It is my fourth week of nursing school and we had our first tests in Fundamentals, Health Assessment, and Skills back-to-back Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
I made a 78 on the Fundamentals exam, an 82 on the Health Assessment, and 84 on my Skills exam. I have been doing well in my skills check-offs.
In my school, a 75 is passing in all classes. I have studied A LOT for these tests by reading the material, reading lecture outlines, and doing study guides. I would really like to make only A's and B's.
I am pretty darn discouraged right now.
There are about 35 of us total in the program and I am the youngest one
at 19 years old.
Almost everyone are nontraditional students or a couple years older than me.
I feel very out of place and overwhelmed because everything is completely new to me and it seems like EVERYONE, even the ones closest to my age, have been around doctors and nurses or have parents who are in the medical field.
I would absolutely love it if someone could send some words of encouragement my way. I love this site and have gone through many posts about first semester...to those of you who make A's and B's----BE HAPPY
I would give anything to figure out what I'm doing wrong to be making these lower grades.
