I am so upset. I failed dosage and calculations for the trimester. I am feeling very hopeless because this is my first couple months of nursing school and I already failed a class. If we don't get a 90 or better, we fail, which I completely understand because I wouldn't want a nurse giving me meds that wasn't 100% sure of what she was doing. I will take the class again in February, and it will take me 6 months longer to graduate. But what I don't understand is why this was a self-taught class. This is the class that they stressed to us at orientation was going to be one of the most important classes, yet we teach ourselves? Makes no sense to me. We have a cd with a couple of practice problems from each section, then we go take the test which is very difficult. We don't even have lecture....ever. We would only go on test days. I would like to hear some input from different people. Is it like this at every school? I feel like I'm getting ripped off.
