Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

My heartbreaking confession.......

Despite having a B on all of my written tests and clinical (hospital) paperwork, I was kicked out of nursing school yesterday (on my and DH's anniversary) because I messed up on my skills test twice. I was just 14 months away from becoming a RN and yesterday my dream was flushed down the toilet. We only get 2 tries to show a professor we have mastered a skill. If we don't master it in those two tries we are dismissed from the program, even if we have great grades on everything else. My professor said I was an excellent student but rules are rules. I am at work but I can't stop crying. I am ashamed and hurt and disappointed and I really just want to be home under the covers. I will never get over this. I am so depressed and have no interest in ever do anything again.

Yes you WILL.

Just accept that you weren't ready yet in that aspect and pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and GET READY for the next enrollment where you CAN and SHOULD try again!

Honey, do you think you're the first person to fail that portion? You also certainly will not be the last.

You know where your weaknesses are now, build on those and make them become your strengths and kick SO MUCH FUCKING ASS next time! You can do it! Chin up.

Nursing school isn't that hard. Which skill was it?

I'm so sorry. That's awful. I know you don't want to hear this, but never forget that a door never closes without a window opening. You can either stand and wait for the door to open again, or you can get busy climbing through the window. Things will improve, may not seem like it now, but they will.

Your dreams aren't down the drain. There are other schools.
