70% = 35/50 that means I got 15 wrong on my big 7 credit foundational class exam today. I tried to hold in my disappointment but my fellow classmates could see through my disguise, at first a few people were staring at me because they thought I was going to cry but I didn't.
After asking around, others had scores just as low as mine but not many. I have a meeting set up tomorrow to talk to a few of my classmates who scored in the 90’s to hear some better studying techniques because I'm sure my way if flawed.
Later I saw my hubby and my tummy did a flip and I explained to him my score and problem with the test. He tried to talk to me about it, but at one point I got frustrated and just threw up my hands in the air and let the tears flow.
Then that nasty negative self doubt started creeping in and I started feeling like I knew I wasn't cut out for this nursing school adventure. I was thinking I have no business taking these classes and trying to "fool" myself into thinking I should be a nurse.
Finally with red rimmed eyes I talked to my oldest sister tonight on the phone and she yanked me from my sinking ship and slapped me back into reality telling me that this one test doesn't define me and to get over it. She gave me another studying technique for next time and told me that some nurses are just better with patients than they are with getting every right answer on a test.
I love my sister, especially when she had the right thing to say at the right time!
