it certainly doesn't keep me up at night. but it does bother me when i see her, so determined, walking to class...knowing the history.
i have to agree with the others who are saying that this is none of your concern. you are not in the position to evaluate her so this is none of your business even if she told you about her situation. thinking about her performance will do nothing to help you grow in a positive direction. it will only eat away at your soul.
there is a student who is in her first semester at my school who has absolutely no critical thinking abilities. she also struggled through pre-req sciences with bs and cs and had lousy test scores.
her inability to think like a nurse was apparent in pre-nursing courses when we took science tests that required critical thinking skills. she received 40% on two exams i recall while i and others who were rejected this fall received as and bs. the only thing i could figure at the time is she got in because the weight on co-req completion is so high at my school and most of those who applied last january did not have very many courses finished.
anyway, i was angry when i thought about her or when i saw her in class after my rejection. after i realized my feelings were an indication that i took her performance personally, i stopped thinking about her negatively!!! she was and is none of my concern. i am a student, not a nursing instructor.
the only reason i know she is struggling in the nursing program this semester is because others i know who are angry she got in have kept up with her progress. i suppose if she fails some will feel justified in his/her feelings that she should have never been accepted this past fall.
i personally do not care and wish her the best. if she fails, it will do nothing for me because it is none of my business. by the way, i started thinking positive about her situation before i received my acceptance letter to start in january of 07! :spin:
