Hello Nursing Family,
I come here with such a heavy heart. It aches so much that I have been to so many pinnings, none of them my own.
I have not succeeded as I would have hoped in my attempts to become a nurse back in 2016. A few years have come and gone, and I am trying to put my mind back together for this. To come back and do it all over again. New school, expired sciences, additional prerequisites required (some of them sciences not required at my last institution), and a dismissal to my name. My last program allowed 2 attempts, the first I prematurely felt I wasnt able to pass (now I regret so much) so I dropped to save my GPA and re-entered the following cohort. The 2nd, failed OB med math at the start of third semester. I was so close. I had passed everything else before with ease. But this test...I was scared and had a complete panic attack. Now, I feel so scared again. Scared that I will take all these classes again, take additional ones, test for the TEAS, and still might not get accepted because of my dismissal. Is it even worth it? I feel so depressed. Today was my sister in laws pinning....at the same program I failed to make it through. I have such a passion and love for nursing, and it hurts me so much knowing it all disappeared from one math test (every other med math I had passed with an A the first try). I need some wisdom, guidance, anything.
Thank you for your kind words in advanced
