Hello everyone! I am making a post to have someone hopefully reach out that had or is having similar experience as me at the moment. Got my midterm grade back...unfortunately I failed. I knew my information, but the way the questions are worded really throws me off. I have 2 more tests to take for the semester, but as of now im failing the course by a couple of points. I am so hoping to pull it back up with the next two exams, but I am extremely worried and nervous.... the pressure certainly is overwhelming. Anyone else have the experience where they were failing the semester mid-way through, and was able to pull it up again and pass the course before the semester ended? Some advice and encouraging stories would totally make me feel better and a little less alone...my close clsssmates seem to be doing pretty good which makes me kinda feel like a loser. Also, if anyone has some study tips that worked for them you guys can share with me, that would be awesome! Thank you so much for reading!

Moved to Nursing Student Assistance forum. 

For tips, you might browse through the threads in this area, or do a search (upper right-hand corner) for Nursing School Study Tips, or something similar.

Hang in there, and best to you!

The one suggestion I can give is relatively simple (maybe 2 suggestions). Review you responses to the questions on the exam and identify the similarities and your answers. Ask yourself if you are reading to much into the questions (over thinking things). Are you able to pull from your clinical patient experiences and us that real life "I did scenario" a personal example deal with my fall down dead experience during my NCLEX, I ended up using all of my pencils to visualize how to teach a patient to use crutches. I can laugh at that now but I new I had failed. I didn't and now I am sharing with some one who has what it takes to join me as a RN. Best of everything, I believe in you!

I suggest reaching out to your instructors.

When you study for tests, do you do the practice NCLEX style questions?  They are really helpful.
