need a little prayer for pharm.....

  1. Hey, all. Just got home from my pharm final and know how we all usually know instructors don't rewrite those finals from year to year?...well, they did now. The people who are retaking this fall from summer noticed that it looked nothing like their first final.....I'm a little worried...BUT 20 pts came from writing out drugs/actions/and their considerations, and 50 were MC, and I had to get 43 right...if I didn't that'd be the worse I did all semester...I can say I KNOW i got 20 for sure right on I just need 3 more out of the other 30...wish me hope and luck...will post later when I see my grade....ARRGGHHHH...I thought nurses were supposed to learn how to treat ulcers, not give them to students!!!!!

    me too. I'm so nervous right now... I needed 59/70 to pass the course.... there were 12 I was unsure on, but after looking some up, I got several of them right. So as long as I'm right on all the ones I think I am, I should be ok, but the waiting and anticipation is killing me. My heart has been racing all day, and I'm beyond nauseated. If I don't pass, I'm out of the program (I'm in 3rd of 4 semesters) and we have to move by June for SO's job transfer. So I'd have to start all over.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for all of us, L!

    I got a 62/70! YAY!!!!!

    I didn't post last night because I was just exhausted from all the stress.

    I think I scared the heck out of my 5 year old... she was sitting on the couch watching tv (our computer and desk are in the living room) and when I saw my grade online I literally screamed "Oh my god I passed!!" at the top of my lungs, and started bawling my eyes out. (I really wasn't feeling confident about it) She jumped when I yelled, poor kid.

    Anyway I know for sure we lost about 5, but I'm betting theres more, because alot of us were borderline and needed a good grade on the final to pass...

    I also heard that several people actually failed clinical.... it has been a rough semester for all, I guess.
