    Failed nursing school(technically)

    Hi everyone, I have been reading posts and things about students failing nursing school. Very few I have noticed win appeals or have a leg to stand on when they don’t take accountability for their own failures as well. I failed my clinical portion of OB/Peds but passed theory. At the same time we took med/surg. 16 weeks and two courses so 8 weeks a piece. Now for clinicals you have to get a 2.0 to pass. Most of the areas they grade you in the highest you can receive is a 2. There are five areas you can receive a 3. It’s approximately 35 areas you are graded on all but 5 have the possibility of getting a 2. I failed with a 1.96. I had a zero one day for the “appearance” portion. My stethoscope broke in clinical. Yep! And yes the instructor knew when it broke and the other students knew as well because people saw me pull it out of the case and the diaphragm just flopped off. So I borrowed another students and we agreed to share, as I wasn’t going to take the staffs because they might’ve needed it. The instructor never told me it was an issue and no feedback was given on what I was suppose to do. We were suppose to be graded on 8 weeks but only were graded on 7. Why? I still do not know. I’ve asked and the only answer I received was “that’s the way your clinicals fell into certain dates” which still doesn’t make sense to me. (Side note:I have adhd so I’m sorry if this is all over the place. I tend to babble and don’t put things in good order.) After the grades were “finalized” as my teacher told me they would stand, they went in and changed it from a 1.96 to a 1.95. They were aware I had filed an appeal. I emailed the instructor and asked why my grade had changed. She stated the other teacher forgot to add something in. She told me the approximate place and it wasn’t changed. I showed her this as I screenshot everything prior to use for my appeal. The next day my grade changed again to a 1.96 without explanation. As of now the president has issued a recommendation to let me continue to my lpn portion along with the 6 other students that failed this semester. All the same all failed ob but they failed theory by 0.68 at lowest to 1 percent. We all have filed appeals. Our program started with 27 and technically are down to 6. The other students submitted their appeals and I can’t speak for them but my appeal I showed emails of asking for help and to my response...nothing. We had no tutoring available, no advisor meetings when requested as well. I will say that I created a plan of action for my appeal. To show what I did wrong and what I will approve on. It’s not just the teachers faults I get it but when covid hit I feel like it definitely prevented me from being the best student I could be. My school allows two attempts however this is my second attempt. My first attempt I didn’t fail I withdrew because of income. Which I should’ve realized that I was going to be in debt with no financial aid. So this year I did get financial aid. I passed fundamentals with a B. In my ob/peds I got level 3s on my proctors. I also showed that to the board hoping it will help me a little. I had to withdraw because I was also going to court for custody of my daughters; which is now resolved I’m not really sure what to do as I haven’t heard back because it takes 10 days and it’s only been 5. I am pretty sure they will deny me. I’ve had hardships which I explained in the appeal which by the way was 47 pages long. ADHD, my mother has schizophrenia and would bang on my door at 3 am but I didn’t put that, I don’t need everyone knowing my business that deeply, my step dad had 3 heart attacks, was diagnosed with kidney failure, my actual dad which is my grandpa I pay his bills which I had documentation for, plus two kids at home helping them with online, I work 2 jobs(I’m dumb) to cover my meds, my dads bills, my moms meds, and here and there expenses. I’m just wondering, what my chances are of winning my appeal, or what other options I have. I’m done with pharmacology, fundamentals, med surg, and failed ob/peds clinical but passed theory(still a fail) and am now in the lpn(for now)

    failing due to less than .1 of a percent

    It’s basically one teacher. She rides on a high horse. The others have to follow her or else get faced with retaliation which is sad

    I had everything on me that was required. But something isn’t right when a program starts with 25 and ends with 6

    Actually they request to hear them in appeals!?! I’m so sorry, It’s very hard to understand why people struggle with mental illness. She also doesn’t take her medication which doesn’t help. I have prepared myself to get denied and I hope I don’t. All the students who appealed other than myself have been denied so far. I’m just waiting for my email

    Thats what I’m saying. Because I did have one that Me and another student agreed to borrow. I had it when I was doing meds for g tube and I was prepared when I was suppose to be. I didn’t go cry to the teacher I solved it myself. I don’t understand what I could’ve done different.

    Nursing Students COVID-19

    Whether you like it or not, you signed up to be a nurse. You know what comes with the job. Do your research and look at the history of pandemics and what took place. If you had more students to help you, you could “grab a bite.” And so you are aware My friend was in Italy with her husband who is in the military as a nurse. So I’m completely aware of what is going on and how much pain and suffering people are going through. If you let it get to you then it will get to you. That sounds weird but it’s the truth. Just like I said students would benefit going to other areas to help, or to even grab food for other nurses since you mentioned that. But instead of thinking of ways to help benefit you just think negatively.

    CNA 11 Years need your help

    There’s no law that technically forbids this. Umm I’m not sure about facility to facility. I live in a very small rural area and we are known to check on our patients when they go home because we worry and become close to them. We know not to accept gifts or anything like that but if they need something we are more than happy to do it. Also can you find their policy and read it and see if there’s anything that prohibits this?

    Half our students failed ob/peds. Started with 27 in the program for our campus and technically have 6 left. Don’t be a cry baby, but admit what you did wrong, make an action plan, and file an appeal.

    Nursing Students COVID-19

    I don’t feel it’s a bad idea. I feel it’s a good learning experience. Maybe not to push them to be with covid patients but to put them on less “stressful” units. There are other nurses on those units who they could assist. They don’t have to do invasive but could help give IMs, certain meds, showers, ambulate, or just be there as company to patients. As nurses we should think outside of the box. You might be in the heart of the pandemic but you shouldn’t let it stifle you from teaching. As a nurse you are a teacher to new nurses and you just shouldn’t throw that out. Unfortunately no one saw this pandemic coming and being as destructive as it has.

    No zoom, we used Google hangouts for lectures, and canvas for everything else. Nothing changed at all for us except we lost the availability to receive more points that were given to previous years. I don’t have facebook though. I deleted it when I started school to limit me being distracted. Which was a good idea. True. It’s hit or miss with this covid as well. I understand they struggle as much as we do. But you have to admit they know what to teach even if it isn’t extensively

    Dismissed, what now?

    What state is your school in?

    I have a hard time "thinking like a nurse"

    ABCs, Maslow’s Hierarchy, Nursing process Its hard to get into the process of thinking but always look at their airway, breathing, and circulation first if none of those apply then move on the maslow’s, then use the nursing process to always assess first!

    I actually think this is a good idea, but not for say 1st year students in an ADN but those in the RN year already. Same with BSN the 4th years only. If it’s the NCLEX that’s blocking that then maybe let them take it first or early as the deciding factor. To ppl saying it isn’t fair, come on it’s a dang pandemic going on. I would rather have someone taking care of me or my family with some school and little experience rather than no one at all! See that’s what I mean! It’s not about that. If you think of it in the way of them taking care of patients who are less at risk or in acute care areas then it would work.

    I can see where you’re coming from. A lot of people on here are a little harsh because with everything going on in the world even accreditation has called for “flexibility.” My program started out with 53 and is now down to 14. They recently failed 12 more students which resulted in the 14 after this Spring semester. I was one of those students. I have filed an appeal. The idea is to learn and if you want to fail students based on a 1% then it shows an issue especially when the highest grade is 3 percent above the failing. I mean come on now! We all have hardships, we all can do better but unfortunately if the school didn’t change their policy it’s on them. For instance. You cannot grade the same way for online if the class states it’s a traditional face to face. No one expected a pandemic to happen but it did so adjustments should be made. Students are there to learn and if that many students are failing then the teachers aren’t teaching properly.
