I got a 75% on my final I ended up with a 79.9% which is a C even though I passed I am still not happy b/c I got a C. I know I should be happy but I'm not. :crying2: Well what can I do nothing. I will be okay but I just wanted a B.

I got a B and wanted an A but I know some people with a 74 that are not coming back. All I have heard since I got into school is "C=RN". Remember the old song, "Don't worry, be happy".
:chuckle At least you will be back next semester.

I don't totally buy that C=RN deal, but I have learned that grades aren't everything. I was a lot more relaxed about it this fall than I was last spring, but wound up with three A's and a B both times. I feel like I actually learned more this fall.
I heartily recommend a study group if you aren't happy with your grades. Arguing it out with peers can be as instructive as listening to lecture. I also recommend getting as much rest as you can. Sleep is as necessary as money or food. You won't get enough of any of them in nursing school, but you need to get as much as you can.
(Well, okay, you can get enough food, but you need to make time for food that can't be eaten in the car.)
If you know the material, don't fret too much about the grade. If you don't know the material, review. Some of this stuff takes a while to digest. It's too late to do much about the grades you already have, but you can still build a foundation for next semester.
Anyway, good luck. I'm going back to bed, now.

Good luck. If you continue to make it through the program, graduate, pass NCLEX, then your C will equal an RN. The important thing is your trying, your learning, and striving to improve.
Good luck to you!
