I am very disappointed in myself!! - page 2

I got my grades in today. Let me start this with the fact that that I had a 4.0 average until I started the Nursing Program. I now have a 3.474. I know this is petty but this was my semester that... Read More

    I would love to graduate with honors, made the Dean's list the last 2 semesters. But these were prereq's. Going into clinicals, I have decided I will still strive for excellence, but am determined to also give my kids and husband equal time and not become "the crazy lady".

    What I am saying is, so long as people eat, and the laundry gets done, and a C (yes I said C) is passing - I JUST WANT TO GET DONE!!!

    don't beat youself up, 3.0 and up is wonderful, if you have a live outside of school, than it is excellent. Keep up the good work.

    I have been told that I am one of the perfectionist people but anyway I do beat myself up for not doing it just right. I am trying real hard to put that part of me aside and just be happy with the fact that I gave it my all and did my very best. You must do this too.

    Your GPA is fantastic and with a family at home to take care of as well, you are super woman. It is easy for me to tell you this but just take a deep breath. You really did great....

    I think that is a wonderful GPA. Rember to do the best you can. We all can't be 4.0 students but that doesn't mean we all can't be 4.0 nurses!

    I can sorta understand how you feel. Your GPA is still wonderful especially with your family responsibilities that you have as well.

    We all would like to acheive high GPA's or MOST of us do anyway. All we can do is do our best and that is what matters the most in the long run. Just as long as we did our best and maintained our GPA at a reasonable range that is above passing then that is what matters.

    My cousin's wife graduated nursing school with a 2.8 and she gets so upset with me when I cry about my current GPA and how many mistakes I made in my Pre-req days. Back when I first started nursing school I had a 2.8 GPA but I will have a 3.1 by the time I graduate from nursing school. My Cousin's wife is a GOOD nurse though. She recently received a nursing award.

    Thank you all for your support, it means alot. I am the first to go to college in mine or my husband's family so there is no one here to talk to about my frustrations. I am so happy to have found this board full of wonderful people, especially since we all know what we are going through with school and working in the healthcare field. People outside of the nursing world don't really seem to "get it". Goos luck to all of you with your school and careers.
