So here I am...took my 2nd Foundations test and failed with a 62. My first test made an 88, and have two more tests to go. The funny thing is I am not mad. Most of our class as a whole failed and if you didn't fail you barly passed. The only frustrating part for me is that if I were the only one who failed then okay sure it's probably me, but when more than half of the whole Foundations students fail then it's not us it's you (being the school) in my opinion. The test it's self was written completely different from the first test making it difficult to learn how to study the "nursing way" and not to mention the reading load for this test was 20 chapters each about 20-25 pages long with 25-30 key terms in each. This ON TOP of being thrown into clinicals with a brick tied to our feet and the first performance evaluation in skills...it seems a bit unfair. If I am whining then so be it but I'm sorry, I refuse to let nursing school take over my life. I have a family and a son who depend on me and a job that requires I pay some what attention to what I am doing (although I study mostly at work). The fact that my school expects everyone to quit their lives, quit their jobs, ad isolate themselves completely is an insult in my opinion. Until I start getting a paycheck to go to school or financial aid steps it up big time that is impossible. Anyways rant over..:) just wanted to get this off my chest. Good luck to everyone else if it is test week for you!
