Well, since no one else is willing to splurge then I will. I failed a class, two classes in my life - one in community college (Poli-Sci THE MOST BORINGEST CLASS EVER; I literally would fall asleep in that class, pulled off an A the next time around). And unfortunately I bombed a nursing class by 0.5% literally one question could have spared me. Do I regret it? No way! I needed that to wake myself up!
In my personal life, my mind was SO preoccupied on my ex-boyfriend trying to maintain a long distance relationship which should have ended before he went back home to Europe. It was then that I realized I couldn't handle a relationship and school at the same time. I sobbed in my car, I felt it was the end of the world, I felt alone and stupid especially knowing that I had changed my answer on a test to a repeat question and if I hadn't done that, I would have moved on! That CHF question haunted me. It was a patho class. But guess what, next time around I got an A.
I'm a much stronger student for that failure. Too many people have no clue what it's like to fail. I'm even on my way to Magna Cum Laud for graduation, can you believe that? I'm one of the top students in my class. I like my cohort better because no one splits themselves up into little cliques, they don't leave anyone behind. And although we've lost some students in our cohort, I am always there to support them like I will with you and anyone who needs it. The feeling sucks, I get that. But it doesn't matter, as long as you're still in the game ready to win. Your failure doesn't define you.
Make sure you keep going strong ... keep up healthy habits and give yourself a pat on the back, smile. You're still here. :) You want to be a nurse right? GRIND!
