Med/Surg 1 is over! We had our final today and we then had final review....I got an A. I was psyched! I did so well! My lowest grade on anything was an 86.
Afterwards the Psych/OB teachers came into address us....as 1/2 our class is moving on to OB and 1/2 to Psych.....that went fine.
THEN the Med/Surg 2 teacher came in....and it was like hello?
She basically told all us who passed to "enjoy" our time "off" in psych/OB because Med/Surg 2 follows and it's grueling. I KNOW it is.
Then she said " Those who got A's in MS1 can expect B's...those who got B's can expect C's and those who got C's can expect to repeat the course".
This really makes me angry. The Jr. class ( class before us) has had VERY low scored compared to my class ( Soph. class). They had no A's in MS 1- we had 4. Their highest B was a 85. Same thing back when they were in Fundamentals- their grades...on average...were 10+ pts below my class. Maybe they expec that of us...I dunno.
I HATE it when instructors basically say there is no way you will do well. My class has a LOT of serious students. We had 5 who missed an A by less than a tenth of a point.
It's like they basically are saying your A doesn't mean crap. You will not achieve that- so forget it. I know MS 2 is hard ( and MS 3) = but then she said basically that OB/Psych were " time off".. I think that's insulting myself.
Anywho......I have celebrated my A ) honestly never though I would do this well...but I seriously thought MS1 was like A+P 3! - we did Fluids, Electrolytes, Acid/Base, Respiratory, Endocrine, Immunity).
MS 2 is Cardiac. GI, and Musculoskeletal.
Ok I am rambling. But BOY it sucks to have an instructor say " CONGRATS on your A" and then 1/2 hr later have another tell you it doesn't mean crap.
