Well here I am in week 5 of my first year. All through my pre-recs I have had a "study buddy" we met in comp 1, found out we were both headed for nursing and have been together ever since. Well last week during our med/surg class we started to cover stress. Our instructor was trying to be funny and gave the example that us students were under situational stress because of our upcomming test, and that if we didn't pass it we would be "out of the program". Everyone in the class laughed and understood the joke except my friend. She took the instructors coment to heart and went home, emailed the instructors and withdrew from the program! I have tried to explain to her that she maybe just needs to take a deep breath and she will realize she will do fine, but she has made up her mind she isn't comming back. I am now at a total loss now, I know it may seem selfish, but I have no one to turn to for support! I tried this weekend to attend a study group with some of the other students in my class, but all that ended up doing was confusing me more.
Sorry for rambling, I guess my question is what do I do now? Is it possible to go through this without a partner in crime?
