHOULD be proud!

    There will always be other people out there who are smarter, prettier, have more money, etc You just have to be happy with what YOU do and YOUR success and not worry about others or have them somehow make you feel inadequate....cause your not!!

    a B in A&P is great cause I know soooo many people at my school who FLUNKED out of that class!!
