Don't think you can't be a competent nurse just because you have a C average
you know what they call a nurse with a 3.0 GPA who passes the NCLEX? (...RN)
what do they call a nurse with a 4.0 GPA who passes the NCLEX? (...RN?)
do I have any idea what my preceptors GPA was? nope.
You might also be horrified (maybe not) to find out that I'm a better student than you GPA wise (a 3.8) but I'm considering not becoming a nurse because my preceptor for my final practicum just failed me at midterm for having below average assessment skills, clinical acumen, clinical decision making (list goes on).
i actually agreed with her. Shes a great nurse. But Im' going to give myself a second shot because after I spent a week and half moping around I realised that I can't give up because one person says I'm not up to scratch (my school is transferring me to another unit and making me do a bunch of remediation in lab etc to prove my skills). I owe it to myself to see if I can reflect on what went 'sideways' and see if I can improve.
and you can too. don't give up - you deserve to chase your dreams
