EXACTLY. Some of us see the ADN or BSN as a stone on our educational path. The grades are extremely important.
In my Fundamentals class, not one A. That was really hard to take.

I got one A and two B+'s this time around, Obviously these are still good grades, but I was a bit disappointed in myself (I know full well that I truly didn't work as hard as I could have this quarter). Good luck to all of us in making our grade goals next semester, be they A, B, or C.Vent all you want! I understand!
Some of us ARE concerned with keeping a high GPA in order to get into certain grad school programs (NP, CLS, etc). I know the minimum to get into the NP program here is to have a 3.0 in all your nursing classes. I would be personally SICK if I made all C's or just barely passed. I have a right to feel that way.
Anyways, I made two A's this semester and 2 B's which were so close to an A that I was dissapointed in myself a bit, but I'm not losing sleep or anything over it.
(P.S. for heavens sake can't we all just let people vent when they need to?)
