Dear Nurse Beth,
I work as a CNA. I just failed my first semester ADN-RN by 3 percent. My instructor told me that I am great at hands-on but when it comes to applying the facts with the questions I struggle. She has also said that I could reapply to the ADN-RN program or I could due the LPN program. She feels that in the LPN program there is more class time that will help me with my struggles. I don't know what to do because I was so close to passing.
Dear Failed First Semester,
I think she may be giving you good advice and a path to success. You can always bridge from LPN to RN later (I did).
It's a big decision and inside you probably know the right answer. Trust yourself.
Best wishes and Happy Holidays.
