Hi Mecha Sora, it's pretty much the same deal at this school. I failed a class so I get one more try and they don't count last year's medical leave.
I also plan on getting a CNA job and some therapy of course because gosh, I never planed to be in the nursing program for so long!
Thank you for the kind words, I wish people would talk more about their experiences in nursing school, especially when things go wrong and then what they did to fix it.
To answer one of your questions, not all employers ask new grad nurses for their transcripts. I know this because made it to near the end of my program, so I've already had a preceptorship, with a nurse manager no less, in a big hospital! He looks at work experience when hiring new grads, he doesn't give a fart about transcripts, certificates, etc. So if you get that CNA job, you're good. Also, know that the knowledge from med-surge and pathophysiology are very important in order to do well in Critical Care clinical. This also comes from personal experience. If you ace your Med-Surge clinical the next time around, then you should be fine in future rotations.
I wish you success Mecha! Things happen, that's life. :-/ I also explored why I failed my critical care clinical and what I have to do succeed next time. Of course the solution to that isn't easy, but it's definitely worth a shot. ;-)
If others can succeed despite their setbacks then so can we!!!
