Quote from Encephala
I have been feeling very depressed lately due to personal and school related stressors. I didn't go to school today but found out that a classmate (the only one I trust and am close to since we began) failed out. She has to be remediated.
I feel even more aweful now. She didn't fail by some grossly deficient margin....just by like 2 points. Sometimes I wonder if Nursing School is just a "survival of the fittest" obstacle course or if there is some kind of financial motive for these schools. Sometimes it all gets so overwhelming. I didn't get my test scores back (due to absence) don't know if I will join her in remediation..........will let you guys know.
How do you guys cope with such devastating blows?
Mixed emotions :angryfire :uhoh21:
I totally agree with you. Nursing school is tough and you know why you could get in? You are the best of the best!!!
So don't give up.
At first, I thought I am the only one who always feel that this is a "survival game". But after reading what you said, I feel much much better about myself cuz' I am not the only one out there struggling.
I was so worry that my buddy would not pass our last semester too but luckily she made it. I am not doing that well either. I was a 4.0 student and now I am at 3.5....
Well, I am thinking to myself,"it is okay to be a 3.5 as long as I know what I am doing and I can provide the best care to my patients".
Who cares if I am a 3.0 or 4.0 when I become a nurse???? Some of the test questions that our instructors had for us are ambiguous and tricky, if I have got the wrong answer, it doesn't mean that I don't know what I have studied, right?
Good luck and hang in there.
I did the same thing that you did too, I missed two days of school last semester b/c I got so frustrated with my instructor!!!! :chuckle
