Hi Nurse Beth!! Just like many others on allnurses.com, I need some guidance/advice. In December of 2014, I finished my last 3 courses at a BSN program. In order to fully complete the program, it is required to pass an exit exam. After several attempts, I was still unsuccessful. The last exam I took, I scored a 72.56%. The school required a 74% to pass. At that time, I was required to re-enroll for the two senior semesters of the program. Due to financial reasons, I was not able to do this. I finally saved enough money and enrolled in the first senior semester (two Med Surg Courses) August of 2017. That semester I applied myself more than ever in the past. It was hard due to the time that had lapsed since I had been in school. Unfortunately, I failed both either courses and was dismissed from the program. Now I am stuck with $65,000 plus in student loan debt with nothing to show. I’ve been a medic in the Army national Guard for 19 years with two overseas tours under my belt. It’s not that I didn’t know the material, I’m not a good standardized test taker. I am great with hands-on skills. It all is just so depressing, and I feel hopeless. Any guidance/advice would be wonderful. I just don’t know what to do. Thank you in advance!!
