    Dismissed, what now?

    I get it. Your are better than me. Good for you. I thought you said you "likely wouldn't be back in this part of Allnurses again"? Guess you changed your mind ...

    Thank you, this is valuable advice. I will look into that, too!

    That's what I have been doing, anewmanx. Thank you for your suggestion!

    @Nurse SMS - you are the one who needs humbling. You know nothing about me or my background, and yet you made quite a few incorrect assumptions. No, I did not "sleep a lot". And no, my job was not a cop-out. It was a very stressful and demanding position, but in a field that would have been very beneficial to me once I had an RN. Your post is rude, judgmental and unhelpful. I hope this is not how you treat your patients and colleagues, smh. To the others, thank you very much for your replies! My appeal was denied. I failed by 0.2 points and was dismissed from the school. I don't think it is fair, but it is what it is. I went into that program with a Bachelor's in physics and a 3.7 GPA, but this was harder. I did well on my clinicals, studied very hard and was able to grasp the concepts, but the NCLEX-style questions killed me. Aside from that full-time job, I have a medical condition that flared-up unexpectedly and a death in the family. Things got tricky, but I was still able to focus and prioritize my school work. The person who reviewed my petition at the school said that "lots of people go through that and do OK". I felt like saying "I am not lots of people", but I bit my tongue, thanked them for their help and walked away. I suspect she didn't even read my medical paperwork. Four years, tons of effort and thousands of dollars later, I came out empty. My two options are either start from scratch or give up on nursing altogether.

    Failed nursing school(technically)

    I know a student who is in a similar situation. She was allowed to watch a surgery during one of her clinicals. For some reason the team did not have a certain instrument but the doctor was able to manage it anyway. After the surgery the teacher gave the student a hard time and told her that she would have been able to help if she had brought her own stash of instruments. Everyone was horrified. What ever happened to sterile fields? The student ended up failing for that reason despite having a passing grade on her test average. She was also dismissed from her school. I am not certain but I think they denied her appeal. I really hope you are able to continue. I too was dismissed from my program recently for less than a point. No other failures, disagreements, warnings or absences. I have a full-time job and a serious medical condition but they did not care about that. I feel that a lot of these nursing programs treat us as if we were disposable because they are in high demand these days. It's a shame. As everyone else said, hope for the best but prepare for the worst. Good luck!

    I appealed for a redo at my old school. Told them I a am aware it was because of my job, which I have since resigned. They are looking into it, but I am not hopeful. They seem very strict with these things. I failed because I had a full-time job while going to school. I thought I could do it, but found out the hard way that I can't. Thank you all for replying. I will let you know what they say.

    Hi all, I am new to this forum. Thanks for having me! So I failed two classes from my nursing program and was dismissed. I loved the school. It's really a shame it didn't work out. I worked incredibly hard and missed the mark by less than a point. I want to continue on my path to becoming an RN but I have no idea what to do next. Anyone been in my shoes and was able to find another program? Thank you!
