Hello guys. I am currently enrolled in a ASN program here in Florida. I have completed 4 classes and have 4 more to go. I have a bachelors degree in Biology already, however, this school makes nursing school so much more difficult than it has to be. I am struggling through this program. Failed OB and retaking it now. The teachers use these dumb test banks from different textbooks that contradict what my textbook says. I am getting so fed up because I put in so much effort to study and people cheating are breezing through. I am thinking about dropping out and trying a different school. What do you guys think?

Honestly, you only have four more classes to go. If you were to drop out and try a different school, you'll have to start from square one. You could also try an ABSN program since you already have a bachelors. The only options in Florida right now are four year colleges offering those degrees is the University of North Florida for students who already have a bachelor's degree and Florida Atlantic University(BSN accelerated track.) Good luck!!

 

P.S. What school are you currently attending by the way?

I would definitely stay in! I am currently in a BSN program and learned the hard way that the textbooks do NOT help me pass the tests. I have had much more success spending at least 50% of my study time just doing NCLEX style practice questions. I use quizlet, yourbestgrade and adaptive quizzing through our HESI account at school. I swear a ton of my test questions are almost word for word the same as those questions (I take a HESI exit for each subject). If I relied only on my text books, I would straight up fail. I suggest focusing on TONS of practice questions and then once you graduate go straight into an accelerated BSN program. Good luck!

We have it through our school. But I believe you may be able to purchase it through Elsevier (the owner of HESI testing). They have info on the Elsevier website. If your school utilizes HESI they may be able to give you access. If they use ATI there might be something similar I’m not aware of but that student services at your school might know.
