My name is Chloe and I am currently residing in Florida. I am 38 years old.
A nursing student. Just started this fall semester. And after reading some letters on the forum, I realized that I am not alone feeling confused and wanting to give up on nursing school.
Fundamentals of Nursing is the one where most of us in the class are having a difficult time studying because there are so many chapters to read and remember.
On our first test, I passed, but only with a C grade (78%). Then on our second test, like the majority of the class, I failed and only got 64%. I was crying in tears at school afterwards because I was so frustated of myself.
Is there anyone out there who can tell me what am I doing wrong? I have been studying day and night. And to score worse on the second test just really bringing me down. I am so worried now and afraid that I am not even going to pass my first year of nursing. We only have one more test to go and plus the finals. (tests are 20% each and finals is 25%) I need to pass. I don't want to quit, I can't. I really want to be a nurse. I know I will be good at it. Please advice!!!
