I was to graduate this May 2009 but technically wouldn't be done until the end of july because we still had to do OB/ped's. I had my cap and gown ready to go, sent out invites for my graduation...everything. I took my final in med-surg2 around the end of April and the final dropped me 6 points. Since it dropped me 6 points, I failed the course. I cried for about a week straight, was depressed, felt so down, felt stupid, etc etc etc. I had to tell my family/relatives, friends that I am no longer graduating.....---> believe me, that was hard. I just wish the school wouldn't have done all that, making me feel like i was FOR SURE to graduate. ugh. BUT anyways, I thought about this long and hard about my future. I wouldn't be able to retake Med-surg2 until NEXT MARCH. . . long time. I was thinking of changing my whole major..I was also thinking about just not going back to school..or else I was thinking of just waiting and waiting and waiting until next march comes around to retake it AGAIN. I've been really thinking, and I finally decided that I'm going to wait it out and retake the course next march of 2010. It seems so long away but I figured I was only 2-3 months away from being an LPN. Why quit altogether when I spent so much work and time into studying and going to class?? Should I do this even though I practically have to wait a year?? or should I just switch my major and do something else? I am young still, only 21 years old. Sometimes though I feel like I'm too dumb to even do this.
--->heads up people (I had failed Med-Surg1 too but could retake it right away and I passed. Now it's just the Med-Surg2 part that I have to retake again.) Although, Med-Surg is a hard class. . . but maybe since I failed med surg 1 before and now I failed med-surg 2...maybe that's a sign that I can't be a Nurse. I NEED ADVICE. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT. THANK YOU ALL.
