    Should I try nursing again?

    Despite me failing 2 courses and getting kicked out the program, I don't want to give up on nursing just yet. I identified the reasons I failed on both occurrences and want to give it another try. However, I did switch my major to Sociology and will be graduating this December. I would much rather apply to Accelerated BSN programs as opposed to traditional. If not, I guess I wouldn't mind going the LPN route after graduating, if possible. Is there anyone who has similarly experienced what I'm currently going through?

  3. I originally thought it was nursing. I applied to my nursing program, got accepted, failed a class, retook it and passed, then I failed another and now I'm out the program. I'm passionate about helping people. I love the satisfaction in knowing I helped someone in any way, shape, or form. I love being around people and being in their presence. The healthcare field is amazing.. For some weird reason I just love being in hospitals doing work or really any other healthcare setting. A few friends recommended I should look into physical or occupational therapy. I researched both careers, especially OT because I never heard of that. I kind of wish I knew about OT before nursing. Let me know what y'all think. It's so hard for me to be hopeful about the future but at the same time I'm embracing this change and taking it as God directing my path. I would love to take another attempt in nursing, however I'm sure other nursing programs won't accept someone who previously failed out another nursing program. Currently I'm a sociology major, graduating this December. I'm only 22, GPA 3.48. I know I have my whole life ahead of me
  4. I used NP to abbreviate 'nursing program' not 'nurse practitioner.'
  5. 1) How I type on the internet necessarily doesn't reflect my ability to perform in a classroom setting. If you judge someone's intelligence by how they type on the internet, you're more than likely less intelligent than they are. Some people on this website do this and it's rather pathetic, sad, ridiculous, ignorant, you name it! 2) I used NP to abbreviate nursing program, not nurse practitioner. Have a good day! :)
  6. I was thinking OT school as another healthcare profession too. I really won't decide until I shadow either or, but i appreciate all the honest feedback btw! Just in the process of figuring things out for the future.
  7. I didn't fail out twice, just failed 2 times, so now I won't be officially withdrawn from the program until the end of the semester - April.
  8. Me not studying for that final was just a one time occurrence though. I learned from it, took the class over, and did much better. I just hate that med calc was the reason for my 2nd shortcoming, even though I went through allllllllllll of the practice med calc questions they gave to us. It's not like i don't know how to do them either, since we also have med calc in our clinical practice course and I easily made my 100 and received those 10 points....so who knows. Maybe I'm meant to help people in another career
  9. the 1st reason i failed was me being complacent and not studying for my healthcare final. The second was me not making my 100 on med calc and not receiving those 10 points. I'm pretty average with the skills we performed so far and simulation. My testing strategies are getting better but I just don't know....maybe nursing isn't for me even though I still do find joy in helping people in whichever way I possibly can. I'm just currently all over the place right now in searching grad programs. I will shadow an OT & PT in the upcoming weeks though
  10. Failed out NP 2 times, barely passing for each course....should I even attempt to apply for a DPT after I graduate with my BS in biology or should I try a MPH/MHA program? idk what to do at this point

    What to do after failing out nursing program?

    At the end of the day I just want a career where I know I truly and directly made a difference in their lives
  12. I know this really ain't nursing related, but please bear with me. Since nursing school didn't work out in my favor, I'm stuck between getting my masters in health administration or getting a DPT (doctorate in physical therapy) For the MHA programs it looks like they accept any bachelor degree background & for the DPT programs I already have all the Pre reqs. Just need to take the GRE for both schools, and do volunteer hours for DPT. I'm stuck between which one I want to pursue. Healthcare administration does sound pretty fascinating
  13. I'm in my 4th semester and I failed because i didn't pass med calc with a 100 in my CBC course, so I didn't receive those 10 points which could've tremendously helped my grade. We also have med calc in our clinical practice class and I easily made my 100 on it. Anyway, I have to withdraw at the end of the semester. I still want to work in the hospital setting (for some reason I just love hospitals) but instead I'll start a biology degree in May. I only need 15-25 more credits to obtain the bio degree. I'll be done in december 2017, which is the time I would've graduated if I didn't fail out of nursing lol. For some reason I'm not taking this loss as hard as I thought I would've. It kinda sucks since I made some great friends in the process, but I'm sure I'll see them again....any inputs?
  14. I'm applying for a scholarship and one of the requirements are to interview someone who is already in the field I want to pursue, which would be nursing. They listed 6 questions to ask but we have to choose only 3 so i here's what I picked: What initially inspired you to pursue the industry that you are currently in? What would be one important piece of advice for someone like me who is considering going into the field that you are in? What was the biggest hurdle that you encountered when you were first getting started in this field and how did you overcome it? Thanks in advance!!
  15. I'm just curious. I heard some do pay more and some don't. Care to share your thoughts/experiences!! I'm currently a CNA btw. I have a side job at this Home health agency and I had to stay over someone's house for the 1st time ever lol
  16. I was checking the status of my application for patient care tech at a rehab hospital and they told me the patient census decreased so they had to un post the position, however it will be back up in January...is that a good or bad thing? i want the job soooooo bad!!
