    Congrats Amberc and remember "B" is considered above average. I am also finishing up this semester and I will be glad when it is over. The college I am in for my practical nursing takes alot of work to get and "A". You need a 94% to achieve it , so needless to say I will be happy with a "B".

    I am still doing my pre-reqs and our finals are up too. I am so tired i could cry. I say thinking positive is the best remedy. Just know that it will son be over. Do your best because your best can't get any better. I wish you lots of luck. I know when I get there I will need it too.

    OK - Here are the Details ---Senior Level

    Hesi got canceled tommorow because of impending snow....

    Peds Final on Monday at 7am, 80 questions, can miss 17 questions to pull out a C as final grade for Class. If I do better I will get a C+, Looking to do better.

    Next Med Surg Final - Thursday at 9am - 87 average, 10 point cushion to pass the class. Looking to maintain B. 75 questions.

    Track Record - Have never failed a final in four year history. Record of doing well. Something about studying alot of information all at once seems to help me. Looking forward to one more semester then the big NCLEX!

    I am planning on drinking more than one after finals thursday night. Maybe that's why its hard to remember all that stuff year after year.....

    And I agree with the poster who said that patient's don't know if you got an A or a C on your grades, It's only for your own big head....I mean really, Isn't that why they made the NCLEX pass/fail? hb06

    No, I don't really feel like getting an A or a C is for my own big head. I am trying to maintain my grades because I would like to compete for a spot in an immersion program that only takes 2-3 students. If my grades are C's I won't have a chance. Now as far as having an RN after my name when all is said and done, an A or C doesn't matter. But for me, right now it does.

    Do I know where you are coming from or what!?! My last final was Wednesday and it was the day from you know where. It was awful. I went home and slept, t hen the next day I spent the entire day not talking to anyone and just watching the tv!

    I also have my final tomorrow morning in Fundamentals. I am between studying, taking naps, watching TV, checking my emails, checking this website...I have a 92% overall and I got a B in Pharm (tough course, especially with being a shorterm class)...All throughout the semester I was so worried about getting behind on my studies that I didn't go out and have fun. Now that finals are here...I'm slacking off. I'll be satisfied with a B. I'm just glad that this class is finally over! (Lots of frustration from the part of the instructors being so disorganized with their material). Good luck everybody with your finals!
