oh gosh the memories
I ended up failing my first nursing semester. The really odd thing though was that in the class we had 5 exams. In the first I was a couple of points away from passing, the second I totally bombed, the third i passed, and the 4th and 5th I did really well on. Still I was walking into the final with a failing average. Oddly enough I got one of the highest grades on the final. BUT IMAGINE THIS....I was exactly one question short of passing the class. HOW EPIC WAS THAT?
I felt horrible, stayed in my room for like a month, almost turned into a caveman...[woman].
But one day I just slapped some sense into myself...picked up the pieces and returned to class the following semester to repeat the course (we are only allowed to repeat a course once at my school).
Overall in a weird way, I am kinda glad that I failed because it helped me improve my knowledge, skills, and overall mindset of nursing.
So remember whenever one door closes, another one is sure to open
