Med Surg Stress

Nursing Students General Students


I just took my med surg final today and I didn't feel confident. If I don't pass, I'll have to wait an entire year to take it again. I don't think it's fair that we have to wait, shouldn't it be offered in the summer time?! I just want to graduate on time, make myself and others proud and pass the NCLEX.

You're ignoring the logistics and resources needed to offer classes to accommodate the fact that you may not have passed a class. That is immature and selfish. Especially in the case of offering a class that would only be needed by those students who didn't pass a class. If you did in fact fail the course be grateful your program allows you to repeat it at all rather than just remove you from the program and you have to try and restart somewhere else.

If you went into a test unprepared but also complaining about having to wait to retake it, I think you know what you should've done...

Feel lucky that if you fail you'll be able to retake it in a year. Some people aren't so lucky and get kicked out.

"I don't think it's fair" sounds like Kindergarten.
