    I've envisioned myself graduating since day one. But after all the positive thoughts and studying and saying I can do it during the last two weeks, and then not passing, it sucks. I really don't know how I'll do it. All that positive stuff didn't work the last time, why will it work this time? I'm trying to think hopeful like, but I need to be realistic for myself and my family.

    Well, the way you're talking you already failed!

    So as a man thinketh, so is he.
    I don't know who said that, but it's good advice and I want you to start thinking like you were a nursing school graduate.

    Getting a grade of 89 is NOT impossible.


    This comes from the Bible Proverbs 23:7. There is a lot of good stuff in there.

    Maybe you aren't studying as efficiently as you could? Something I like to do is vary the ways that I study, so I'm getting the information in different ways to help it stick. I read, I write, I read out loud, and I record myself reading and play it back while I'm doing other tasks. Maybe try something new, and yes, put in lots of time but with lots of breaks too. I don't do 20 minutes, but I do 30 minutes at a time and I always get up and do something for 5-10 minutes in between. It seems like a time-waster when you're so worried, but it helps. I do something mindless, like play a game on the computer during my break, and of course stretch!

    Good luck, don't give up! Several times I've needed a certain score and gotten EXACTLY the score I needed. It seemed like a miracle but I believe God was watching over me!
