news flash...

.....or should I say, bad news flash? I did not pass the class by 2 points. I needed 78 points, and I got 76! Yup, you heard me correctly, two bloody points. So I will do the fourth semester dance again, and this time I'll get it right. The only worry at this point really, is getting back in. There are 10 of us who didn't pass, so they will have to have a lottery with the number of spots available. I just hope to get one of those or it could be next Fall that I'm back.

For those of you who haven't followed my blog, in our programs you have to have 75% to pass. I was at 73.9 or somewhere near that. It's a hard one to swallow, being so dang close. Very embaressing, and humbling. It's been very stressful, and I need a holiday. Thanks for all of your prayers, I really do appreciate them.

OH Heather! Two points!? Can't they just look at your overall performance? If only, right?

Take your break, relax and refresh and press on in the Spring!

Hang in there. I know several fantastic nurses who took a class over or the NCLEX over. Doesn't matter. It's just a hoop you must jump through. You will do it!
