Failed 2 tests in second semester of nursing school:angryfire. i have 2 more tests and a final comprehensive. Please help me, i'm at a loss. just lost mom to terminal cancer yesterday. just feel really distracted. Have 3 boys 17,10, 5. Just feeling like this is not the best time to have started school. i am 34 y/o with AAS in medical lab school. Lab school was not this hard and neither was the studying. my GPA was great until nursing school, what is the problem?
