Just a rant but I recently started a bridge LVN to ADN and started off so poorly!! It's only been 3 weeks and just had the first exam yesterday and got a 74%-passing is 75% no less!! To top it off today I was sent home from clinical because I've lost my I.D. Badge! My instructor said it was policy and I understand but damm what are the odds!! I have an appointment with the instructor next week to go over my exam result and missed clinical rotation. Our program allows no more than 16 hours of clinical missed and/or 6 hours of lecture. Instructor mentioned they will have to figure out what I have to do to make up the hours. I feel so dumb and discouraged already. I was on top of everything in my LVN program and had passed with straight A's. It was hard enough to get accepted and now I'm struggling already. It's advanced placement since I'm an LVN and only have 9 weeks left of this semester (3 out of 4) and had been studying like crazy and got a poor grade. Any tips to cope/survive/study? I took time off work for this program and feel like a dummy not being able to utilize my time efficiently and grasp important aspects of the material. I read all the chapters and study patho but when I took my exam there would be questions where I would second guess myself and I know to use ABCs and Maslows.
