my 3rd semester i hit acute care 1, the class that fails alot of people. I failed the first exam. I remeber after thinking, "is this it, am not not made for this, should I quit". Then at that point I made a decision. Whatever it took, I would do it. No matter how much pain and work I had to do, I would pass. I studed over 100 hours for the next test and I got in the 90s, and I remember crying. Now people tell me that they think I am so smart. I tell them I take nothing for granted, I am not smart I just study every free minute. I want to be a nurse so bad I can taste it, and I wont let myself fail. And im graduating with a 3.3 gpa.
